It was a tough weekend for the Riggers at home, as they lost a pair by a total of three goals. Calgary is right back at it Saturday as they finish off a home-and-home with the Toronto Rock.
Despite the 2-5 start to this season, there have been some great numbers being put up by the guys. Let’s take a look at some.
The Roughnecks are still plus three in the goal differential category. A sign of big wins and tight losses so far.
Tyler Pace needs three goals to hit 100 in his NLL career. He has 10 so far this season.
Jeff Cornwall is sixth in the NLL with 14 caused turnovers. His career high was 29 back in 2014 with the Edmonton Rush. He is on pace to pass that high in his 12th season.
Rigger captain Jesse King has 32 assists which is tied for third most in the NLL. He is on pace for 82 assists which would shatter his career high of 66 set in 2022.
Christian Del Bianco is once again the leader in assists by a goalie with six. The next closest goaltender had four. CDB had three in the Riggers two games this weekend.
