The National Lacrosse League has announced Player of the Week awards for Week #3 of the 2013 NLL regular season after all four away teams, three in dramatic comeback fashion, won on the road this past weekend.

Edmonton Rush rookie Mark Matthews, the first overall pick in the 2012 NLL Entry Draft, won Rookie of the Week after posting nine points (4G,5A) on Sunday, the highest single-game point total in the league so far this year.

Two members of the undefeated Philadelphia Wings, transition player Brodie Merrill and goaltender Brandon Miller, were also recognized with awards at their respective positions after a defensive-battle road win in Toronto last Saturday.
