The Colorado Mammoth have announced that Dan Coates, the first defenseman selected in the 2011 NLL Entry Draft, has signed a one-year agreement to return to the organization for the 2013 season, pending league approval. Coates, 25, had 94 loose balls, tied for fifth-most in the NLL among non-faceoff men.

“Dan was a standout for us in his rookie campaign,” said Mammoth president & general manager Steve Govett. “He showed the ability to play great defense, and to get up and down the floor in transition.”

The Canisius College alumnus had three goals, seven assists and eight forced turnovers in 16 regular-season games played in 2012.

Colorado has now re-signed all five of its selections from the first two rounds of the 2011 draft.

The Mammoth open the 2013 season at home on HealthONE Field at Pepsi Center on Saturday, January 12 against the Washington Stealth.
