SOMETHING OTHER ABOUTORTHE NLL

WHAT IS THE NLL?

The National Lacrosse League (NLL) played its inaugural game in January of 1987, and was first known as the Eagle Pro Box Lacrosse League. In 1988, the name was changed to the Major Indoor Lacrosse League (MILL). The MILL became the NLL following the 1997 season. All of the statistics and records in this book encompass all eighteen seasons of the league’s existence. Therefore, a League Record is one that covers all three names and the league’s entire eighteenseason history. The National Lacrosse League plays indoor lacrosse. The game is a hybrid, combining parts of box lacrosse (played inside the confines of an ice hockey rink on a turf surface or concrete surface, more prevalent in Canada) with field lacrosse (played on outdoor field, either on grass or turf, more prevalent in the United States). Indoor lacrosse was designed to combine the most exciting elements of box and field lacrosse. The game is played inside the confines of an ice hockey rink, with glass and rink boards intact. The playing surface is an artificial turf, which is placed directly over the arena’s ice surface. Each team plays with five runners and a goaltender. The combination of the playing area, and the physical play leads many fans to describe indoor lacrosse “as being like hockey, on foot, with a lot more scoring”. Twenty-five goals are scored in the average NLL game. Indoor lacrosse is similar to basketball in terms of its frequent scoring, use of a shot-clock (30 seconds), and use of the over-and back-rule. When teams are on offense, they often spread the floor and pass the ball around in a manner similar to that of basketball. The NLL game is also played in four quarters, each 15 minutes in length. Ties are settled in a five minute sudden-death overtime period. If a goal is not scored in the first overtime, the teams

will continue to play five-minute overtime periods until a goal is scored. More than ninety percent of overtime games are settled in the first overtime period. There are no ties or points awarded for an “overtime loss” in the NLL. The standings and team records are strictly Wins-Losses. Each team plays a sixteen-game regular season schedule, starting in January and ending in April. The NLL schedule is structured in a similar fashion to that of the National Football League. All games are played on the weekends. The weekends of the schedule are numbered, 1-16. For example, Week #1 refers to all of the games being played on the weekend of January 1st-2nd, 2005. As the League has grown, so has the schedule. Here is a look at schedule growth in recent League history: 1996

The Champion’s Cup Playoffs are single-game elimination.

THE PLAYERS OF THE NLL

Each team consists of a 23-man roster. On game day, the head coach chooses eighteen of the twenty-three players to play in the game. The other six are scratched from the lineup, similar to hockey. Of the 18 players, 16 are runners (forwards or defensemen) and two are goaltenders. Each team has five runners and a goaltender on the floor during the game. Of the five runners, teams traditionally use three forwards and two defensemen. In the waning moments of the game, the team trailing will often opt to pull the goaltender for an extra runner.

ABOUT THE NLL

2010

Minor and major penalties during the game lead to power plays of two minutes and five minutes, respectively.

A 30-second shot clock is used to keep the action moving. The clock resets after a shot on goal, or a change of possession. The National Lacrosse League features the best lacrosse talent in the world. Approximately 75% of the League’s players are from Canada. The majority of these players grew up playing box lacrosse in Canada’s Junior Lacrosse program. Box lacrosse is played inside the confines of an ice hockey rink, with the glass and boards intact. The playing surface is concrete. In cities and towns across Canada, box lacrosse is a popular sport to play in the spring and summertime months, when the ice is removed from the local hockey rink. Many of the League’s Canadian players grew up playing ice hockey during the fall and winter months, and then played box lacrosse at their hometown rinks during the spring and summer months. There are two “hotbed” areas that produce the greatest concentration of lacrosse talent in Canada. The province of Ontario, especially within 75 miles/125 kilometers radius of the city of Toronto. Approximately one half of the League’s players are from this region. The other is in the province of British Columbia, within a radius of 50 miles/75 kilometers to the city of Vancouver. Approximately one-fourth of the League’s players are from this region. NLL expansion into Calgary has led to a surge in youth participation in the province of Alberta and other areas of Western Canada. Media members and team media relations officers will often refer to a Canadian player’s junior lacrosse experience prior to joining the NLL. The following is a partial list of teams in the Ontario Lacrosse Association and British Columbia Junior Lacrosse League. The two leagues produce a considerable share of the league’s players. 90

