Inescapably Canadian Power Rankings: MLS Week 7/USL Week 5

2

It was a very active week for Canadians in MLS and USL.

First, congratulations to Real Monarchs’ forward Mastanabal Kacher, who netted a brace in a midweek game against Sounders 2. Kacher, who ate up minutes for Colorado Springs last season, has now made an impact in his new home. (Of, course, because Kacher was a product of Montreal’s academy system, had to get “Impact” into that paragraph!)

Five Canadians — Marcel de Jong, Alphonso Davies, Russell Teibert, Mark-Anthony Kaye a and Dejan Jakovic — started in Friday’s game between LAFC and the Vancouver Whitecaps.

And, the numbers for Canadians in MLS swelled as Ryan Telfer, Julian Dunn-Johnson and Liam Fraser all made their MLS debuts in Saturday’s loss for TFC in Colorado. Needing to rest players for their CONCACAF Champions League final against Chivas, TFC began a run of two MLS league weekends that will see coach Greg Vanney employ depth players. Because Vanney needs to keep the likes of Sebastian Giovinco, Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore fresh for the CCL, the opportunity is there for players to come up from TFCII and make some sort of impression with the big club.

Here are the rankings after the seventh week of MLS play/fifth week of USL action:

    Jackson-Hamel Seems to be struggling this year. Great to see Kaye and Chapman over the illustrious 400 mark. Johnson has returned to his normal consistent self after one off week. Hamilton with a strong showing despite it being in a losing effort. Beland-Goyette, eye carumba. Has he had a plus week yet? If so I can’t remember.

    Great to see some new players making the list and most did reasonably well.

    Kaye tops the list. Great outing in Vancouver for him. I noticed him and for all right reasons. That and he’s a canuck but had lots of those on the field to watch.
