Prout Signs Three-Year Deal with Colorado Mammoth
Free agent Boyle also signs with club
from press release
DENVER – The Colorado Mammoth announced today that the team has signed forward Gavin Prout, the franchise's all-time leading scorer, to a three-year agreement. Prout, a 10-year NLL veteran, is currently two points shy of 800 for his career.
"Our offense, and our team as a whole, was reinvigorated last year at the trade deadline when we re-acquired Gavin and brought in several other players," said Mammoth President & General Manager Steve Govett. "I'm happy that we now have him under contract for three more years."
Colorado won four of the six regular-season games Prout appeared in during the 2011 season, en route to the team earning its eighth playoff berth in nine seasons. The 33-year-old, Oshawa, Ontario native is entering his eleventh year in the NLL, and eighth as a member of the franchise.
The Mammoth also announced the free-agent signings of forward Ryan Boyle and transition player Scott Stewart, as well as defenseman Jon Sullivan, who the team acquired in an off-season trade with the Minnesota Swarm. All three deals are one-year agreements, pending league approval.
Training camp begins this Friday, December 2 at Parker Fieldhouse.
The Colorado Mammoth opens the 2012 season against the Minnesota Swarm on "Brian Langtry Night" on Saturday, January 14th and 7pm MST on HealthONE Field at Pepsi Center.
