Machine Select Twelve Players in Supplemental Draft

March 19, 2016
COLUMBUS, OHIO (December 16) – The Ohio Machine, Ohio’s Major League Lacrosse team, selected 12 players during the 2016 MLL Supplemental Draft on Wednesday, December 16. The team’s roster currently stands at 35 players.

 

With its first pick in the Supplemental Draft, the Machine selected attackman Jack Rice 16th overall. A 2013 graduate of Villanova, Rice scored 14 goals in seven games for the Chesapeake Bayhawks last season. He has totaled 22 goals in 13 career MLL games. Ohio selected defenseman Matt Harris with the seventh pick in the third round (25th overall). He has played in six MLL games, all with the Florida Launch.

 

In the fourth round, the Machine selected seven-year veteran goalie Adam Fullerton. He appeared in four games for the Launch last season and posted a 14.04 goals-against average. Ohio used a pair of fifth-round picks on midfielder Sam Snow and defenseman Chris Piccirilli.

 

“We drafted a number of skilled players to our roster that we expect to have big impacts on our success this coming season,” Machine Vice President and Head Coach Bear Davis said. “We added players with proven MLL experience that can help develop our younger guys.”

 

With the 61st overall selection, the Machine drafted Sean Meagher, who played under Davis at Robert Morris. Zach Palmer was taken in the 11th round of the draft. He recorded eight goals and three assists in six games with Ohio last season.

Through the waiver process, defenseman Ty Souders, midfielder Reagan Harding, and midfielder Lee Coppersmith were also acquired by the Machine. The full list of selections can be found below.

Season tickets for the Machine’s 2016 campaign are now on sale and range from general admission at $84 to a field level box at $2,100 and include seven regular season home games.
