Stone Sports Management, LLC (Columbus, Ohio) – November 21, 2018

Major League Soccer ("MLS") announced today that Montreal Impact Goalkeeper Evan Bush won the 2018 Audi Index Player Award. The Audi Player Index Award was created in 2015 and rates positive and negative actions of each player on the field depending on the position, tasks, and zones where each action takes place using Opta data. In total there are 88 different components and up to 2,000 registered and evaluated layer actions per match collected live each match.

This comes as no surprise for the 2018 Impact Defensive MVP, as Bush led MLS with 132 saves, which was the second most in the last 10 years. He also was just one of a few players who played all minutes during the MLS Regular Season and was ranked second in xGA (-6.82), shots faced (184) and PK Attempts against (8). His 10 shutouts ranked third, and his 71.7% Save Percentage was ranked sixth best within MLS. Evan Bush and Tim Melia were the only two players to claim a Top 15 ranking in 11 different key Goalkeeping categories. Bush was also recognized six times for the MLS Team of the Week (Starter or Bench) and had an incredible 14-save performance against LA FC which was one off the MLS All-Time record (Tony Meola's 15 saves in 1997).

Congrats to Evan on this award and recognition by MLS and Audi! Bush is out of contract after finishing his 4-year deal signed in 2015. Stay tuned for his next destination!
