Generals Acquire Goalie Leo Lake

The Northeast Generals acquired Cumberland, RI goaltender Leo Lake from the Wilkes Barre Miners in a trade this weekend.  The acquisition marked the first trade in Generals history.  

"It was a no brainer for us.  We had an open spot in net and the Miner's had a logjam in their goal.  Leo is a goalie we have had our eye on for a while so the trade made sense for us on a lot of levels" Generals Head Coach Bryan Erikson said.  "He is a big kid, 6'2" that moves well and he had a ton of success in high school playing for Cumberland.  We think Leo has a ton of potential and can help us this year.  We are really excited about Leo."

Leo joins Trevor Trudeau and Steven Murphy in the Generals net.
