HOW ACQUIRED: Traded from Columbus on August 9, 2017.
Finlay broke out in 2014 in Columbus 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 bounced back in 2019 after missing most of the 2018 season with an ACL injury and was an integral part of the Loons attack in 2020.
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.
