It was a split for the Roughnecks with Saskatchewan last weekend as both teams stayed in the postseason hunt. There are many scenarios that could still see the Riggers make the playoffs but almost all of them start with winning both of their remaining games.

Jesse King hit 450 points this weekend, Tyler Pace got to 300, and Thomas Hoggarth played in his 100th career NLL game.

Let’s take a look at the numbers as we head towards a huge battle with Buffalo.



Jesse King sits at 93 points with two games to go. His career-high is 100 which he set last year and he is on pace to break that as he is projected to hit 104. He currently sits 10th in the NLL.



Roughnecks forward Tyler Pace has set a career-high in points and goals with two games to go. Pace has 31 goals, beating his previous record of 26, and his 77 points is already more than the 74 he scored last season.



Zach Currier continues to be a vacuum with 168 loose balls this year. That’s second in the league behind face-off guy Jake Withers. He’s on pace for another season with 190-plus loose balls. Currier is also now the all-time record holder for loose balls by a Roughneck. He has 1,140 and passed Jeff Shattler (1,106) a couple of weeks ago.



Harrison Matsuoka has set career highs in points and goals this year. He has hit four goals and seven points including some huge goals early in games. Matsuoka has taken a big step for the ’Necks this season.



Shane Simpson can fly, we all know that, and he is dominating offensively from the back-end. He is by far the most prolific goal scorer among defenders with 16 goals this season. He is three-goals away from beating his single-season high of 18 set last year.
