Chaos LC Acquires Chris Cloutier, Wes Berg in Separate Trades


At the end of the same week as the Premier Lacrosse League College Draft, Chaos LC head coach Andy Towers is not done shaping his roster.

In a move announced by the league Friday evening, Chaos LC acquired attackman Chris Cloutier from Atlas LC in exchange for a third round pick in the 2022 PLL College Draft.

Cloutier, a Canadian, had seven points during the PLL Championship Series in Utah this summer. While at North Carolina, Cloutier was named to the All-ACC team and was a USILA third team All-American.

In a separate trade, Towers traded goalie Dillon Ward to Waterdogs LC for Wes Berg and a first round pick in the 2022 College Draft. Ty Xanders of Inside Lacrosse reported the transaction, and the league later confirmed.

Ward, one of the top goalies in professional lacrosse, backed up Blaze Riorden during the Championship Series. Towers had an embarrassment of riches at the position last year with the duo of Riorden and Ward, creating an opportunity to deal from a position of strength.

Bringing in Berg — who, like Cloutier, is an attackman — certainly shores up the offensive end for the Chaos. Berg had one goal and four assists this past summer and will now suit up for his third team in three years in the PLL. (He spent the 2019 season with Redwoods LC.)
