For the second consecutive season, Minnesota was home to the NLL’s Transition Player of the Year. In 2012, Andrew Suitor claimed the honor and 2013 was Jordan MacIntosh’s breakout season in which he tallied a career-high 55 points (27g, 28a). The Swarm had a 5-1 record on the year when MacIntosh scored a least five points.
Offensive ability notwithstanding, MacIntosh is so valuable to the Swarm because he can impact the game in a variety of ways. The RIT product was second in the NLL in loose balls in 2013 with 197 and fourth in faceoffs won (241).
“Some of the best players in the league are transition guys,” MacIntosh said in a Q&A with mnswarm.com. “I like the kinds of players that can do it all as you mentioned earlier. Players that can not only score, but collect loose balls, win faceoffs, make a big defensive stop.”
MacIntosh is certainly a do-it-all player as he won an NLL-high six Transition Player of the Week Awards in 2013 before being named Transition Player of the Year.
