Steffen nominated for Goalkeeper of the Year Award

Columbus Crew SC Goalkeeper Zack Steffen has been nominated for the Allstate Goalkeeper of the Year award, alongside 20 fellow MLS goalkeepers.

This season, Steffen marked a new single-season career-high for clean sheets, registering 10 shutouts — tied for second-most in the League. Steffen has played 28 games this season for Crew SC (all starts) and has registered 66 saves. Additionally, the 23-year-old has recorded multiple personal and Club milestones, including a 525-minute shutout streak — the longest in Crew SC history and the eighth longest in MLS history. 

Steffen signed with Columbus Crew SC as a Discovery Signing on July 22, 2016. Since then, Steffen has registered a total of 164 regular-season saves while holding a 27-22-13 record when playing for the club.

Players, technical staffers (technical directors, GMs, and coaches) and a select group of national and regional media began the voting process on Monday, Oct. 15, and the award finalists will be announced on Oct. 31.
