COLUMBUS, Ohio– The Ohio Machine have acquired attackman Davey Emala from the Boston Cannons in exchange for midfielder Mark Cockerton and a 2019 7th round Collegiate Draft pick.
Emala, 27, scored 32 goals and notched five assists for 37 points in 14 games played last season. The winner of the 2015 Brine Most Improved Player, Emala currently has five goals, three assists and 13 ground balls in six games played this season.
“He’s a premier goal scorer in our league,” Head Coach and General Manager Bear Davis said. “He’s got some familiar faces around him such as Marcus Holman, who was one of his college teammates. I think he’s going to help us add some depth in some areas. We appreciate that all that Mark has done for us. He’s been a big part of our organization since we acquired him, and we wish him the best of luck in Boston.”
Emala will be available to play this weekend as the Machine travel to Chesapeake to take on the Bayhawks.
