When it comes to Canadians and the Portland Thorns, its Christine Sinclair who gets the headlines. After all, she was the NWSL’s first-ever player of the month. But, on Tuesday, it wasn’t the Thorns’ Canadian striker making the news — it was the team’s Canadian keeper. Karina LeBlanc was named the league’s Player of the Week. LeBlanc made seven saves as the Thorns were fortunate to get a 0-0 draw out of their weekend match against the league-topping Sky Blue FC. Two of the saves came after the 90th minute. But, while this is a weekly award, LeBlanc’s body of work for the 2013 season can’t be ignored. She has six clean sheets and tops the league with a 0.64 goals-against average. Erin McLeod looks to have solidified her position as Canada’s No. 1 keeper — she was the only thing that kept the host Germans from turning last week’s 1-0 friendly win over our women’s national side. But, with a fantastic debut season in NWSL, LeBlanc has ensured she remains in that conversation.
