Lakers Earn 7-5 Victory, Win 2019 Mann Cup
Date: Sep 11, 2019
The Commissioner of the Western Lacrosse Association has approved a blockbuster trade between the Coquitlam Adanacs and Maple Ridge Burrards, with the Burrards explicitly signalling their intent to make a run for a 2019 Mann Cup Championship.
The Adanacs have acquired the Burrards’ 1st round draft picks in the 2020 and 2022 Graduating Junior Draft, along with the playing rights to Chase McIntyre and Ryan Johnson, plus future considerations.
In return, the Burrards will receive the 2019 playing rights to Wes Berg, Alex Bohl, and Christian Del Bianco, as well as the playing rights to Brett Kujala, and the Adanacs’ 2nd round draft pick in the 2020 Graduating Junior Draft.
This trade now gives Maple Ridge a potent right side offence with Berg, Bohl, and existing players Ben McIntosh, Curtis Dickson, Mike Mallory, and Athan Iannucci. Del Bianco joins current primary goaltender Frank Scigliano who, in his six wins and only two losses, has stopped 256 of 300 shots on goal so far this season.
The Maple Ridge Burrards are on the road next against the Nanaimo Timbermen on Saturday, June 22nd at 7 pm.
The Coquitlam Adanacs visit the Langley Thunder on Wednesday, June 19th at 7:30 pm.
