New York, NY (Sports Network) - Sporting Kansas City's Jimmy Nielsen was named the MLS Goalkeeper of the Year on Wednesday after putting together one of the best seasons for a goalkeeper in recent MLS history.

The Dane's third season in MLS saw him lead the league in shutouts and wins while he held the longest shutout streak of the season as well, which spanned 414 minutes.

Nielsen was one of two goalkeepers to allow less than one goal per game (0.79) this season while posting one of the top save percentages in the league at 74.2 percent.

Finishing a distant second in the voting was Chivas USA's Dan Kennedy, while Michael Gspurning of Seattle Sounders FC was third.
