As we near the end of the MLS, NASL and USL seasons, we can look at the rankings of Canadians by minutes played in two ways.

There is the glass half-full approach. And that’s to look at the number of Canadians who have appeared in games.  So far this year, 26 Canadians have got into games in the 22-team MLS; in the eight-team NASL, David Doe became the 17th Canadian to play in the leagye this past weekend, as he came on as a late substitute for FC Edmonton. In the USL, 74 Canadians have taken the field in the 30-team league, with WFC2 and TFCII having to fulfill Canadian quotas that require them to give more than half the playing time available to Canada-eligible players.

There is some crossover — that is, some players have played in more than one league this season. In fact, Ben McKendry and Maxim Tissot have both played in all three leagues in 2017.

Now, the glass half-empty part. How many of these Canadians have seen a lot of time on the pitch? Seven MLS players have played less than 90 minutes or less this season. That’s true of two NASL players from north of the border and nine Canadian USLers. As we get to the end of the season, and the teams are all nearing or have passed their 30-game marks, let’s look at how many Canadians have played 2,000 minutes or more — the equivalent of about 22 games. Basically, players who are used 70 per cent of the time or more by their clubs.

MLS has just two who have passed 2,000; Cyle Larin and Will Johnson from Orlando City. Drew Beckie from Jacksonville is the only Canadian NASL player to push through the 2,000-minute barrier. In USL, there are six — Callum Irving, Mastanabal Kacher, Ryan James, Mallan Roberts, Ryan Telfer and Jordan Murrell.

So, in the end, only nine Canadians have hit the 2,000-minute mark this season. If there’s a better case for a Canadian Premier League… please let me know.
