The Toronto Rock have announced the signing of Kasey Beirnes to a three-year contract. The Elora, Ontario native is preparing for his seventh season in Toronto, with training camp starting in a few weeks.
The deal was likely sealed after Beirnes enjoyed his most productive campaign since joining the Rock. During last year, the forward scored 31 goals and had 54 points in total, the third-highest season total of his 12-year career.
Rock GM Terry Sanderson, was understandably pleased with the signing, as he told www.torontorock.com: “Kasey is as consistent as they come. He is a leader in the room and on the floor. He often flies under the radar, but at the same time that might be part of what makes him so dangerous.”
The 33-year old previously played for the Columbus Landsharks, Arizona Sting and Minnesota Swarm. He will be looking to add to the NLL Champions Cup he won with the Rock in 2011.
Overall, the Rock signed 10 players, including Patrick Merrill, who agreed a two-year contract. Scott Evans, Rob Hellyer, Damon Edwards, Chris White, Scott Johnston, Rob Marshall, Mike Hobbins and Cam Woods all put pen to paper on one-year deals.
