The Rochester Rattlers have acquired Jay Card from the Long Island Lizards in a Major League Lacrosse Expansion Draft Deadline Day trade.  The Long Island Lizards acquired the eighteenth overall pick in the 2012 Major League Lacrosse Draft from the Rattlers. 

Jay Card was a three-time USILA All-America Honorable Mention with Hofstra University.  He was also selected First Team All-Colonial Athletic Association for three years.  In 2008 Card was named the Colonial Athletic Association Rookie of the Year, and in 2009 Card was named the Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Year.  In 44 career games Card scored 93 goals and had 44 assists for 136 points.  He was the fourteenth overall selection in the 2011 MLL Draft.

“We have been following Jay since his days with Hofstra, and were interested in him during the 2011 Draft.  We were looking for a specific type of attackman to play in our system.  We feel like Jay fills that need for us.”  Rochester Rattlers Owner and General Manager Rob Clark said.

Jay Card played nine games for the Long Island Lizards as a rookie in 2011.  He scored six goals for the Lizards.  He took 25 shots and put 13 shots on goal.  He also scooped one ground ball and logged 1:30 of penalty time.

The Rattlers traded the eighteenth overall pick in the 2012 MLL Draft to the Long Island Lizards.  The selection originally belonged to the Ohio Machine.  The Rattlers acquired the pick from the Machine in last week’s trade that sent Greg Bice, Anthony Kelly, Stefan Schroder, and Brett Garber to the Machine for four draft picks.
