Update on Fromer Wizards

Doing the quick article on Onandi Lowe, got me thinking about an entry I did earlier this year about former Wizards still playing the game around the world. Now that the majority of them are done for the year, I figured I'd give an update of how the players faired.

Antti Sumiala - Porin Palloilijat (Finland) - If I'm reading my Finnish right on Porin's website (which I doubt I'm doing 100% correctly) Sumiala had 12 goals and 8 assists for the third division Finnish side in 36 games.
Chris Klein - Real Salt Lake/LA Galaxy - Split time between the two MLS sides, scoring 2 goals and recording 4 assists in 32 league games.
Dave van den Bergh - New York Red Bulls - Cooled, after a strong start, finishing with 2 goals and 8 assists in 29 games. Although he spent a lot of that time later in the season back on defense.
Stephen Armstrong - Charleston Battery - Had the second most goals of former Wizards this past season, scoring 10 goals and recording 2 assists in 27 games for the USL-1 side.
Carey Talley - Real Salt Lake - Three goals and 1 assist in 26 games for Talley.
Kevin Friedland - Minnesota Thunder - Never played a game for the Wizards, but played in 26 games and got 1 goal for the Thunder this past season.
Andrew Gregor - Portland Timbers - 8 goals and 5 assists for Gregor this past season.
Diego Gutierrez - Chicago Fire - Had only 1 assist in 23 games this past season for the Fire.
Shavar Thomas - Chivas USA - No goals, but helped to anchor a very good Chivas defense this past season.
Alex Zotinca - Chivas USA - Joined Thomas in the back for Chivas USA under former Wizards player, Preki.
Chris Brown - Real Salt Lake - Scored 5 goals in 22 games, but was waived by RSL at the end of this past season.
Brandon Prideaux - Colorado Rapids - Twenty-one games played this season, and Prideaux still doesn't have a goal in MLS. He's got to be approaching or passed Nick Garcia's record for games played without having scored.
Jay Alberts - Vancouver Whitecaps - Another guy that didn't play a game for the Wizards, but had 2 goals and an assist this past season in 20 games for the Whitecaps.
Will Hesmer - Columbus Crew - In 20 games for the Crew, Hesmer went 8-7-5 with a 1.45 GAA.
Khari Stephenson - AIK (Sweden) - Had 1 goal in 18 games with his new club, AIK.
Josh Wolff - 1860 Munich (Germany) - Has 4 assists in 14 games for the Bundesliga 2 side, which is currently in it's winter break.
Diego Walsh - Adelaide United FC (Australia) - Hasn't been run out of Australia yet, his team is in the middle of it's season right now, he currently has a goal and an assist in 12 games. BTW, he goes by Diego over there.
Matt Taylor - Chivas USA/Portland Timbers - Split time between the two clubs after being cut by Chivas. Taylor had 1 goal in 11 games with Chivas, and had a goal and an assist in 11 games for the Timbers.
Jermaine Hue - Harbour View FC (Jamaica) - Back in Jamaica, Hue played in 8 games for DC United's first round opponent in the CONCACAF Champion's Cup.
Ihor Dotsenko - Richmond Kickers - A player I missed last time I did my list. He came out of retirement last year to be a player coach for the Kickers. He played in 7 games, mostly as a sub for the Kickers this past season.
Taylor Graham - New York Red Bulls/Seattle Sounders - Played only 5 games, recording 1 assist with the Red Bulls before being cut. He then went back to Seattle where he'd been USL Defender of the Year. Playing in 12 games he scored 2 goals.
Vincente Figueroa - California Cougars - Has not featured for the Cougars in the current MISL season, but is still listed on the team's roster.
John Wilson - DC United - Did not feature for DC this past season.

Gary Glasgow - Joe Public FC (Trinidad) - Couldn't find any stats for the Trinidad league, but Glasgow is still playing there.
Onandi Lowe - Portmore United FC (Jamaica) - The player that got me thinking about this, is still with Portmore, but I can't find any stats on his current play.

Taylor Graham also picked up his second league championship medal with Seattle in 2007. His first came with the Sounders in 2005.
