Where do Mines, Davies rank among the youngest goalscorers in MLS history?

The first two weekends of the 2018 MLS season have featured teenage goalscorers, both a mere 17 years of age, opening their league accounts in record time.

First Vancouver Whitecaps and Canadian national team phenom Alphonso Davies netted the game-winner vs. Montreal in Week 1, and then on Saturday Homegrown rookie Ben Mines opened the scoring for the New York Red Bulls in their 4-0 rout of the Portland Timbers

But where do this year's fresh-faced starlets rank in the league's all-time history of youngest goalscorers? Maybe not as high as you might think, but both slot into the top 15. Here's that list, courtesy of the Elias Sports Bureau.
