Born in 1999, Saskatoon native. Former U-20 and current Olympic hopeful goalkeeper who played his first minutes for the senior Caps tonight in a 3-0 loss where Crepeau was injured in min 58. Kept the Sounders off the scoresheet after that and made a tremendous double-save soon after coming in after a bonehead play by Nerwinski:

At this point, the question has to be, what's the point of this Meredith guy? Hasal is clearly ready for at least the backup role with the first team. Ditch the journeyman American and find a decent,

You what? He's 20-years old, playing hard minutes at first-team level way ahead of expectation. After a half dozen games playing out of his skin, he was due a let-down. He'll probably make way fo

Cleansheet and mostly pretty solid performance! Well done Thomas! Looks like he might get another game in the tournament.

These breaks usually go against our guys...but the back up keeper had a family tragedy, Crepeau injured and all of a sudden a year where Hasal might have got no games....he looks to get this one and a start.  Very exciting.

 

News later today " The Whitecaps have requested an American journeyman keeper from the MLS backup keeper pool after getting council from Greg Vanney".

I read somewhere that the Whitecaps have signed a single match contract with Dave Ayres to play keeper

I heard a commercial on the radio the other day for a car dealership and Ayers is making an appearance. He was billed as “hockey legend” Dave Ayers, one period of hockey gets you legendary status in Leaf Land. 😂 😂

You need 3 keepers in the squad. Hopefully Hasal gets more chances after this showing. 

Chuffed for him. Great showing again tonight. @Aird25 is right with the distribution, bit ragged at times but great confidence, heart and stops tonight. Shame Brett Levis had the injury problems he had otherwise I am certain we would have had two players from Saskatoon in the team!

Most 3rd choice goalkeepers are only there for training. A team could probably get by with a rotation of locally-based, top amateur 'keepers, and searching out an emergency signing in case of a long-term injury to one of the other two.