The League also features the top college lacrosse talent in the United States. The “hotbeds” of US lacrosse talent are primarily in the Northeast. The Baltimore-Washington DC region, Long Island, and upstate New York are the primary areas. The game of lacrosse is also emerging at the scholastic level in regions across the country, including the San Francisco Bay Area, Denver, St. Louis, and Texas. The players who have excelled in the traditional outdoor or field lacrosse setting take their skills and converting them to the indoor game. The major adjustments an outdoor player makes when going to the indoor game are: A smaller goal to shoot on. The outdoor goal is six feet high and six feet wide. The indoor goal is four feet high and four feet and nine inches wide. The goalies of the indoor game also wear more equipment, taking away more of the shooting space than an outdoor goalie. A faster moving game. With a smaller playing surface and 30-second shot clock, the pace of the NLL game is faster than the pace of field lacrosse. The League also has a prominent contingent of Native American players. These players are primarily from the Six Nations of Ontario, and from several tribes in Western and Central parts of upstate New York. Native American players make up approximately six percent of the player pool in the NLL. The great majority of the League’s players have full-time jobs during the week. Many of the League’s fans will tell you they enjoy a closeness to the players because they have everyday jobs like they do. Some of the teams use this bond as part of their marketing appeal to the fans.

For example, if Team A scores one goal during a major penalty, it is credited with two advantages. • If a club is on a power play for any length of time, it is considered to have had an advantage.

NLL RULES

2010

ROSTERS – 23-man roster, each team dresses 18 players for games (16 runners and two goalies). A team shall be composed of six (6) players on the floor, who are under contract to the club they represent.

TIME FORMAT – Four 15-minute quarters; two minutes between quarters; 12 minute halftime. TIME OUTS – Each team may take two 45-second timeouts per half. SUDDEN-DEATH OVERTIME – Games ending regulation play with a tie score are decided by sudden death overtime period five minutes in length. Play continues until a goal is scored. More than one overtime period is played if necessary. 10-SECOND VIOLATION – Occurs when team on offense fails to advance the ball past midfield within 10 seconds after taking possession at their end. FACE-OFFS – To determine possessions at the start of each quarter and after every goal, two players face their sticks at midfield with a referee placing the ball between the heads of the sticks. SHOT CLOCK – A 30-second clock begins (counting down) when a team assumes possession of the ball. The offensive team must put a shot on goal during that time or they will lose possession. If they do shoot on goal (without scoring) and recover possession of the ball (via rebound/ loose ball recovery), the clock is reset for a new 30 seconds. MINOR PENALTIES – On two-minute personal fouls, the penalized player is released from the penalty box if a goal is scored before the expiration of the penalty. MAJOR PENALTIES – On five-minute major personal fouls, the penalized player stays in the box for the duration of the penalty, though the offending team returns to full strength if two goals are scored against them during the five minutes. When a second major penalty is imposed on the same player in a game, an automatic game misconduct penalty shall be imposed. 92

USE OF PENALTY SHOT – Since a team cannot be more than two men down at a time, if a third penalty is called, the official will award a penalty shot to the unpenalized team. EJECTION FROM GAME – Players can be ejected from a game for several reasons including being the third man participating in an altercation in which there is a penalty assessed or accumulating two major penalties in one game. SLOW WHISTLE (DELAYED PENALTY) – If a defending player commits a personal or major penalty against an opponent in possession of the ball where there is offensive momentum and the opponent doesn’t lose possession, the official raises his hand and does not blow the whistle until a shot is taken, the 30-second shot clock expires, a goal is scored or possession is lost. COINCIDENTAL PENALTIES – When each team is given the same amount of penalty time arising out of the same incident, the offending players shall not be released until the expiration of the penalty. Teams do not lose floor strength, and the ball is awarded to the team who was in possession prior to the fouls. FIELD & GOALS – Indoor lacrosse is played on a hockey rink covered by an artificial turf playing surface, which is usually referred to as the floor or the carpet (as opposed to the field). There must be boards around the sides of a minimum height of 3’ high. Dimensions are 200’ x 85’ but may be altered. Goals are 4’ (high) x 4’9” (wide). The circle around the goal known as the crease is 9’3” in diameter. An offensive player is not allowed to intentionally step into the crease area. The large box around the crease is the offensive/ defensive zone. Any penalty called against a defender in this area by an official is accompanied by a raised hand followed by a whistle blown only after the offensive scoring opportunity has ended.

by the total number of shorthanded situations.

GAME PLAYED - A player receives credit for playing in a game if: 1.) he steps on the turf during time played or; 2.) serves any penalty.

SAVE PERCENTAGE - Subtract goals allowed (GA) from shots against (SA) to determine saves. Then divide saves by shotsagainst.

GAME-WINNING GOAL - After the final score has been determined, the goal which leaves the winning Club one goal ahead of its opponent is the game-winning goal (example: if Team A beats Team B 8-3, the player scoring the fourth goal for Team A receives credit for the game-winning goal).

SHOOTING PERCENTAGE - Divide the number of goals scored by the number of shots taken.

