“We are obviously very excited with the new players coming on board, and happy to have many the core guys back from last year’s playoff team,” said Arrows Vice President and General Manager Mark Winokur. “While we were satisfied with our first season in the league, we know we have to get better. One of the key areas we’ve identified for improvement is to make sure we have greater depth and strength at every position, so that our guys can manage the heavy workloads that comes with a long season.”

“Bringing in quality guys in key areas is so important to ensuring we’re competitive throughout the entire season, but making sure these players fit into our strong and unique club culture is also a vital part of our roster composition process.”

Eight of the initial crop of Arrows signees have national team experience, with the group combining for 228 senior test caps.

de la Vega (Argentina – 12 caps)
Diana (Uruguay – 22 caps)
