[MLS HOMEGROWN WATCH] The Montreal Impact signed Canadian under-20 national team goalkeeper Maxime Crepeau, who becomes the fourth Impact Academy player to graduate to the first team, following Karl Ouimette, Maxim Tissot and Wandrille Lefevre.

The 18-year-old Crepeau, the youngest player to join the Impact in MLS, took part in the preseason camp with the club as well as the postseason tour in Italy last November, playing all 90 minutes in the team's 4-1 win over ACF Fiorentina's Primavera, while training with the first team on a regular basis.

"We are very proud to announce that Maxime has joined the team as our third keeper," said sporting director Nick De Santis. "He's shown over his time with us a maturity beyond his years and his performances at the international level have always been good. He has the potential to be a good player in MLS and he will be working with two solid goalkeepers [Troy Perkins and Evan Bush] that will help his development in all technical aspects as well as on how to become a true professional. I also want to congratulate Youssef Dahha for his excellent work with Maxime."

Crepeau joined the Impact Academy in 2010, having played with the U21 team over the last three seasons.

He started all three games for Canada in the CONCACAF U-20 championships, in Mexico.

    Nice to see the local signing, he is good prospect to become a stalwart on the Impact, imagine a local boy playing on the home club for years and years and leading them with solid performances. Just what MLS should be about.
