We knew it was coming, and it still might be. But really, Frankie Scigliano is no one’s surprise anymore.
The goalie out of Coquitlam, B.C., is one of the game’s best, whether he’s winning 2014 Rookie of the Year honors for Maple Ridge in the Western Lacrosse Association, or winning the starting National Lacrosse League job with the Calgary Roughnecks.
Part of what makes Scigliano such a solid keeper is his size. At 6-foot-4 and 290 pounds, he takes up space. But the bigger part of what makes Scigs such a great keeper is his athleticism and mental approach. The big man is quick on his feet, allowing him to switch back to cover angles. That’s given the kid more than a few highlight-reel saves and if you’ve played the game, you know how much a big save can fire you up as a runner. Even more, Scigliano’s lacrosse IQ keeps him in touch with what’s going on in front of him, helping him read situations as they unfold so he can keep himself in the right position.
