Ian Rubel signs with Rocheser for two seasons

The Rochester Knighthawks have signed veteran defenseman Ian Rubel to a two-year deal.
Rubel has played nine seasons in NLL after appearing in two games with Minnesota in 2009. In his career, the stay-at-home defenseman has played in 90 games and recorded two goals, 11 assists and 148 loose balls. He is excited to get the opportunity to play in the NLL again.
"He is a lefty defenseman and is one of the best in the business," said Knighthawks Owner & GM Curt Styres of Rubel. "I have always liked the way he played."

Rubel is a three-time Champion's Cup winning defenseman. The 32 year old was acquired along with Aaron Bold and Cody Johnson, from Minnesota on October 14, 2009. Styres was impressed last year when he was included in a trade with the Swarm. The St. Catharines, Ontario, native won titles with the Toronto Rock in 2002, 2003 and 2005. In the 2002 Championship game he recorded one goal and one assist.

The Knighthawks will open the home portion of their schedule on Saturday, January 15th against the Toronto Rock at 7:35 p.m. at The Blue Cross Arena.