GAME-TYING GOAL - The final goal in a tie game. GOAL - A goal is awarded to the last player on the scoring Club to touch the ball prior to the ball entering the net. GOALS-AGAINST AVERAGE - Multiply goals allowed (GA) by 60 and divide by minutes played (MINS). GOALTENDER OF RECORD - A goaltender receives a win, tie or loss if he is on the turf when either the game-winning or gametying goal is scored. PENALTY-KILLING PCT. - Subtract total number of power-play goals allowed from total number of shorthanded situations to get total number of power-plays killed. Divide the total number of power-plays killed

POWER-PLAY PERCENTAGE - Total number of power-play goals divided by total number of power-play opportunities.

SHORT-HANDED GOAL - A goal scored by a Club while it is at a manpower disadvantage. The same cases apply for shorthand as for power-play goals, but in the opposite manner. SHOT ON GOAL - If a player shoots the ball with the intention of scoring and if that shot would have gone in the net had the goaltender not stopped it, the shot is recorded as a “shot on goal”. SHUTOUT - If two goaltenders combine for a shutout, neither receives credit for the shutout. Instead it is recorded as a Club shutout. TENTHS OF A SECOND - If a penalty or goal occurs in the last minute, the time is rounded off to the previous second (ex: if a penalty is called with 12.4 seconds left in a period, the time is indicated as 19:47 and not 19:48.­­

XCEL ENERGY CENTER

Regarded as one of America’s most intimate arenas, Xcel Energy Center is a one-of-a-kind multi-purpose sports and entertainment facility located in the heart of downtown Saint Paul, adjacent to the Saint Paul RiverCentre complex and The Legendary Roy Wilkins Auditorium. Situated on a six-acre site and encompassing 650,000 square feet, Xcel Energy Center is home to the National Hockey League’s Minnesota Wild, the National Lacrosse League’s Minnesota Swarm, and more than 150 spectacular entertainment events annually. Xcel Energy Center first opened its doors on September 29, 2000, when the expansion Minnesota Wild defeated the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim 3-1. Since its victorious beginnings, the hockey club has sold out every game ever played at the arena. With four separate concourses on four seating levels, plus the Al Shaver Press Box on the fifth level, Xcel Energy Center’s open concourses are fan friendly, measuring as much as 70 feet in width providing an open view of the ice. The venue seats 18,064 for hockey games, and each of its four levels were strategically positioned to create great sightlines. There are 74 executive suites; 12 on the main concourse and 62 on the Club Cambria Executive Suite Level. One level above is the Treasure Island Resort & Casino Club Level, which boasts approximately 3,000 luxury seats, an exclusive merchandise store, and upscale food and beverage options anchored by Headwaters, a full-service bar and restaurant. Xcel Energy Center has been recognized as one of the best venues worldwide for sporting events, concerts and family shows. ESPN The Magazine has twice ranked the eight-year-old venue No. 1 for “Best Stadium Experience”(2003, 2007). Xcel Energy Center was named “Best NHL Arena” by SportsBusiness Journal/ SportsBusiness Daily in its 2006 Reader Survey and recognized for the “Best Fan Experience” by Forbes magazine in its 2006 “Business of Hockey” report. Sports Illustrated named the arena its “top choice” among NHL buildings in its 2006 NHL Preview issue. In addition to hockey, Xcel Energy Center has been nominated six times (2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007) for “Arena of the Year” by leading concert-industry publication Pollstar magazine.

Xcel Energy Center is in the midst of an incredible year. In addition to hosting the 2008 U.S. Figure Skating Championships this past January, the arena welcomed the 2008 Republican National Convention from Sep. 1-4. Other major events previously hosted by the facility include the 2004 NHL All-Star Weekend, 2004 International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Cup of Hockey, 2006 U.S. Gymnastics National Championships and the 2002 NCAA Men’s Frozen Four, which will return in 2011. Each spring, Xcel Energy Center becomes Minnesota’s epicenter of activity, hosting five straight weeks of athletic tournaments. Two of the most storied events include the Minnesota State High School League Boys’ Hockey Tournament and the Western Collegiate Hockey Association Red Baron Final Five. Attendance marks are routinely broken as hockey-crazed fans clamor for tickets to these destination events each year. The first-ever concert at Xcel Energy Center featured the Barenaked Ladies and The Corrs on Sept. 30, 2000. To date, some of the world’s most legendary performers have performed at Xcel Energy Center, including the Police, the Rolling Stones, Barbra Streisand, Paul McCartney, Pavarotti, Elton John, Billy Joel, Rod Stewart, Tim McGraw & Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney, Neil Diamond, Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, Bon Jovi, Simon & Garfunkel, and three consecutive sold-out shows by hometown-favorite, Prince. In addition to the great concerts and sporting events, many incredible family shows pass through Xcel Energy Center each year, including favorites like the World’s Toughest Rodeo, Smucker’s Stars on Ice, Disney Live! and Disney On Ice. Xcel Energy Center is owned by the City of Saint Paul and managed by the Saint Paul Arena Company, an affiliate of Minnesota Sports & Entertainment. For more information, visit xcelenergycenter.com.
