The Philadelphia Wings have signed nine-year veteran Cory Vitarelli. The forward comes to Philadelphia after finishing last season with the Colorado Mammoth, helping them make a NLL west divisional final appearance.
A native of Peterborough, Ontario, Vitarelli started his career with Rochester, being signed in December of 2010. The forward spent eight and a half seasons with Rochester before being traded to Colorado last season.
Last season, Vitarelli recorded 40 points (23G/17A) and chased down 51 loose balls. He has a career total of 327 points (192G/135A) and 540 loose balls. Vitarelli has also won three NLL championships with Rochester (2012,2013,2014).
Now coming to Philadelphia, Vitarelli will be a great asset as a certain offensive threat and a veteran leader. He will be joining an offensive core that features Kevin Crowley along with younger players such as Matt Rambo, and others.
