The Toronto Rock have re-signed defender Rob Marshall to a one-year contract, General Manager Terry Sanderson announced on Thursday.
 
Marshall, a 7-year NLL veteran, played his first season in Toronto in 2006. The Arthur, Ontario native was a member of the 2011 Toronto Rock Champion’s Cup winning team and has played his entire NLL career with the Rock.
 
“Rob has been a core member of the defensive group and made significant contributions here for a long time,” said Sanderson.  “He’s got the speed and athleticism to defend anyone in the league and is a very valuable part of our defense.”

Earlier in the week, the Rock re-signed defender Jesse Gamble to a one-year contract.  Gamble was the Rock’s top pick in the 2011 NLL Entry Draft after being selected in the 2nd round, 17th overall.
 
The 24-year old cracked Toronto’s opening night roster in 2012 and played in a total of 11 games.  He scored 3 goals and added 6 assists for 9 points while collecting 55 loose balls.  Gamble proved to be Toronto’s most impactful rookie in 2012 injecting speed and athleticism into the lineup.
 
At the other end of the spectrum, veteran defender Bruce Codd announced his retirement on Monday after 13 seasons in the NLL.  The 34-year old native of Orangeville, ON played 183 career regular season games with stops in Albany, Columbus, Montreal, Ottawa, Arizona, Calgary and Toronto.
 
Later on Monday, Calgary announced that Codd has joined the coaching staff of the Roughnecks as an assistant to newly appointed Head Coach Curt Malawsky for the 2013 season.  He’s no stranger to the Calgary lacrosse scene having played there for 4 years, capturing a Champion’s Cup in 2009 with the Roughnecks.
