It was a tough 13-10 loss for the Roughnecks this past weekend in Colorado.
The Riggers find themselves in the midst of yet another bye-week but following this week will play nine games over the next eight weeks. It starts with a double header Feb. 2 and Feb. 3 against the New York Riptide and Toronto Rock TICKETS.
The Roughnecks hit a couple of big milestones last weekend with Jesse King hitting 400 points and Thomas Hoggarth getting to 100 career goals. Let’s take a look at some of the other interesting numbers this week:
Shane Simpson leads all defensive players in the NLL with seven goals in transition. He’s on pace to beat his career high 18 goals from last season.
Jesse King has 28 assists in five games this season. He sits second in the league in assists despite being one of only two players in the top 10 in scoring that has only played five games.
Thomas Hoggarth is tied for the league lead in short handed goals. Two of his six goals this season have come a man down.
Tyler Pace needs five goals to reach 100 in his career. He has eight so far this season.
Josh Currier needs seven points to hit 250 in his NLL career. He has 11 in five games this season.
