OTTAWA – Dane Dobbie made the grade as the Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA) and the men’s indoor national team coaching staff recently revealed the final roster for the Canadian Men’s Indoor Lacrosse Team.
The team will defend its 2015 gold medal at the 2019 World Indoor Lacrosse Championships in Langley, BC, from Sept. 19 to 28.
“Selecting the 23-man roster for Canada is always a challenge because of the depth of talent within our nation,” said Glenn Clark, head coach of the Canadian Men’s Indoor Lacrosse Team.
“We are very excited about the roster choices and feel that this group will represent our country well.
“The talent and character that will be on display during the WILC will make our country proud.
Eddie Comeau, general manager of the team, said “As always, selecting the team that will represent Canada at the world indoor lacrosse championships is a very difficult task.
This year was no exception.”
Dobbie, a former Elora Mohawks Jr. B lacrosse team member, led the Calgary Roughnecks to the 2019 National Lacrosse League (NLL) championship.
He had four goals and three assists in the final game and was named the series MVP.
The Roughnecks won the 2019 NLL title with a 14-13 overtime win on May 25 against the Buffalo Bandits in Calgary.
Dobbie played two years for the Jr. B Mohawks in Elora before heading west in 2005 to play with the Jr. A Burnaby Lakers in British Columbia.
