Who really is the ‘Great Dane – or Dhane?’

We’ll soon find out.

Two of the best forwards in the league will go head-to-head during the 2019 NLL Finals, as Riggers Dane Dobbie and Bandit Dhane Smith square off for Game 1 on May 18 in Buffalo. Both men led scoring on their squads during the 2019 campaign, with Dobbie posting a career-high 115 regular season points – enough to capture the 2019 NLL scoring title – and Smith posting 102, the fifth-highest in the league.

During this post-season, Dobbie has notched five goals and 13 points to place him second in NLL playoff scoring. Smith is not far behind at third (3g, 9a).
