Thompson named Rookie of the Year Finalist

The National Lacrosse League has announced three finalists for the 2015 NLL Rookie of the Year Award. The Edmonton Rush's Ben McIntosh, Colorado Mammoth's Jeremy Noble and Georgia Swarm's Miles Thompson were voted as the top trio of players from this year's rookie class.

Thompson finished second among all rookies in goals (27), assists (35) and points (62) plus tied for second with 69 loose balls. Thompson had three or more points in 13 of his 18 games played, scored at least one goal in 15 games including four hat tricks and had two-plus assists in 11 games. From the Onondaga Nation, Thompson played collegiately at University at Albany, where he was the co-recipient of the 2014 Tewaaraton Award with his brother. The 24-year-old, the third-overall selection of the 2014 NLL Draft, was the NLL Rookie of the Month in February.

The 2015 NLL Season Awards are determined by a vote of the league's Board of Governors, General Managers and Head Coaches at the end of the regular season. The winners will be announced at the NLL Season Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, Sept. 29 in Toronto, Ont.
