The Legend of Robert Earnshaw

34 year-old Robert Earnshaw logged just 43 minutes for the Vancouver Whitecaps in 2015, but managed to score a pair of goals. Last year he scored three goals in just 174 minutes, and he also scored in the 2013 season finale. Putting that all together, in Earnshaw's last 306 minutes on the field, spanning 15 matches, Earnshaw has six goals on 16 shots. If you're keeping track, that's 1.76 goals per 90 minutes. Here's a look at his goals that include three game winners, two equalizers and four strikes after the 80th minute:

10/26/13 - Tor vs Montreal, 16th minute, W 1-0, Game Winning Goal
8/23/14 - Chi vs Tor, 70th minute, D 2-2, Goal tied game at 1
8/30/14 - Chi vs Dal, 83rd minute, W 1-0, Game Winning Goal
10/2/14 - Chi vs Phi, 92nd minute, D 1-1, Goal tied game at 1
3/28/15 - Van vs Por 90th minute, W 2-1, Game Winning Goal
10/25/15 - Van vs Hou 93rd minute, W 3-0

Not bad for a guy who has been on three teams in three years and started just two regular season matches in the last two.
