The Edmonton Rush cast their netted staffs across the green, carpeted field of famed Rexall Place for their seventh season in the National Lacrosse League. Defender Kyle Rubisch, the Rush’s second-overall pick in September’s dispersal draft, cements the defense using skills acquired during his 2011 rookie season with the Boston Blazers, with which he corralled 143 loose balls and three goats loose from their pens. From seats along the corners of the field, fans will witness the 215-pound Rubisch patrolling the field as he looks to continue this year’s league-leading streak of more than 20 forced turnovers. Head coach and general manager Derek Keenan steers the offensive campaign led by forward Scott Evans, who has netted more than 20 goals so far in 2012. During breaks in the fast-paced action, the Crush dance team whirls with turf-twirling choreography, and lovable mascots Slush and Freez perform famous comedic-pair routines.
Since its inaugural season in 2006, the Edmonton Rush has steadily picked up wind, growing into a formidable club in the National Lacrosse League. After making its first playoff appearance in 2010, the team made it to the NLL finals in 2012, just barely missing out on earning the sport’s coveted netting-woven blazers. At the helm, hall-of-fame inductee, general manager, and head coach Derek Keenan continues to lead the team toward its first championship.
