"John and Gavin are coming off tremendous seasons, and we expect nothing less from them again this coming year," said Mammoth president & general manager Steve Govett.
Grant set a new NLL single-season points record (116) in 2012 en route to winning his second career MVP award. Prout, meanwhile, mustered 83 points despite missing the team's final two regular-season games. It was his highest point total since 2008.
Prout, 34, is the team's all-time leading scorer, while Grant, 37, sits just seven career points shy of 1,100. Both players are signed to long-term contracts that include the franchise designation as part of their deals.
