VINC READY TO GET BACK TO ROCHESTER
12/06/2012 - 5:40pm

(December 6, 2012)... The last time Matt Vinc was standing on The Blue Cross Arena turf, he was raising the Champion's Cup over his head. On Saturday, the veteran goalie will kick off the 2012 preseason as the Knighthawks host the Minnesota Swarm at 8:00 p.m.

Vinc enters his eighth season in the NLL and third with the Knighthawks. The two-time NLL Goalie of the Year is coming off an incredible playoff run. In the 2012 postseason, he recorded 134 saves in only three games. He also notched a 10.67 goals-against average and a .807 save percentage. In the NLL Finals on May 19th, he limited Edmonton to a record-tying low six goals as Rochester rallied for a 9-6 victory.

Fans must have a ticket to enter the game. Fans can catch the game on Sportsradio 950 ESPN and online at www.sportsradio950espn.com.

“It will be great to get back in front of those fans again,” said Vinc. “Hopefully, we will give them a glimpse of the 2013 team.”

Rochester will conclude its preseason with a showdown against the Toronto Rock at the Bell Centre in downtown Montreal. The defending World Champion Rochester Knighthawks will battle the rival Toronto Rock on Saturday, December 15th at 7:30 p.m. at the home of the Montreal Canadiens.
