The National Lacrosse League announced today that Mike Poulin, the 2012 Goaltender of the Year, forward Shawn Evans and defenceman Mike Carnegie of the Calgary Roughnecks have been named to the NLL All-Pro Teams.
Poulin, the first Roughnecks netminder to receive Goaltender of the Year honours, finished the 2012 regular season with a 10-3 record to share the league lead in wins, while posting a 10.27 goals-against average and .789 save percentage.
Poulin joins Minnesota transition player Andrew Suitor, Edmonton defenceman Kyle Rubisch and forwards John Grant Jr. (Colorado), Garrett Billings (Toronto) and Dan Dawson (Philadelphia) on the first All-Pro Team.
In his first year with Calgary, Evans, an off-season acquisition from the Rochester Knighthawks, led the Roughnecks in goals (32), assists (47) and points (79) and was twice named the Offensive Player of the Week.
Carnegie, in his fifth season with the Roughnecks, recorded nine points (3g, 6a), collected 64 loose balls and had 16 forced turnovers along with 22 penalty minutes over 16 games.
Joining Evans and Carnegie on the second All-Pro Team are forwards John Tavares (Buffalo) and Cody Jamieson (Rochester), Philadelphia transition player Brodie Merrill, Edmonton goaltender Aaron Bold and Minnesota defencemen Jeff Gilbert. Carnegie and Gilbert are co-winners for the second team’s defenceman.
The awards are voted on by the league's Board of Governors, General Managers and Head Coaches.
