Minnesota has apparently signed Jack Stewart, who's just a sliver less Canadian than Will Johnson, but he did train with the Canadian squad back in 07 so he might be included as he was before on MOACA lists:

"Despite their experience, questions remain for the Stars in key positions. The offseason loss of defender Andres Arango, who signed for FC Tampa Bay, strips the Stars not only of their captain from the second half of 2010, but of a key piece of central defense. In Arango’s absence, Kyle Altman, who started 2010 as a defensive midfielder before stepping back to central defense, will be expected to lead the Stars from the back. To replace Arango, Lagos recruited former Miami FC center back Cristiano and former Carolina RailHawks and Real Salt Lake defenseman Jack Stewart. Stewart will make the trip to Atlanta, and the Stars’ success in their season opener could depend on how quickly he and Altman can form a relationship."

April 9

-Ali Gerba, Nevio Pizzolitto, Simon Gatti, Pierre Rudolph-Mayard all started and played the whole match for Montreal in a 1-0 loss to FC Tampa Bay. Antonio Ribiero started and was subbed off in the 70th minute. Mozzi Gyorio came on in the 90+ for the winning side.

-Shauk Saiko scored Edmonton's first goal in their 2-1 road win over the Fort Lauderdale Strikers. Also featuring were Chris Kooy, Alex Suprenant and Chris Lemire, (that's all that I can gather between the photograph from the club's article and their twitter). Eddy Sidra came on as a substitute (this from the RPB board). Sam Lam came on in the 90th minute.

^ Also featuring for FC Edmonton were: Alex Semenets, Kyle Yamada, Dominic Oppong and Paul Hamilton. Lots of Canadian content including plenty of guys who have played CIS soccer. This team doing well in NASL could do a great deal of good for Canadian soccer.
