Returning players from the 2018 IIJL World Junior Lacrosse Championship include; Laine Hruska, Wyatt Haux, Quinn Ingalls, and Brendan Szabo. "We were able to see the rest of this core group at E-Box this past April, [Garrett] Depape, [Cooper] Gettel, [Callin] Harris, and [Sam] LeClair each bring value to the line-up." Said Fox of the new additions. "LeClair and his Junior B team [St. Catharines Spartans] were eliminated from the OJBLL playoffs, but he's still currently playing as an Affiliated Player with the St. Catharines Athletics [OJALL]. So, we might have to make some final adjustments to the roster if he remains unavailable."
The remaining seven (7) available spots of the 23 Man Final Roster will be announced the weekend of July 27th in preparation for a mini-camp, which will start August 3rd for the Canada international program. The 2019 IIJL World Junior Lacrosse Championship will take place August 6-11 at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre in Mississauga, Ontario.
