Thanks to the American July 4 holiday Monday, the official “week” in MLS got stretched by a day. So, all of the numbers below will be adjusted to the end of Monday night’s action.

There are now a total of 35 Canadians who have played in MLS or NASL games so far this season.

Of note in our weekly ranking of minutes played by Canadians in all three North American pro leagues:

In a 2-1 loss to the New York Cosmos, the Ottawa Fury gave over 500 minutes of playing time to Canadian players. Some of that was forced by a red card to starting keeper Romuald Peiser; so Canadian backup Marcel DeBellis got his first NASL minutes of the year. As well, Eddie Edward made his Ottawa Fury debut.

Karl Ouimette was loaned out by the New York Red Bulls to the Jacksonville Armada so he could get some minutes. But, on Saturday, he was an unused sub. He played behind NASL veterans Beto Navarro and Tyler Ruthven.

In USL, the Canadians continue to make impacts. Unlike MLS or NASL, USL recognizes Canadians as domestic players on both its American and Canadian teams. It’s created a paradox; we have cases where USL teams affiliated with MLS sides have plenty of Canadians on their rosters. But, those Canadians know their chances of being promoted to the MLS teams are marginal because they’d take up international roster spots. That paradox is explored in Issue 9 of Plastic Pitch, as Steve Brisendine profiled the Canadians at Swope Park Rangers, affiliated with Sporting Kansas City. You can get the new issue by clicking the box link below or by finding it on iTunes.

Canadian Tyler Pasher scored a winning goal for Swope Park Rangers this past weekend; he was one of three Canadians who were in the starting XI. At the end of the day, four Canadians saw the pitch for Swope Park Rangers. Meanwhile, former FC Edmonton striker Michael Cox got the tying goal for Orlando City B, with an assist from fellow Canadian Zachary Ellis-Hayden, against the Charlotte Independence.
