NLL Team of The Week: Week Seven

Each week of the NLL season Lacrosse Bucket will release a Team of The Week. This week’s team is made up of six players, as usual, and includes two forwards, one transition player, two defenseman, and one goalie. 

So, without further adieu, here is the Lacrosse Bucket NLL Team of the Week for week six of the 2019-20 NLL season.

Ben McIntosh, F, Saskatchewan Rush

In Southern California on Sunday afternoon, McIntosh was simply on fire as he helped lead the Rush to a 12-9 victory over the San Diego Seals. 

McIntosh was a prime factor in Saskatchewan’s win, putting up five points (4G/1A) in the game. In addition to his offensive stats, McItosh also scooped up two loose balls in the win. 

Chase Fraser, F, Buffalo Bandits

The Buffalo Bandits walked right into Georgia on Saturday and took it to the Swarm. And third-year forward Chase Fraser was a huge part of the Bandits’ offensive explosion to help secure the win. 

Fraser ended the game with six points (3G/3A). He also scooped up six loose balls in the victory, as well. 

Trevor Baptiste, T, Philadelphia Wings

While the Wings are certainly on one of the better runs in the league right now, Trevor Baptiste has also been on a run of his own over the past few weeks, as well. And the second-year player continued his recent success this weekend. 

Baptiste went 27-31 at the faceoff dot in the Wings’ 18-10 win over the Vancouver Warriors. He also scored two goals and scooped up 21 loose balls in the win for Philly. 

Graeme Hossack, D, Halifax Thunderbirds

The Halifax Thunderbirds secured a huge win over the Colorado Mammoth on Saturday night. And as usual, veteran defenseman Graeme Hossack didn’t fail to impress. 

Hossack caused four turnovers and chased down 11 loose balls in the victory. The defenseman also scored two goals, as well. 

Brad Kri, D, Toronto Rock

The Toronto Rock defeated the Rochester Knighthawks 13-12 on Saturday in the two teams’ second consecutive meeting. And yet again, Kri was a big piece of the Toronto Rock’s victory. 

Kri caused three turnovers and caused nine loose balls. And he also went 13-25 at the faceoff dot, as well. 

Evan Kirk, G, Saskatchewan Rush

In Saskatchewan’s 12-9 road win over San Diego on Sunday, goalie Evan Kirk showed why he is such as special talent. The goalie stood tall, turning away many crucial shots from the Seals’ offense, including a few one-on-one fast break shots. 

Kirk ended the game with 43 saves off of 52 shots on goal.
