The Washington Stealth traded away one of the faces of their franchise on Monday when they sent Paul Rabil to the Edmonton Rush in exchange for Athan Iannucci and a first-round draft pick in 2012.
Rabil, an all-star this season has three goals and five assists in five games. The Stealth, though, have struggled offensively and general manager Doug Locker said that a deal had to be made.
“It was a difficult decision,” Locker said. “Paul has given a lot to the organization and has a ton of lacrosse experience. But we just had to make a move.”
Iannucci, who lives in Coquitlum, British Colombia, said that he was pleased with the trade.
“I couldn’t be happier,” Iannucci said. “Locationally it’s the closest place to me.”
