Sam Salter (HFX Wanderers FC)

Salter earns a nod in this team of the week because of his work in Edmonton on Tuesday night. In a match where the Wanderers needed moments of individual quality to break open the Eddies and come back from 1-0 down, Salter delivered; he scored two goals within six minutes of each other in the second half to turn the game around for HFX and secure three points on the road. He’s now got four goals to his name in the CPL this season, leading his team and putting him third in the entire league.
