The Toronto Rock signed free agent forward Scott Evans to a one-year agreement on Saturday. Evans was released by the Edmonton Rush earlier this week.
The 31-year old Peterborough, Ontario native has posted a pair of 40-goal seasons during this eight-year NLL career with stops in Rochester and Edmonton. Last season in Edmonton, the right-hander scored 24 goals and added 23 assists for a total of 47 points in just 12 games.
"He's got some real jam and everyone hates to play against him," said Rock general manager Terry Sanderson. "He's going to come to camp and have the same opportunity that anyone else has when they walk through the door. It's up to Scott to make the best of things."
Evans is coming off a summer in which he captured his fifth Mann Cup Canadian Senior A championship with his hometown Peterborough Lakers of Ontario's Major Series Lacrosse. Evans sits fifth in all-time Mann Cup scoring with 118 points in 32 career games.
The Rock also signed 2012 third round draft pick Kyle Belton to a one-year agreement.
