TUKWILA, Wash. -- Before the injuries that nearly derailed his career,

TUKWILA, Wash. -- Before the injuries that nearly derailed his career, before maturing and coming of age as a goalkeeper in Seattle, Stefan Frei was supposed to be part of the future for Toronto.That was the idea when he was drafted by Toronto in 2009 as a skilled collegiate star.Frei never became a pillar for Toronto. But he has in Seattle, which adds another layer to Saturdays MLS Cup final. Its inevitable with player movement that at some point they are likely to face a former team. It becomes amplified when its a position as important as Freis and a championship is at stake.I find myself at a different part of my career, Frei said this week before the Sounders left for Toronto. As a goalkeeper as you get older, more experienced maybe the game slows down a little bit for you. At 30 now its a lot slower than at 22.Freis career was cut short in Toronto because of injuries that that cost him most of the 2012 season and falling behind others in the lineup the following season. Given a second chance with the Sounders, Frei found a home in Seattle. Its a place that fits him, from his hobbies off the field as an artist, to the performances he creates standing in net.He has become one of the leagues better goalkeepers in a city where its hard to match the standard Kasey Keller set for the position. Even in the final years of his career, Keller was still regarded as one of, if not the best goalkeeper in the MLS.This season may have been Freis most challenging because of Seattles rocky path. He was solid through, even though Seattle was mostly terrible for the first 4 1/2 months before a remarkable turnaround. Frei posted his third straight season with at least 90 saves and had a 1.24 goals against average in playing 33 of 34 regular season games.Hes been even better in the postseason. Seattle has allowed three goals in five playoff games. Hes posted three shutouts and already made 19 saves in the postseason, and if Seattle is to slow down the offensive attack of Sebastian Giovinco, Jozy Altidore and Michael Bradley, itll be crucial for Frei to have a big game.We are all very appreciative of what he has done for us and how good of a goalkeeper he is, Seattle coach Brian Schmetzer said.Even though he last appeared in a game for Toronto in 2013, Frei never returned to BMO Field until this past summer when Seattle and Toronto played to a 1-1 draw. It was a far different place than he remembered leaving, in part due to a stadium expansion that changed the sightlines that he came to know.This will also be a far different environment than the one Frei and the Sounders faced in July. That day the temperature pushed into the upper 70s and the skies were partly cloudy. On Saturday night, the temperature for the scheduled 8 p.m. ET kickoff is expected to be in the upper 20s with a chance of a snow flurry. When the ball hits Freis hands, it will sting no matter what he does to try and stay warm.I think for the field players it might be easier. Theyre constantly moving, or constantly kicking a ball, Frei said. For us if youre in minus weather and you havent used your hands and all of a sudden a 90 mph ball is coming your way it can be quite a stinger. You want to just keep moving those things as much as you can. ... In the end its 90 minutes of just dealing with it and trying to stay as warm as possible and keep moving your toes and your hands. Courtney Lee Knicks Jersey . Collaros, 25, was solid last season, posting a 5-2 record as the starter while incumbent Ricky Ray was injured. Collaros also started Torontos 23-20 regular-season finale loss to Montreal — Ray didnt dress because the Argos had already clinched first in the East Division — but was one of three quarterbacks to play that day. Tracy McGrady Knicks Jersey . Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow. That means that Marc Bartra will probably start again in the centre of the defence alongside Gerard Pique. http://www.nbaknicksauthority.com/willi … rsey-c-19/ . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59. Charles Oakley Knicks Jersey .ca! Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. John Starks Knicks Jersey . -- Charline Labonte couldnt have asked for a better homecoming. Cleveland Indians clubhouse prankster Corey Kluber got pranked after Fridays game against the Minnesota Twins, thanks to fellow pitcher Trevor Bauer.It appears Bauer poured sunflower seeds or nuts into the hood of an unassuming Kluber during the teams postgame handshakes.A classic prank is one way to celebrate a win -- and also waste some snacks, apparently. Maybbe Bauer just wasnt up to finishing the rest of the pack.dddddddddddd Whatever the reason for the prank, its probably best if Bauer is careful around Kluber for now. The pranked could again become the prankster in no time.--Alex Tekip Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
