At the X presented by The Faceoff Academy


Week 5 saw a matchup of the two best faceoff men in the league, and a few other FOGOs stepped up for their teams and turned in some dominant performances at midfield. Now that we’re five weeks in, we’ve refined our leaderboard to include only those who have taken at least 30 face offs. Check back each week to see the best FOGOs in the league in “At the X, presented by The Faceoff Academy.”

1. Greg Gurenlian – New York Lizards (85-for-138)

In the battle of #1 vs. #2, Gurenlian came out on top, and he now moves back into first place on our leaderboard. His success at the X turned out to be a crucial part of a tight game in which every possession was critical. It’s a one-man show for New York, as Gurenlian alone has taken– and won– more face offs than any other team in the league.

2. Chris Eck – Boston Cannons (55-for-96)

Eck has been dominating most of his midfield counterparts this year, but he lost the upper hand last weekend when facing off against Greg Gurenlian. Eck won just 9 of 25 face offs, which is far worse than his typical winning percentage. Look for him to bounce back next week against Ohio.

3. Anthony Kelly – Denver Outlaws (68-for-120)

The veteran is having yet another great year at the X, and he continued his success last week against Charlotte, taking 16 of 26 face offs. Kelly and the Outlaws are taking on the Hounds again this weekend, so if he can repeat his success, he might move even farther up our leaderboard.

Here are the best of the rest: the cumulative ranking of the top 10 guys to take at least 30 face offs for their team this season.
