Langley Thunder take Chilliwack lacrosse star

Dawson Rodin was selected by the Thunder in last weekend's Junior A Lacrosse League draft.

Chilliwack native Dawson Rodin was drafted by the Langley Thunder in last weekend’s BC Junior A Lacrose League draft.

Rodin was selected in the sixth and final round, going 42nd overall.

Heading into the draft, Rodin was listed among 20 prospects to watch by prognosticator Chris Fox, with the following scouting report appearing on the BCJALL website.

“A big right hander that can shoot hard and has heavy shot, he slashes through the middle to create space for himself and teammates,” Fox wrote. “He does need to see floor better for the open guy but intermediate will give him that.”

Rodin is also a hockey netminder and appeared in one junior A game for the BCHL’s Powell River Kings in late October.
