Good for him. The Quakes, who own the Dragons where he played last summer, have the 6th overall pick, but knowing MLS teams, they'll get someone from a higher-level conference. His hometown team traded away their first round pick (not that he was falling to 21 anyway), but with Seattle trading up to #16 and losing Dempsey, that may be where he lands.

Re: Wright MLS Bound

Seattle wouldn't be a bad place to start a career. This guy has him at #9 and compares him to Wondolowski:

So, he's going to send a game-winning sitter over the bar in the round of 16 for Canada in the 2022 World Cup?

It's Canada...more like Quarterfinal of the Gold Cup.

...in a loss to Curacao?

But in all seriousness, if Wright even approached the senior national team level for Canada, that's a great accomplishment. I could be wrong but I think Nile Walwyn is the only Catamount to ever get capped by a senior national team. St. Kitts & Nevis is little different than Canada though, no matter how inept our neighbors to the north are at soccer.

I hope he makes it. Still gonna be difficult. MLS is all kinds of fucked up, doesn't often allow all players to flourish.

He is going to have the opportunity to make money doing what he loves. I envy him.

Save yourself the trouble. Honestly.

Great honor for Wright. I hope he forges a solid career.

It's not EPL or Bundisliga, but it's getting much better.

I've heard that for 10 years now. It's not Liga MX, either. Please don't tell me the game is "still growing" too.

It's better than it was 10 years ago, so it was true then.
