Quintessentially Canadian Power Rankings, MLS Week 6/NASL Week 2

Cyle Larin scored his first-ever MLS goal. Kyle Porter scored his first goal for the Atlanta Silverbacks.

And FC Edmonton has run out to a commanding lead amongst MLS and NASL teams — when it comes to giving Canadian players minutes in league games. The Eddies started three Canadians — who all played the full 90 — in their 1-1 draw with Carolina; add to that sub Michael Nonni, who came on for 14 minutes of action.

No team comes within 40 minutes per game of the Eddies when it comes to giving playing time to Canadian players. And the top three teams are all NASL clubs. The Fury, yeah, we’d expect to see Ottawa near the top, but Atlanta continues to be strong as it looks as if Porter and Dominic Oppong have locked down starting jobs.

    Do you know if Karl Ouimette is training with RBNY II or RBNY mainly? He’s listed on the MLS roster but played for RBNY II against TFC II. He hasn’t seen any MLS action, but it doesn’t seem clear that he’s been officially loaned to their USL team.

    Maybe I just didn’t see him, but is there any reason why Patryk Misik isn’t on the Canadian list?

      Good catch. I have edited to fix that omission.

    Thanks for this Steve, enjoy reading each week. Would be interested to see team rankings without the maybes too.

    Another thing I’d love to have aggregated like this each week would be TV ratings. The MLS stats aren’t too hard to find usually, but I’d be curious about local NASL ratings too.
