Inescapably Canadian Power Rankings: MLS Week 19/USL Week 17

It’s been another goal bonanza for Canadians this week in MLS and USL.

While Toronto FC only got a single point out of two games this past week, the offence wasn’t the issue. The Reds scored five times over the course of two games, but this is a team that needs to outscore its leaky defence game after game. Jordan Hamilton scored twice this past week, while Jonathan Osorio continued his best offensive season ever with another marker.

ADDITION (see comments below) Tesho Akindele scored twice after coming on as a 75th-minute sub for FC Dallas, spurring a fightback against Atlanta United. Akindele has been used sparingly in Dallas this year, so maybe this was a watershed moment for the Calgary-born forward.

Mark-Anthony Kaye, the York University product who has been an absolute revelation for LAFC this season, scored in a midweek 2-2 tie with Houston. As you can see on the minutes-played-by-Canadians list below, Kaye has become a real go-to player for LAFC coach Bob Bradley.

And, Paris Gee continues his excellent season with the USL’s Tulsa Roughnecks. The Simon Fraser product scored his third goal of the season this past week, and he’s also got four assists. But it’s not all good news on the Canadian-player front. July is the time when teams shuffle with rosters. And while we saw that OKC Energy added Drew Beckie, we’re also seeing Canadians leaving some respective USL teams; Kyle Porter is no longer with the Ottawa Fury and Zak Drake bid farewell to the Las Vegas Lights.
Meanwhile, the Fury acquired Canadian forward Daniel Haber from FC Cincinnati. Last year, Haber was a regular contributor with Real Monarchs SLC, but had been reduced to a bench rule in Ohio. The move to the Fury will possibly mean a chance to push for more playing time.

Here are the rankings after the 19th week of MLS play/17th week of USL action:

    Well in defence of the host for the web site Hamilton got the highest rating narrowly edging out Akindele. That or he had too many beer 🙂

    Quite a week with 8 different players breaking the 400 mark. Kaye was the only double but Hamilton was close at 393 for the second game.

    Hamilton +805
    Akindele +784

    What no shout out to Tesho? He comes on as a sub with 15 minutes to go and his team behind 2-1 and promptly scores 2 goals to lead them to a 3-2 win. In 15 minutes!!! Now that’s a sub who made his coach look like a genius.

    Part of me thinks it’s a pity that he’s on Dallas as he would start for all but 4 or 5 teams in the whole league. The other part of me thinks it’s a great thing that he faces the level of competition that he does because he’s obviously better because of it.

      Amen, Ralph. Akindele had arguably the best week of any Canadian player last week. Should’ve been the lede.
