Greg Harnett


The younger Harnett brother came into this season fighting injuries but he took several steps forward and became a staple on the back end. He eventually became a decent threat in transition.

In his second season, Harnett was constantly moving on the floor and became one of the defenders you noticed every possesion in a good way. He also chipped in three goals in transistion.

DAN MACRAE


In his third season, MacRae looked way more confident on the floor as he often led the rush from the defensive end into the offensive zone. That resulted in him quadrupling his offensive output (he had one goal in his rookie season, none the next year and three this season). He was always reliable on the back end as well.

CURTIS DICKSON


After a very successful 33-goal rookie campaign in 2011, Dickson followed it up with a decent sophomore season in 2012 with 31 markers. In 2013, he took his game to a whole new level lighting the lamp a career high 42 times, good enough for 3rd in the league. Even more impressive is the fact that he collected a hat trick in 9 of the 18 contests he played. Six of Dickson's 42 goals were scored shorthanded, not an easy feat in the NLL. The 25-year-old forward has a knack for scoring big goals in big games and proved it several times this season.

DANE DOBBIE


Dobbie cemented his role as a go-to guy on the Calgary offence this season, despite missing three regular season games and being hampered by injury in the playoffs. In the same number of games as last year, he collected 22 more points, including a dozen more goals.

TRAVIS CORNWALL


During his second professional season, Cornwall - one of two Cornwall brothers in the league - began to play with the undeniable confidence some of his Calgary teammates exude and while statistically his numbers weren't better, he played with such a presence in 2013 indicating that he learned from his rookie experience with the Roughnecks in 2012 and grew as a player (Cornwall put up three goals and three assists in 12 games this season compared to 14 points in 14 games his rookie year). Often, transition players get little credit for the work they do throughout a game, but Cornwall's growing calmness on the floor is a true sign of a player who will no doubt continue to excel, while he's analyzing the play at hand and concentrating on his next move (he told me during his rookie season that he found out he was a member of the Calgary Roughnecks in the fall of 2011 during a math class). I look forward to watching Cornwall improve as a member of the Roughnecks in the coming years as he continues to be challenged by the coaching staff and his experienced teammates.
