HOW ACQUIRED: Traded from Columbus on August 9, 2017.
Finlay broke out in 2014 under the tutelage of Gregg Berhalter. The speedy right winger broke out scored 11 goals in 2014 before registering 12 goals and 13 assists in 2015. He will look to get back to that level of performance with Minnesota after a down year-and-a-half. The Creighton graduate stretches defenses with his elite speed and he uses that speed to get by opposing defenders.
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.
