Swarm and Mammoth Square Off to Open 2016 NLL Season

January 1, 2016

The Colorado Mammoth host the Georgia Swarm tonight at 7:30 p.m. MT to kick off the 2016 NLL season. Both teams made some changes during the offseason, so it will be interesting to see how things play out. The Mammoth’s two biggest offseason acquisitions came from the Swarm. Star forward Callum Crawford adds depth and experience to an already-strong offensive unit that includes 90-point men John Grant Jr. and Adam…

NLL Pre Season Previews: Colorado Mammoth

November 13, 2015

As the Colorado Mammoth get set for the 2016 season, their focus will be building upon the success they had in the second half of the 2015 season, going 6-3 in their last nine to improve to a 9-9 overall record and second place in the NLL West Division. The Mammoth weren’t able to do much building via this year’s draft—they took only three players and didn’t start selecting until…


2015 NLL Draft Preview: Colorado Mammoth

September 23, 2015

In what is expected to be one of the most talented drafts in NLL history, the Colorado Mammoth are looking like one team that won’t be doing much—they don’t pick until the fourth round and have just three selections overall. Perhaps because of this, the Mammoth front office has made some significant moves in the free agent market. They acquired forward Callum Crawford on Aug. 19, giving them what might be one…


NLL Rookie of the Year Candidates: Who Will They Be?

June 23, 2015

Although the Rookie of the Year nominees won’t be revealed until tomorrow, we can still take an educated guess at to who the candidates will be. Third pick overall Miles Thompson had a great rookie season for the Minnesota Swarm with 27 goals and 62 points. Thompson was second on the Swarm in both categories and 28th overall in the NLL. His strong rookie campaign bodes well for his ability…

June 8, 2015

  The Edmonton Rush won the Champion’s Cup this weekend, their first title in their 10-year history. And so ends the 2015 NLL season. So let’s now have a look back at the season that was, and some of the highlights along the way. The season got off to an unexpected start in the first two weeks of the schedule when the three-time defending champion Rochester Knighthawks lost two straight,…


NLL Season Recap: Colorado Mammoth

May 14, 2015

After finishing in second place in the NLL West Division the Colorado Mammoth’s season came to an end last weekend with an 11-6 loss to the Calgary Roughnecks in the first round of the playoffs. Following two years where the Mammoth finished below .500, their 9-9 record was certainly an improvement, but the early exit from the postseason has to be considered disappointing. Colorado got off to a torrid start,…

May 9, 2015

The Calgary Roughnecks (7-11) travel to Denver on Saturday night to face the Colorado Mammoth (9-9) in the first round of the 2015 NLL playoffs. The two teams faced each other three times during the regular season, with the Mammoth winning twice.

Rush Host Mammoth in 2nd Game of Weekend Series

February 15, 2015

After earning an 11-7 victory on Friday night in Colorado, the Edmonton Rush host the Mammoth on Sunday in the second game of their weekend series. Following Edmonton’s Friday win, they are now tied with Colorado for first place in the West Division, both at 3-2, so this game is of particular importance to both teams. On Friday the two teams had a see-saw battle in the first half with…


How Does Alexis Buque Fit in the Colorado Mammoth Picture?

October 6, 2014

The Colorado Mammoth selected goaltender Alexis Buque with their third pick, 17th overall. Buque will be fighting for a spot on the roster against veteran Tye Belanger and Rookie of the Year candidate Dillon Ward. The starting job between the pipes for the Mammoth is obviously Ward’s to lose, leaving Belanger and Buque to battle for the backup role. Belanger’s position in the role is currently vulnerable. He started out…
