Langdale Chosen First In 2001 Expansion Draft

06/15/2001, 1:17pm EDT
By National Lacrosse League

The Toronto Rock made a quick exit from the League's 2001 Expansion Draft. Each team can lose a maximium of four players, and the Rock did just that--Chris Langdale, Jamie Taylor, Ryan O'Connor and Craig Gelsvik were selected first, second, sixth and seventh, respectively.

Each time an existing team lost one player in the Draft, the team could "pull back" one of their unprotected players. Once an existing team lost four players in the draft, the rest of their unprotected players were automatically removed from the draft.
