THE OTHER BENCH: TORONTO ROCK
A quick scouting report for the Calgary Roughnecks next opponent

By Bryce Forbes | Published: 2/13/2013 at 9:04:07 PM



Technically, Nick Rose is a former Calgary Roughnecks goaltender, but fans didn’t see much of him in Cowtown. 

He was acquired late in 2011 during the Boston Blazers Dispersal Draft, dressed for a grand-total of five games, and saw two relief appearances for 32 minutes.

However, general manager Mike Board was dealing from a position of strength when he sent the netminder out east to Toronto in the middle of last season. With Mike Poulin entering his prime and soon-to-be winner of NLL Goaltender of the Year, and Frankie Scigliano showing promise as a quality backup and potential starter down the road, Rose was the simply the victim of a number crunch. 

The Rock, on the other hand, needed a new number one netminder, and were willing to send a 2014 first round pick for Rose.

It’s a trade that could benefit both team in the long run.

With the Rock, Rose has developed as one of the top netminders in the league. He leads the league in wins with 5, and saves with 287. He’s also second in GAA with 10.12, one of the benefits of playing behind a strong team defence.

According to the numbers, Rose will be the toughest goaltender the Roughnecks have faced so far this year.

PLAYERS TO WATCH:
1. Garrett Billings – The 27-year-old doesn’t have many comparables in the league. Very few people dish the ball off better than Billings and it shows in his point totals. Last year, he broke the NLL record with 82 assists in one game, while finishing just a hair from the NLL record for points with 114. In one game particular, he got a point on all 15 Toronto Rock goals, another NLL record.  

2. Colin Doyle – The man has his name all over the NLL record book, and shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. The 35-year-old is second in assists and third in points. He led both teams with five assists in the first matchup earlier this season. 

3. Kasey Beirnes – He’s never been the face of the Rock offence during his long career, but he’s been a consistent 40-point guy from the right side. He became the spark plug against the Roughnecks the first time around, pocketing the game winning and insurance goals in the Rock win.
