Stealth Rush swap Codron for Hawksbee

After a weekend where the Washington Stealth lost a home-and-home series with the Edmonton Rush, the two teams decided to swap players.
The Stealth traded defender Tyler Codron to the Rush in exchange for veteran defender Ian Hawksbee.
Hawksbee has grown a reputation over the past handful of seasons as a good defender and one of the league's top loose ball grabbers.
The addition of Codron in Edmonton reunites the defender with Rush head coach and GM Derek Keenan, who drafted him in the first round of the 2007 entry draft (6th overall.
During the 2009 WLA season, both Hawksbee (New Westminster Salmonbellies) and Codron (Maple Ridge Burrards) were named to the league’s First All-Star Team. Hawksbee was also awarded the WLA’s Defender of the Year award that same summer.
