The National Lacrosse League preseason officially begins this weekend with three exhibition games on Saturday, Dec. 8, as the Toronto Rock host the Edmonton Rush at their new practice facility, the Rochester Knighthwaks play at home against the Minnesota Swarm and the Calgary Roughnecks take on the Colorado Mammoth in British Columbia.

The Rock and Rush open the NLL preseason on Saturday night at the newly-built Toronto Rock Athletic Centre (TRAC) in Oakville, Ont. at 7 p.m. The exhibition will be televised live on TVCogeco and Rogers TV in select regions throughout Ontario. To read more about the game, please click here.
