MLL: Toronto Trades Cinosky to Washington

from press release

BOSTON -- Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, today announced that the Toronto Nationals have traded all-star defenseman Joe Cinosky to the Washington Bayhawks, according to MLL Commissioner David Gross.  In exchange, Toronto receives the second overall pick in the 2010 supplemental draft from Washington.  Toronto will now own the second and sixth pick in the first round.
 
Joe Cinosky was selected with the ninth overall pick in the 2008 collegiate draft by New Jersey and played in 11 games for the Pride.  During the 2009 season, Cinosky played in all 12 games for the MLL champion Toronto Nationals, scooping 26 ground balls.  He also made his first MLL All-Star Game, participating on the Young Guns Team, and was most recently named to the 2010 U.S. men’s national team. 
 
Bayhawks general manager Scott Hiller is thrilled to add a player of Cinosky’s caliber. “With the addition of Mike Evans last year, and Joe this year, we have a great young defensive group," Hiller said. "We are excited about Joe joining the Bayhawks and contributing to the overall success of the team.”
 
Cinosky came to the MLL after an outstanding collegiate career at the University of Maryland, where he was a four0year starter, team captain and an All-American in 2008. 
 
Toronto coach Dave Huntley added, “Joe was a great player for us on our 2009 championship team and we are sure he will continue that next year with the Bayhawks.  We wish him well.”
 
The 2010 Major League Lacrosse Supplemental Draft will take place on Thursday, Dec. 10 at 2 p.m.  The 2010 Major League Lacrosse season begins on Friday, May 18.   Season highlights include the 2010 MLL All Star Game in Boston, MA on July 8, 2010 and the New Balance MLL Championship Weekend at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md., Aug. 21-22.
