Guidelines for this thread 

* In this thread post match updates on all Canadians playing in MLS.

* If you find updates posted in some other thread or on the other Voyageurs forum then post them here as well, but be sure to credit the original poster.

* If there is news that is particularly significant (eg. someone scores a big goal, someone gets injured, etc.) then feel free to begin a new thread on that topic in order to draw greater attention or start a discussion, but also post that news here.

* Some comments on news posted in this thread are okay, but let's not let this thread go off into a long discussion. If the news already appears in another thread (as per the previous bullet) then post your comments in that other thread, otherwise if you want to say something significant or if it is likely to generate replies then begin a new thread.

I kept Tesho in the list until his situation gets clarified.  I also kept Vitoria out until his situation changes.  This list only includes players under contract, no trialists.


Also for the "Whitecaps hate Canadians" crowd, note that they have the most Canadians on their roster now.

Bryce Alderson left the Caps a while back.

On the team "MLS Roster" page they list Adekugbe, Bustos, Carducci, Clarke, Froese, McKendry & Teibert. So lucky 7 and as they say "it's a good start"   :)


The really great thing that I see is all 3 clubs have 6 or 7 players on them and mostly younger ones. That bodes well.

Here's how I foresee each player into where they fit on their teams. I think it will be interesting to see how I predicted come November. Thoughts?


Regular starters (1500+ minutes): de Jong, Akindele, Johnson (when healthy), Osorio, Teibert

Occasional starters / regular subs (500 - 1500 minutes): Bekker, Larin, Tissot, Bernier, Chapman, Adekugbe

Occasional sub (< 500 minutes): Ouimette, Gagnon-Lapare, Morgan, Bustos, Froese

USL: Crepeau, Beland-Goyette, Jackson-Hamel, Aparicio, Roberts, Hamilton, Manella, Carducci, Clarke, McKendry

I'm guessing for Jackson-Hamel as Montreal still are thin upfront. Looking at talent Bustos and Larin should make progress, but they have a lot of competition to deal with.


He's injured right now. He got operated on a sports hernia and he's supposed to fully recover in 1-3 weeks. The lack of a training camp could really delay this year. He'll have to show that he's better than Porter, who just scored the biggest goal in Impact history. I don't see him a starter this year because they'll play with one forward and from what Klopas has said earlier this year, he'll sign a DP this summer, and I expect that it will be a forward.

New York Red Bulls (1)

Karl Ouimette - DF - http://en.wikipedia....i/Karl_Ouimette


HARRISON, N.J. (March 5, 2015) – The New York Red Bulls announced today the addition of three players. The Red Bulls have signed 2015 third-round pick Shawn McLaws and Canadian international Karl Ouimette, pending approval of Ouimette’s p-1 visa and International Transfer Certificate. New York has also completed the transfer of Cameroonian striker Anatole Abang from Rainbow FC, pending approval of ITC.

Osorio plays 90 for TFC in their season opening win over Vancouver. Teibert was subbed out mid-way through the 2nd half. Osorio got the better of Teibert in the build-up to the first TFC goal in the first half. Adekugbe, Morgan and Chapman were un-used subs (although it's promising that Chapman was taken to Vancouver over the likes of Daniel Lovitz).


Bekker was an un-used sub for Dallas in a 1-0 win over San Jose.
