Quintessentially Canadian Power Rankings, MLS Week 31/NASL Week 25

As we get into the final weeks of the MLS and NASL seasons, the minutes-played-by-Canadians numbers continue to trend downward.

Marcel De Jong has disappeared from Sporting Kansas City’s squad. Will Johnson needed surgery on his leg and may not appear for Portland again this season. Vancouver didn’t play any Canadians in their 1-1 draw this past weekend with the San Jose Earthquakes. FC Dallas’s Tesho Akindele got just two minutes of playing time.

Yes, Cyle Larin got a goal to help keep Orlando City’s playoff hopes alive. But, let’s look at the numbers. For 15 full matches — which represents half of the NASL season or a little less than half of the MLS, a player needs to hit the 1350-minute mark. As of today, only 10 Canadians have played 1350 or more minutes. To put it in perspective, Johnson, who missed much of the MLS season rehabbing a broken leg and this new surgery, has still racked up enough minutes to get up to 15th place on this ranking.

Here are the updated numbers:
