[MLS]Real Salt Lake's Nick Rimando is Soccer America's selection for Goalkeeper of the Year.

Goalkeeper of the Year Finalists:
Kevin Hartman (FC Dallas)
Donovan Ricketts (Los Angeles)
Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)

You can’t really make a bad choice here.

RSL set a league mark for fewest goals allowed (20), tied the mark for fewest losses (four), and conceded a ridiculous seven goals (another record) in 15 home games.

FCD also lost just four games and Hartman’s 0.67 goals-allowed average is miles better than that of his teammate, Dario Sala.

A few observers downgraded Ricketts a notch from his excellent 2009, yet he still posted a 0.90 GAA and 11 shutouts; last year, his GAA was slightly higher (1.03) though he did have more saves. This year, the Galaxy also allowed only seven goals on the road.

We go with Rimando. His 14 shutouts is just one short of the league record and while a team, not just a keeper, plays tough defense, his quickness, reflexes, positioning and anticipation frustrated many foes this season.
