Wings, Bandits, Mammoth, Swarm Finalize Rosters

Offensively, there's little question. The Mammoth led the NLL in scoring in 2012, and also boasted the league's top power play. Now, the team adds Clark and Dalgarno to the mix.

Right-handed forward Jordan McBride, a second-round selection in the 2011 NLL Entry Draft, is poised for a break-out season. He led the team in scoring in both preseason games, netting a hat trick in the first game and four goals in the second.

Six defensemen, including West Division All-Star starter Rory Smith, are joined by Koneczny. Levis, who represented the division as a starter in the NLL All-Star Game in 2012, is back between the pipes.

Defenseman Jarett Park and goaltender Tye Belanger begin the season on the Injured Reserve and Physically Unable to Perform lists, respectively. University of Denver alumnus Alex Demopoulos, a 2012 sixth-round draft pick, has been assigned to the Mammoth's practice squad.

Colorado revamped its roster in the last two drafts, with ten combined picks. Nine of the 10 players selected are expected to contribute this season.

The Mammoth, which finished the 2012 regular season with the second-best record (11-5) in the NLL, opens the 2013 campaign on HealthONE Field at Pepsi Center against the Washington Stealth on Saturday, January 12 at 7:00 pm MT.
