Roughnecks Let Go of Jackson, McBride

The Calgary Roughnecks continued their cuts today when they released Jordan McBride, Pat Henry, and Casey Jackson. McBride signed as a free agent out of Vancouver this off season while Jackson was an undrafted free agent and Henry was drafted by the team.

McBride has played 28 career NLL games between Colorado and Vancouver and has a career 76 points. A team that needs depth could pick him up. He played for Team Scotland’s field lacrosse team in the FIL this summer.

Jackson was a stand out with RIT and Sr A with the Burnaby Lakers. His career high in points overall came in 2010 with the Victoria Junior Shamrocks when he added 88 points. He has 205 career points at thr junior level with Victoria and Coquitlam.

Calgary’s offense, without Scott Ranger, still has some depth to it. Marty Dinsdale breaking out in his two preseason games has to be a positive sign and why they could afford to release a player like McBride.
