Ty Pilson of ILIndoor.com has already made his pick for Comeback Player of the Year – Daryl Veltman of the Calgary Roughnecks.

It’s been quite a transformation for Veltman, who was out of shape when he came to team last season, and finished with 15 goals and 31 points in 16 regular-season games. Veltman has since embraced a new fitness regimen, and it’s paid off well as he’s already notched 13 goals and 27 points in 2012. 

“I couldn’t be happier so far,” said Veltman, who tied a career high with nine points in last Friday’s 21-10 romp over previously undefeated Colorado. “Last season, not only did I come in out of shape but I was also the new guy on the team. This year I have that extra year under my belt and some added confidence that maybe I lacked last season.”

With Dane Dobbie continuing to nurse an undisclosed injury, Veltman continues to be a pleasant surprise on a Roughnecks team that has gotten balanced scoring across the board.
