Edge Name 2019 - 2020 Protected Player List

St. John's, NL – The St. John's Edge of the National Basketball League of Canada are pleased to announce that Kyle Johnson, Desmond Lee, Jarryn Skeete, Shaquille Keith, Murphy Burnatowski, Russell Byrd and Junior Cadougan have been named to the 2019-2020 protected player list by the Edge.

The National Basketball League of Canada's protected list allows teams to retain the rights of players who have participated in the 2018-2019 NBL Canada season and retains the rights to those players throughout the 2019-2020 season.

After August 15th, 2019, a competing team may make an offer for a protected player if they remain unsigned. The team who holds that player's rights has 48 hours to either match or surpass the offer, in which a player would then remain with his protected club. The club has a right to decline to match the protected players offer as well.  In these cases, that player would join the new contracted team.  Player's rights are held until the final day of the NBL Canada's regular season.

Edge Season Tickets are now available and can be purchased in person at the Mile One Centre box office, by phone at, 709-576-7657 or online at www.mileonecentre.com.  Group rates are available and can be obtained by contacting Devon O'Grady at Devon@sjedge.ca.
