Career Summary

St. Clair joined the Loons as a first-round selection in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft from the University of Maryland. The Canadian international secured the starting goalkeeper position in the club’s third game of the 2022 season, after a standout performance at New York Red Bulls earned him MLS Player of the Week. After four seasons with MNUFC, St. Clair is the club leader in wins with 22 across all competitions and is tied with former-Loon Tyler Miller as club leaders in shutouts with 13. St. Clair was selected for the 2022 MLS All-Star Team and was named the 2022 MLS All-Star MVP in front of his home fans at Allianz Field. 

In 2019, St. Clair was a part of the Minnesota United draftee class that included midfielder Hassani Dotson and former-Loon Chase Gasper. During his rookie season, St. Clair featured in three international friendlies during 2019, playing against Hertha Berlin, Aston Villa and CF Pachuca. He went on loan to Minnesota’s USL affiliate Forward Madison where he made five appearances.

In 2020, St. Clair began the season on loan to San Antonio FC and was recalled that September to provide depth to a goalkeeper crew struggling through injuries. St. Clair made his MLS debut and earned his first win and shutout in a 4-0 win over Real Salt Lake. A revelation, he maintained the starting goalkeeper role through the remainder of the season, earning six wins and six shutouts, and 12 goals allowed. St. Clair started all three 2020 MLS Cup Playoffs games for the Loons, maintaining back-to-back clean sheets against Colorado Rapids and Sporting Kansas City. 

INTERNATIONAL: St. Clair accepted an invite for the Canadian National Team camp in January 2021 and he made his senior national team debut last summer in a 7-0 shutout win over Aruba during World Cup Qualifiers. St. Clair was named the backup goalkeeper for the Canada Men’s National Team for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
