Looking Back: Tim Edwards Becomes Franchise’s All-Time Faceoff Wins Leader

DENVER – His nickname may be “Timmy Secrets” in the locker room as one of the quieter, more composed members of the Colorado Mammoth.

But after seeing the seven-year veteran climb his way to the top of the franchise’s all-time faceoff wins category this season, there hasn’t been anything quiet about the veteran defenseman turned faceoff specialist’s time operating at the dot.

Officially surpassing Jamie Hanford’s previous organization-leading record of 1,301 faceoff wins during the team’s late-season showdown against the Las Vegas Desert Dogs, Edwards now holds the franchise record with 1,314 successful draws.

Securing 237-of-453 (52.3%) opportunities this season, Edwards was once again a menace in going head-to-head with the world’s top draw men, the Jamesville, New York native finished with the seventh-most wins amongst all NLL players in 2023-24. Occasionally sharing the load with teammate Tyler Garrison as a change of pace following a successful transition effort or consecutive defensive shifts, there’s no doubt he could’ve gotten close to matching his career-high figures posted the season prior, when he went 276-for-447.

Coming up just one point short of tying his career-high 11 points (0g, 11a), which he also recorded during the 2022-23 campaign, the veteran produced 10 points (4g, 6a), 98 loose balls, 14 caused turnovers and eight penalty minutes this season as one of the team’s most reliable assets. Unafraid to get involved in transition, the four tallies mark Edwards’ new career-best, while his 98 loose balls represent the second-most in seven seasons on the turf.

One of just five Mammoth players who appeared in each of the team’s 18 regular season contests, he finished the season ranked among team leaders in several categories, including both faceoff wins (237: First) and faceoff win percentage (52.3%: First), loose balls (98: Third), caused turnovers (14: Fourth) and blocked shots (8: T-Fifth).

Trailing only Brett Craig (5) in goals scored by defenseman, his 10 points also positioned him in the squad’s No. 11 overall scoring spot, while serving as the team’s fourth-most active scoring defenseman.

After signing a two-year deal last summer, the Canisius College product is back in the picture during the team’s 2024-25 season, likely set to anchor faceoff duties once again!

And after being voted as the team’s “Most Inspirational Player” this season, he’ll transition his way into the offseason by earning the Jamie Hanford Award (Honoring the very man he passed in the record books in mid-April!).
