Matt Weintraub #61
Goals: 3 Assists: 23 Blocks: 3
MLU Experience: 2
One of the veteran players to return to a very young New York Rumble roster in 2016, Matt Weintraub almost instantly became a leader on the field. Playing the third most points on the team in 2016 (170), Weintraub was the primary handler for the Rumble’s D-line.
A talented handler-defender, Weintraub was incredibly effective after the turn, using a strong arsenal of throws and excellent field awareness to lead not only the Rumble, but the entire Eastern Conference in assists (23) on the year. Weintraub’s strong showing in 2016 earned him recognition as a finalist for the Eastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year.
