The Oakville Rock have traded forward/transition player Jordan MacIntosh to the Kitchener-Waterloo Kodiaks for goalie Steve Fryer. KW also receives a 3rd round pick in the 2017 junior draft in the deal.

MacIntosh, 25, played eight games for Oakville in 2014, scoring 8 goals and 14 assists for 22 points. He spent the two previous seasons with the Peterborough Lakers, including helping them to win the 2012 Mann Cup. He started his career as MSL's rookie of the year with the Ajax Rock in 2011, scoring 28 goals and 24 assists for 52 points, after spending his Jr A career with the Burlington Chiefs. MacIntosh plays for the Rochester Rattlers of Major League Lacrosse in the summer and generally isn't available for a full MSL schedule. He has been named the NLL's transition player of the year the last two seasons.

Fryer, also 25, was voted a second team all-star once each in the Ontario and BC Jr A leagues. He spent a season with the Langley Thunder of the WLA and a season and a half with MSL's Brooklin Redmen before being traded to KW last summer. Fryer is on the Toronto Rock's practice squad, so he continues the trend of Oakville adding Toronto players to their roster.
