The Toronto Rock have announced that five players were released from training camp on Sunday. Defensemen Nick Inch, Kyle Andrews, Pete Rennie and Robert Koger, along with forward Dustin Caravello, have been released. The cutdown brings the Rock's roster down to 31 players heading into the next weekend of camp.
Inch was acquired from the Minnesota Swarm in a multi-player deal prior to the 2012 season, but did not play last season. Andrews was signed as an unrestricted free agent and was originally drafted by Rochester in 2011. Rennie was a Rock draft pick in 2011 and spent the entire 2012 season on the team’s practice roster. Koger and Caravello were each selected in the 2012 NLL entry draft by Toronto.
On Saturday night at the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre (TRAC), the Rock fell 12-8 to the Edmonton Rush in Toronto’s first of three preseason tune-ups.
The Rock will travel to Quebec next weekend to face the Rochester Knighthawks at the Bell Centre in Montreal on Saturday, Dec. 15 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the preseason game can be purchased online here.
Toronto’s final exhibition scrimmage of the preseason will be on Saturday, Dec. 22 at 7 p.m. against the Philadelphia Wings at the TRAC.
