Matt Zash, a defenseman, who Washington selected with its second pick in the Aug. 6 Orlando Titans dispersal draft, was traded Thursday to the Colorado Mammoth.
The Stealth received a third-round pick in the 2011 National Lacrosse League entry draft for the 26-year-old Massapequa, N.Y., native.
Zash, 5-11, 190 pounds, was a 32nd overall pick out of Duke University in 2006 by the New York Titans.
Washington would’ve needed to sign Zash, who earned seven points (two goals, five assists) in 10 games last season, to a new contract. Instead, the Stealth picked up an additional pick in the 2011 draft from Colorado after shipping their first-round 2011 pick to Calgary last week in the Jeff Moleski trade.
