Lochlan “The Veale Deal” Veale. 0 games of AFL.

The Dogs traded pick 6 to Hawthorn for him and he was delisted after 1 season with the Dogs.

Footscray only gave up pick 6 for him so Hawthorn would make Jade Rawlings walk, allowing the dogs to take him in the PSD instead of trading him to his preferred destination of North.
