Following two changes in goal last week, the Calgary Roughnecks have made a goalie change to their roster.

Matt King was pulled for Chris Levis after the Rush jumped to a 4-1 lead, but returned to the game in the fourth quarter as the Roughnecks trailed 12-10.

Levis, who allowed six goals on 23 shots in his only start so far this season, was traded to the Colorado Mammoth on Wednesday for a second-round draft pick in 2011.

In turn, the Roughnecks exchanged a first-round pick to the Boston Blazers for goalie Mike Poulin.

"First of all, we want to thank Chris for what he brought to our team," Roughnecks head coach Dave Pym said. "He's going to a place where maybe it proves to be a better place for him and I did have the opportunity to speak with Mike (Wednesday) afternoon and I know that Mike and Matt will forge a great working relationship that will bring out the best in each of them and our team.

"We really look forward to getting Mike into the fold here this weekend."

Poulin, who previously backed up Blazers starter Anthony Cosmo, has played 71 minutes over two games this season and was tagged with a loss in both. He has allowed 16 goals on 63 shots for a GAA of 13.54 and a .746 save percentage.

WEEKLY AWARDS: A pair of Rush players where awarded by the NLL for their efforts, with Brodie Merrill named the Transition Player of the Week and Brett Mydske taking Rookie of the Week honours.

Merrill had 18 loose balls last week and also went five-for-seven on faceoffs.

Mydske, a third-round draft pick, found the scoreboard for the first time in the NLL with a pair of unassisted goals against Calgary as well as collected seven loose balls.
