Vancouver Whitecaps have re-signed Tosaint Ricketts through the 2022 Major League Soccer season, with an option for 2023. 

“Tos embodies our cornerstones and is a true professional and leader in the locker room and in the community,” Whitecaps FC sporting director Axel Schuster said in a release. “We are very happy to have him at our club.”

The striker is set to embark on his 14th professional season, and seventh year in MLS. 

He first joined the league with Toronto FC in 2016, where he spent two seasons. Ricketts made his debut in a 4-1 victory against D.C. United, and scored his first goal in the 1-0 triumph over Real Salt Lake in August. 

The Canadian MLS side declined to a contract extension in 2019, allowing him to join Lithuanian side Suduva before he made his way back to the American league with the Whitecaps. 

“I am grateful to play another year for this club, this group of players and most importantly our supporters,” Ricketts said in a release. “We stand together for this city!”

The player has also managed several more stints overseas in Finland, Romania, Norway, Turkey, and Israel. Internationally, he’s made 60 appearances for the Canadian men’s national team.
