Four of the five Canadian MLS and NASL teams enjoyed winning weekends.

The highlight was John Smits’s addition to the Canadians-played list. After spending the first six NASL games, Canadian Championship matches and even his on-loan time to the Montreal Impact as a back-up, the NASL Golden Glove winner got to start for the Eddies this weekened. He made several point-blank-range stops and was named man of the match in a 4-2 win over Atlanta, including former FCE teammates Kyle Porter and Dominic Oppong.

Off the field, there was some good news as well. FCE’s Allan Zebie, who looks to have claimed a starting fullback spot after making the jump from the academy to the first team this past off-season, was signed to a contract extension that keeps him with the Eddies till 2017. Zebie is also rocketing up the Canadian minutes-played charts.

On the other side the charts: Of MLS and NASL teams that have played Canadians this season, the Montreal Impact are now dead last in terms of minutes given to players from this country. The Impact are averaging just 28.3 minutes per game of time given to Canadian players.

FC Edmonton is averaging more than 10 times that amount, at more than 305 minutes per game played by Canadians.

    Glad to hear Smits got the start. And I suppose it’s good that Boakai was at least subbed in again. Hopefully he gets a start soon. I haven’t seen any league games for FC Edmonton, but he looked great in the Voyageurs Cup against Vancouver.
