Orlando's Vinc Named NLL Goaltender of the Year

May 12, 2010 - National Lacrosse League (NLL) - Orlando Titans News Release

ORLANDO, Fla. (May 12, 2010) -- The National Lacrosse League announced today that Matt "VNO" Vinc of the Orlando Titans has been selected as the Goaltender of the Year.

Vinc is coming off a sensational season, where he led the NLL in minutes played (902), total saves (609), saves-per-game (40.6), save percentage (.810), and regular season wins (10); while ranking third in goals against average (9.51).

His 609 saves tied his 2009 total as the third highest in NLL history. After the Titans had already clinched the East Division, Vinc sat out an April 23 game against Philadelphia - most likely costing him a shot at the all-time saves record of 644 set by Albany's Rob Blasell in 2002.

Now in his fourth season with the Titans, Vinc has seen his single season stats improve each year. Orlando finished the regular season with an 11-5 record, defeated Boston in a first-round playoff game before bowing out to Toronto in the semifinals.

In other awards, the NLL announced that Edmonton Rush transition player Brodie Merrill has won Transition Player of the Year and Toronto Rock defenseman Sandy Chapman has been named Defensive Player of the Year. The All-Pro and All-Rookie teams will be announced on Thursday.
