The Vancouver Warriors have made some roster moves concerning the goalie position, releasing Aaron Bold and signing Nolan Clayton. 

Bold, a 14-year veteran, signed with the Warriors prior to the 2018-19 season and re-signed with the club prior to this season. Bold and Eric Penney have somewhat been splitting time over the past two seasons in Vancouver.

The Edmonton, Alberta native made 355 saves with a .767 save percentage last season and has made 50 saves this season with a .735 save percentage in the two games that he has appeared in. 

Prior to his arrival in Vancouver, Bold payed one season in New England. Before that he was with the Rush franchise for six seasons, playing in both Edmonton and Saskatchewan. Bold has also spent time in Rochester, San Jose, and Portland during his career. 

Along with releasing Bold, the Warriors have signed Nolan Clayton who was at the Warriors training camp this year. The 24-year old Hamilton, Ontario native has been playing with the Paris Riverwolves in the Arena Lacrosse League (ALL) this season, appearing in three games and 8.60 goals against average. 

This past summer he played for the Brampton Excelsiors in the MSL, appearing in 18 games and posting a 9-7 record. He made 198 saves with a .537 save percentage.
