Nominees for Defensive Player of the Year
The Defensive Player of the Year Awards is awarded to the best defensively postured player of the 2022 NXL season. Elite defensive players are feared gunfighters on the field with elite break shooting and zone control. These are players capable of shutting down entire sections of the field and are typically some of the highest paintball-IQ individuals on the field at any moment. They electrify crowds with their huge closing moves and epic 1v1 wins.
