After placing sixth on this list last year, Blaze Riorden demanded respect for the goalie position.

He backed everything up and then some in 2021.

Blaze has reinvented the goalie position with his butterfly technique. He’s able to smother low shots with his legs like a hockey goalie – minus the pads.

Blaze turns defense into offense better than any goalie in lacrosse. He transforms into a quarterback after making a save. Chaos LC shot 45.5% on fast breaks generated by a save by Blaze, who dished three assists and three second assists throughout the summer.
