The season may just be starting but there are plenty of exciting numbers to look at.
The Riggers head to Rochester to take on the Knighthawks Saturday at 5 p.m. MT (TSN+).
There are a few players already close to setting new team, league and personal records that could be broken throughout the NLL season.
CDB enters the season with the all-time best save percentage in team history. Last year his .810% was second best in the NLL guiding him to be league MVP.
CDB is also eight wins away from being the all-time winningest goalie in franchise history. Del Bianco has 45 career wins with the Riggers and sits seven away from tying Mike Poulin’s 52 wins, and eight away from setting the record.
Del Bianco’s 10.62 career goals against average is tops in ’Necks history. Last season he averaged 9.28 goals-against per game which was third b
Tyler Pace needs 13 goals to hit 100 in his NLL career. Pace is entering his sixth season, all with the Roughnecks, and had 24 goals in 14 games last year.
Josh Currier is 18 points away from 250 in his NLL career. He has 115 goals and 117 assists in 91 games played and had 45 points in 14 games in his first season with the Roughnecks last year.
Zach Currier is 28 loose balls away from 1,000 in his career. The back-to-back Transition Player of the Year averaged 12.6 loosies a game last season so if he continues that pace he could hit the mark early – in Game 3 or sooner.
One last CDB number! Del Bianco is 899 minutes played away from being the Roughnecks all-time record holder. He sits at 4,412 minutes and is chasing down Poulin who played 5,311 minutes with the team.
