Ridge Meadows Burrards forward Ben McIntosh won NLL rookie of the month honours for January with the Edmonton Rush.

The first overall pick of the 2014 NLL Draft led all first-year players in goals (11), assists (10) and points (21) for the month. The Coquitlam native’s 11 goals rank tied for seventh among all players, while his 21 points are tied for 17th in the NLL overall.

“Ben has obviously been a great addition to our team,” said Rush GM/coach Derek Keenan. “He’s showing a lot of poise and parts to his game that may go unnoticed by some. He’s a complete player and continues to get more comfortable with his teammates and improve every game.”

McIntosh has posted at least two goals and three or more points in all four of his games played this season including an eight-point (4g, 4a) performance. The eight points tied a Rush franchise record for most points in a single game.

The NLL monthly awards are determined by a vote of the league’s general managers and head coaches.

McIntosh has three other Burrards teammates playing with Edmonton in Jarrett Davis, Mitch Bannister and Riley Loewen.

The Calgary Roughnecks also have four Burrards, including former WLA MVP Curtis Dickson, rookie of the year goaltender Frankie Scigliano, and defenders Garrett McIntosh and Patrick O’Meara

Fans can see the  Roughnecks play the Vancouver Stealth on Feb. 14 at Langley Events Centre – the same night as wrestling legend Bret Hart is there For Hart Breaker Night.

Burrards team captain Tyler Codron, Creighton Reid and Colton Porter play for Colorado.
