Doug Noganosh Acquired by Rebel in Trade with New Jersey
OTTAWA -- The Ottawa Rebel of the National Lacrosse League acquired defence specialist Doug Noganosh in a trade today with the New Jersey Storm. In exchange for Noganosh, the Storm receives an eighth-round draft choice in the 2003 NLL Entry Draft.
Noganosh, 29, joins the Rebel as the team attempts to earn its first playoff berth since the franchise moved to Ottawa three years ago. The 5-foot-11, 215-pound police officer from Rama, Ontario scored one goal in four games for New Jersey this season.
Noganosh spent last season in Ottawa, scoring five goals and nine points in 10 games with the Rebel.
To make room for Noganosh on the team's 23-player roster, the Rebel assigned veteran defenceman Steve Fannell to the injured reserve list. Fannell suffered a torn ACL during a game February 7 against the Toronto Rock.
The Rebel visit the Rochester Knighthawks in the club's next game, Friday, February 28 at the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York.
Ottawa's next home game is Saturday, March 8 against the Vancouver Ravens at the Civic Centre (Lansdowne Park). The game begins at 7 p.m.
