His best years came in 2009 when he had 8 goals and 12 assists, and the following season in 2010 when he notched 14 goals and 3 assists to lead the rapids to the MLS Cup title.

He also led the team with 14 goals in 29 games after scoring eight goals to go with 12 assists in 2008. It was the type of season that had him a work permit away from a loan with the English Premier League team Aston Villa.

Last season he managed only 6 goals and 2 assists for the Rapids while enduring injuries that limited his playing time.
