The Colorado Mammoth have acquired forward Tyler Digby from the New York Riptide in exchange for a second-round selection in the 2020 NLL Entry Draft (via Toronto, via Rochester) and a second-round selection in the 2021 NLL Entry Draft.
“We’re excited to add a player like Tyler Digby – We’ve really liked his game for quite some time now,” Mammoth Assistant General Manager Brad Self shared Thursday. “He’s a big guy and has a phenomenal lacrosse IQ who’s capable of scoring and creating space for his teammates – He’ll be a great addition to the Mammoth and we’re happy to have added him to the team.”
In 10 games with the Riptide this season, the New Westminster, BC native has posted 36 points (14g, 22a) and 15 penalty minutes while adding 30 loose balls and two caused turnovers.
Drafted by the Vancouver Warriors in the third round of the 2013 NLL Entry Draft, 20th overall, the 28-year-old has spent time in Vancouver, Calgary, New England, and most recently New York, after being selected by the Riptide in the ninth round of the 2019 NLL Expansion Draft, where he led the team in goals, assists and points during the 2019-20 campaign before joining the Mammoth.
The 6-3, 277-lb. forward has logged 165 goals and 214 assists to give the seven-year veteran 379 points in 112 career games. In six playoff appearances, Digby has logged 16 points (10g, 6a) two penalty minutes and 15 loose balls, including a three-game, nine-point (8g, 1a) stretch in 2016 with Calgary.
Digby is expected to make his debut with the Mammoth Saturday, Feb. 29 as Colorado hosts the Philadelphia Wings at Pepsi Center.
