MOST COMMENTED

[MLS AWARDS] Portland's Donovan Ricketts, who set MLS career highs in shutouts (14), saves (92) and minutes played (2,880), was named the 2013 Allstate Goalkeeper of the Year. He also won the award in 2010 with the LA Galaxy and became just the fourth keeper to win the award a second time.

Big saves from Ricketts turned losses into ties or ties into wins as the Timbers lost just five matches, tying the MLS record for fewest losses in a 34-game regular season. Ricketts also ranked among league leaders in wins (13) and goals-against average (0.97).
 
Ricketts beat out Real Salt Lake’s Nick Rimando, Sporting Kansas City’s Jimmy Nielsen and New York's Luis Robles for the 2013 award.

Previous double recipients are Zach Thornton (1998, 2009), Pat Onstad (2003, 2005) and Joe Cannon (2002, 2004).
