The Scouting Report
Having already netted six National Lacrosse League titles, the Rock have once again rolled to the top of the East Division with one of the league's best records. Through nine games, the offence has scored 110 goals behind the crisp passes and trick shots of veterans Garrett Billings and Colin Doyle—the NLL's second- and fifth-place leaders in points, respectively. Not to be outdone, Nick Rose has established himself as one of the league's best goaltenders. He sets the pace for all goalies with six victories, and his 371 saves make opponents think twice before they try to sneak a shot or a buzzing beehive into the Rock's net.
The Toronto Rock were the first Canadian team to join the National Lacrosse League—only they did so under a different name. The Ontario Raiders were established in 1998 and spent one season as Hamilton, Ontario's home team. At that point, the franchise was sold and relocated to Toronto, where they began play as the Rock.
Immediate success followed the move. The Rock went on to win back-to-back NLL championships in 1999 and 2000. All told, the team has captured six titles and currently sits tied with the Philadelphia Wings for most championships. Much of the Rock's success unfolds before energized crowds at The Air Canada Centre, which, along with its giant loom for producing championship banners, the team shares with the Maple Leafs and Raptors.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
