Patrick Merrill (b. February 22, 1979 in Montreal, Quebec) is a lacrosse player for the Toronto Rock in the National Lacrosse League and formerly of the Toronto Nationals in Major League Lacrosse.

Professional career[edit]

Merrill was a first round draft choice of the Toronto Rock in 2002,[1] and after four seasons with the Rock, was chosen first overall by the Boston Blazers in the 2008 expansion draft.[2] However, following the cancellation and subsequent reinstatement of the 2008 season, the Blazers, along with the Arizona Sting, announced that they would not participate in the 2008 season.[3] A dispersal draft was held, and Merrill was chosen second overall by the Titans.[4]

Merrill's brother Brodie Merrill also plays in the NLL for the Philadelphia Wings.
