Tracey Kelusky (born September 9, 1975) is a lacrosse player for the Philadelphia Wings in the National Lacrosse League and the Peterborough Lakers of the Major Series Lacrosse. Kelusky was formerly the captain of the Calgary Roughnecks, and led them to NLL championships in 2004 and 2009.

College career[edit]

Tracey played college lacrosse at the University of Hartford, making his mark in the NCAA record books by scoring 59 goals in 14 games during the 2000 season.

Professional career[edit]

Kelusky joined the NLL in the 2000-2001 season with the Columbus Landsharks and was named the NLL Rookie of the Year. In the 2001-2002 season, he played for the expansion franchise Montreal Express. The Roughnecks picked up Kelusky first overall in the dispersal draft after the Express franchise folded in 2002.

In the 2005 National Lacrosse League All-Star Game, Kelusky won the MVP in front of a home crowd at the Pengrowth Saddledome. During the 2009 NLL season, he was named a reserve to the All-Star game.[1]

In December 2013, Kelusky was acquired by the Philadelphia Wings as a free agent.
