Anthony Jackson-Hamel was credited with one minute of game action for Montreal in Saturday’s 3-0 win over the New York Red Bulls, and he scored. A goal-per-minute is a pretty impressive strike rate.

Jackson-Hamel became the second Canadian to score in MLS this season. Cyle Larin got his second of the season for Orlando City in Friday’s 1-1 draw with the Chicago Fire.

Unless injury strikes, Larin may be a solid bet to become the Canadian who finishes with the most minutes played in MLS or NASL. Remember that he was hurt last year because he was played only sparingly over the first couple of months of the campaign. With the rookie scoring record on his résumé and a hot start to the year, it’s hard to see anything but injury keeping him out of Orlando’s starting XI. And, because MLS teams play more games that NASL teams, if Larin plays regularly, he’ll be hard to beat.
