Burrard nominated for new teammate award

The National Lacrosse League has announced three finalists for the 2015 NLL Teammate of the Year Award,

The National Lacrosse League has announced three finalists for the 2015 NLL Teammate of the Year Award, and Edmonton Rush forward Jarrett Davis, who is also a key player with the Maple Ridge Burrards, is among them.

He will be up against Vancouver Stealth forward Joel McCready and Toronto Rock forward Josh Sanderson. All were voted by NLL players as the league’s best teammates in 2015.

Davis finished fifth on the Rush in scoring with 46 points (13 goals, 33 assists) while adding career-highs in loose balls (61) and caused turnovers (19) in 17 games played. The fifth-year pro helped Edmonton to a first-place finish in the West Division as the franchise eventually went on to win its first Champion’s Cup.

New for the 2015 season, the award was created to honor players who demonstrate exemplary teamwork and leadership qualities during the course of the regular season. The award recognizes the “ideal teammate” who exemplifies selfless play along with commitment and dedication to their team. The best candidates are those who lead by positive example through on-floor performance, motivation of team members, and dedication to community activities and charitable causes.

NLL players voted one teammate from their respective teams into the pool of nine nominees, which was then voted on by players league-wide to determine the three finalists.

The Burrards had two other nominees in goaltender Frankie Scigliano of the Calgary Roughnecks, and Tyler Codron of the Colorado Mammoth.

The Teammate of the Year award is determined by voting among NLL players. The winner will be announced at the NLL Season Awards Ceremony on Sept. 29 in Toronto.
