Atlas LC trade Paul Rabil to Cannons LC


Paul Rabil his headed to the team where he started his professional lacrosse career. On Monday, the Premier Lacrosse League announced that Atlas LC had traded the veteran midfielder and the #6 pick in the PLL Entry Draft to Cannons LC in exchange for the #9 pick in the PLL Entry Draft, #8 pick in the 2021 PLL College Draft and a future first round pick in the 2022 PLL College Draft.

Paul Rabil's return to the Cannons isn't too shocking since many assumed he could find his way on the roster through the PLL Expansion Draft if Coach Ben Rubeor decided to leave him off his protected roster. Instead, Rubeor was able to gain even more draft capital in the PLL Entry Draft and 2021 and 2022 PLL College Drafts. The Atlas now possess the #3, #9, #14, and #22 picks in the PLL Entry Draft and the #1, #8, #17, #25 pick in the 2021 PLL College Draft.





In return, the Cannons add a veteran presence in Rabil, but also more importantly move up in the PLL Entry Draft, giving them the #1 and #6 selections in a draft featuring a ton of former MLL talent. Now, Coach Sean Quirk has put himself in a prime position to not only select Lyle Thompson first overall, but add his 2020 MLL Champion goaltender Nick Marrocco as well.

[…] The move for Paul Rabil almost made too much sense. Drafted by the Boston Cannons in 2006, Rabil will possibly end his prolific career with the team (kind of) that he began with. To get too caught up in the nostalgia of it all would be to miss the point. After a down year, Quirk is bullish on what Rabil can bring as a lacrosse player. […]
