Kevin Harmse’s MLS comeback lasted all of 126 minutes.

That’s how much game time the local midfielder saw with the Whitecaps before he was waived on Friday by the club.

Harmse, who played in the USL with the Whitecaps in 2004 and 2005, missed the 2010 campaign due to injury. He had played for the Los Angeles Galaxy and Toronto FC. He was a member of Chivas USA in 2009, but never made an MLS appearance for the Goats. He was dealt to the Houston Dynamo in 2010 but was released without playing a game for that club.

Seeing Harmse come back to the Whitecaps was a nice, emotional story for the first-year MLS franchise. But, with Teitur Thordarson gone as coach, and rumours of more changes coming to the Whitecaps, coach Tom Soehn the brain trust could very well be clearing some spots to bring in some fresh blood.

“Being able to play where I grew up is very exciting,” Harmse was quoted by the club when he signed on March 25, just days after the Whitecaps beat his one of his old clubs, TFC, in its MLS opener. “I never imagined professional soccer being like this in Vancouver. To be playing for the club in their first MLS year is a great opportunity for me.”
