Lakers load up for season
Peterborough Lakers general manager Jamie Batley made a pair of deals to help them get ready for another run at the Mann Cup.
The Lakers first move was when they traded Ryan Cousins to the Six Nations Chiefs for Brandon Francis.
“Brandon will add toughness to the Lakers and he is a noted faceoff man in lacrosse,” Batley said. “We thank Ryan for his past contribution and wish him well iun the future.”
The Lakers then traded Jeff Gilbert and a second round draft pick in 2012 to Brooklin for Gavin Prout and Steve Hutchins.
“Again we thank Jeff for his Laker work and wish him well,” Batley said, “with both brothers Brock and Kyle Sorensen ready on D for the Lakers this year coming and transition player Brad Self returning to the Lakers, we felt that Jeff could be a trade possibility.”
