Garrett Billings of the Toronto Rock and Jordan MacIntosh of the Minnesota Swarm are the National Lacrosse League’s Player and Rookie of the Month, respectively, for April.
Billings scored nine goals, added 19 assists and picked up 16 loose balls as the Rock went 3-1 during the month to enter the postseason as East Division champions.
Billings closed the regular season with a season-high five goals and three assists in the Rock’s 12-11 win over Edmonton on April 28. Billings finished the 2012 regular season with 82 assists to set the league’s new single season record.
Also, his total of 114 points broke current Toronto captain Colin Doyle’s team record and tied for the third-highest single-season total in league history. Billings shared Player of the Month honors for March with Grant and finished as runner-up to him for the league’s Most Valuable Player.
The monthly player award winners are selected by a vote of the league’s general managers and head coaches.
