Team Canada Names 3 Peterborough Lacrosse Players To Roster


Team Canada named its roster today (November 6th) for their November 17th exhibition game against the Iroquois Nationals, and three Peterborough natives cracked the squad. Cory Vitarelli, Mike Grimes and Shawn Evans—Evans and Vitarelli are pictured at left from their recent appearance on TSN SportsCentre—will all suit up in what will be the first International lacrosse game to be played at the Bell Centre in Montreal since it opened on March 16th, 1996.

Vitarelli plays pro lacrosse in the National Lacrosse League (NLL) for the Rochester Knighthawks, while Evans plays for the Calgary Roughnecks and is the league's reigning MVP. Both of them still live in Peterborough and play summer ball with the Lakers. Grimes moved to British Columbia a few years back and he'll suit up this winter for the NLL's newest franchise, the Vancouver Stealth (formerly the Washington Stealth). Peterborough Laker Jordan MacIntosh was also named to the team.

Game time is 2 p.m. on November 17th and tickets can be purchased online here.
