In on of the more anticipated trades in the National Lacrosse League, the Colorado Mammoth have traded for rookie forward Jeremy Noble. Noble was the second overall pick to the Rochester Knighthawks in the 2014 NLL draft and did not sign.
Rochester traded Johnny Powless to Vancouver for the pick, but Noble expressed he could travel to the east coast every week for games. Playing with MLL’s Denver Outlaws and a graduate from Denver University, the Mammoth became speculation for Noble’s ultimate destination.

The return for Noble going to Rochester is a first round pick in 2016 and 2017 along with their third round pick in 2015, this year’s draft.
