Toronto – Rock Captain Colin Doyle has been named the NLL’s Overall and Offensive Player of the Week while Sandy Chapman received the Defensive Player of the Week Award.
Doyle turned in a classic performance scoring big goals at key times in Toronto’s 16-13 win over Philadelphia on Saturday night. His 9 points (3 goals and 6 assists) were a personal season high for the Rock Captain. He also had a great night on special teams scoring one powerplay goal and scoring one spectacular shorthanded marker as well.
Last year’s NLL Defender of the Year continues his strong play as one of the anchors of Toronto’s defensive unit. Chapman collected 7 loose balls and forced one turnover but also chipped in at the offensive end of the floor this week scoring once and picking up an assist in the win over the Wings.
Friday at Air Canada Centre, the Rock host Philadelphia as the two teams get together for the second week in a row. The game is at 7:30pm and can be seen live on TSN2 at 7:30pm.
