The 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup Golden Glove winner has once again been nominated for the Goalkeeper of the Year award, aiming to become the first back-to-back winner in MLS history.
Blake started just 25 games for the Union, a smaller number than last year due to more international call-ups and an injury during the Gold Cup final, but dazzled in those games.
His campaign in 2017 is highlighted by a four game shutout streak, the longest of his career and the most consecutive games with a shutout in Union history.
In terms of minutes, his 378 minutes without allowing a goal was the second longest such stretch in Union history.
In 2017, Blake reeled off nine shutouts for the Union, setting a new career-high. His goals against average dropped to a paltry 1.32 and his save percentage increased to 70 percent, with one game remaining.
