With the 2013 National Lacrosse League season in the books, check out which players rank in the Top 10 in the NLL record book for the three major offensive statistical categories of career goals, assists and points.

Buffalo Bandits captain John Tavares, the leading scorer in NLL history, added to his numbers atop each of the three categories by posting 39 points (14+25) in his league-record 22nd season. Whether or not the 44-year-old will retire or return for the 2014 season is still unknown.

Meanwhile, Toronto Rock captain Colin Doyle strengthened his hold on the second spot for assists and points with 84 points (26+58) in 2013 while teammates Josh Sanderson and Blaine Manning join him on the lists mainly comprised of active players. Colorado Mammoth forward John Grant, Jr. recorded 91 points (43+48) this year and passed Gary Gait to move into third all-time in the league's scoring ranks. Needing just 23 points, Sanderson will likely take over the fourth spot next year while Buffalo Bandits forward Shawn Williams, who posted a team-high 65 points (19+46) in 2013, needs 64 points to pass Gait.
