DENVER – The Colorado Mammoth of the National Lacrosse League (NLL) announced today that the organization has signed Carson Moyer to a one-year contract deal, effective during the upcoming 2024-2025 campaign.

Initially selected by the Albany FireWolves in the second round (32nd overall) of the 2023 NLL Entry Draft, his rights were acquired by the Mammoth in December 2023 in an early-season trade.

Colorado sent defenseman Anthony Joaquim to Albany in addition to a third-round selection in the 2025 NLL Entry Draft, Colorado received Moyer and a second-round selection in the 2025 NLL Entry Draft, making him younger while improving future capital.

Second-round talent is generally not available in the NLL, let alone shopped before the prospect gets a chance to show his stuff in the box itself, so this was a big win for Colorado despite losing a solid D-man in the box. Joaquim.

He capped his collegiate career with a standout senior season, the 6-1, 180-lb. midfielder matched his career-high output with 31 points (16g, 15a), 14 ground balls and two caused turnovers in 16 appearances with Utah in 2024, ending his NCAA resume with a combined 85 points (60g, 25a), 31 ground balls and six caused turnovers in 60 games played.

Moyer scored 98 points (51g, 47a) during his final Jr. A-season with the Mimico Mountaineers (2022) and recently recorded 35 points (18g, 17a) in 18 games with the Sr. A Coburg Kodiaks (2023) last summer.

The King City, Ontario native will now get his first chance to showcase his skills in the professional spotlight at Mammoth training camp when fall arrives.

Mammoth fans can stay up to date on social media and Colorado Mammoth throughout the summer as the team continues to build its roster for the upcoming 2024-25 NLL campaign. And with the 2024 NLL Entry Draft quickly approaching this fall, there are plenty of reasons to stay tuned to the burgundy and black squad!
