Impact keeper Gaudette set to miss at least a month of action

Goalies on Canada’s two NASL teams are falling like flies.

Just two days after FC Edmonton’s Lance Parker broke his right arm in a home loss to the Carolina RailHawks, Montreal Impact goalie Bill Gaudette had to leave during the first half off a 2-1 loss to the Puerto Rico Islanders after getting involved in a three-way collision with PR striker Nicholas Addlery and defender Hassoun Camara.

On Tuesday, Radio-Canada’s Philippe Germain tweeted to his followers that Gaudette is expected to miss the next four to six weeks with an injured ankle.

Gaudette, who was MLS experience and lost out to Canadian Greg Sutton for a job with the New York Red Bulls last season, was the marquee off-season signing for the Impact. Regarded as the best keeper in NASL, he was brought in to give the Impact a steady transition from retiring netminder Matt Jordan — and a goalie who could graduate with the club to Major League Soccer in 2012.

Now, Evan Bush, who played for Crystal Palace Baltimore and is a graduate of the power house University of Akron program, takes over in goal. With the Impact in seventh place in the eight-team NASL — with just two wins and eight points in its first 10 games — Bush has an awfully big job to do.

The Impact hosts the Fort Lauderdale Strikers on Saturday.
