HOW ACQUIRED: Traded from Columbus on August 9, 2017.
Finlay broke out in 2014 under the tutelage of Gregg Berhalter, scoring 11 goals that year. After some ups and down since then, he arrived in Minnesota with inspired play midway through the 2017 season. He'll be looking to build on the chemistry he established during the second half of year as he heads into first full season with the Loons in 2018.
INTERNATIONAL: Received first call-up to the US national team for the 2016 January camp. Appeared against Iceland and Canada.
COLLEGE: Finlay appeared in 79 matches (all starts) scoring 43 goals as a student-athlete at Creighton University. The winger led the Bluejays to its first College Cup appearance since 2002 and a 21-2-1 record during his senior season and was a MAC Hermann Trophy finalist in 2011.
NOTES: Named to 2015 MLS Best XI...2015 MLS All-Star. Selected No. 10 overall in 2012 SuperDraft.
