Annapolis, MD After three weekends of training camp, the Chesapeake Bayhawks have announced their 25-man roster according to head coach Dave Cottle. Making up the team are some veteran stand outs and talented new faces who made a big impression on Cottle during training camp.

"We had a lot of difficult decisions to make," Cottle said. "We respect all the guys that tried out and appreciate the time they spent as Bayhawks. I hope they get picked up by other teams. We will have even more roster moves to make as the NLL teams finish their season and we will have to make more tough decisions."

Boston Cannons

BOSTON, MA - April 22, 2013 - The Boston Cannons announced their 25-man active roster and 6-man practice squad for the start of the 2013 season, according to Cannons general manager Kevin Barney.

"Obviously, this year was hard with all the talent we had in camp, and cutting the roster down was difficult," said Cannons head coach Steve Duffy. "But we're excited with the guys we have and we're looking forward to getting started in New York this week."

The Cannons open the 2013 season this Sunday, April 28 at 3:30 pm on the road against the New York Lizards at Hofstra University's Shuart Stadium. The Cannons lost both games to the Lizards last season, first 13-10 at Harvard Stadium then 14-11 in Long Island.

On Saturday, May 4, the Cannons host the Hamilton Nationals in their home opener at Harvard Stadium at 7:00 pm. The Cannons remain home to face the Denver Outlaws on May 11 and the Chesapeake Bayhawks on May 18, both games at 7:00 pm.

With five veterans on the NLL Inactive List while they compete in the indoor playoffs - Mitch Belisle, Kevin Buchanan, Pat Heim, Paul Rabil and Kyle Sweeney - the active roster includes several new players, including Martin Bowes (Hartford '12, midfield), Tom Celentani (UMass '12, defense), Malcolm Chase (Whittier '01, defense), Kevin DeBenedetto (Saint Anselm, '10, defense), and JJ Gilbane (Cornell '12, midfield).

Trade additions include Brent Adams, acquired from the Chesapeake Bayhawks for a fifth round pick in the 2014 Collegiate Draft; Colin Briggs, acquired from the Charlotte Hounds for a second round pick in the 2014 Collegiate Draft; and Tim Kaiser, acquired today from the New York Lizards for a third round pick in the 2014 Supplemental Draft.
