Not many “original” Sounders remain from the inaugural season in 2009.

Midfielder Brad Evans is one of them, and that longevity has him set to become the franchise’s third player to reach 100 MLS regular-season games played. Here is the list:

1. Osvaldo Alonso, 122
2. Fredy Montero, 119
3. Brad Evans, 99
4. Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, 94
5. Kasey Keller, 93

I told Evans he was approaching that record after Saturday’s 2-0 road loss in Vancouver, and his first response was, “Oh really? Didn’t know that. Obviously that’s special, even though I didn’t know. … That’s great to be at a club for so long. To be able to play is No. 1, so wherever I find myself, I find myself, but 100 games, that’s one of those little notches that will be special.”

Evans is seen all over Seattle’s career records. His 17 assists and 123 shots are third in team history, and 14 goals are fourth. This season he is on pace for six or seven assists, which would establish a new career high.

As you can see from the list above, defender Jhon Kennedy Hurtado is also set to reach the milestone this season. Leo Gonzalez has a chance at 85 games.
