Revs' Turner voted MLS Goalkeeper of the Year originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The best regular season in Major League Soccer history has resulted in some individual hardware for one of the New England Revolution's most important players.

Matt Turner was voted the league's Goalkeeper of the Year for 2021, the first player in club history to be recognized as such, on the strength of a 1.25 goals against average, .742 save percentage and five clean sheets over 28 starts for the Supporters' Shield winners.

Revs set new MLS points record with victory over Colorado

The 27-year-old Turner backstopped the Revs to a 22-7-5 mark and a league-record 73 points, winning 17 of his 28 starts. He was also named MVP of the MLS All-Star Game during the season, when the MLS All-Stars defeated the Liga MX All-Stars.

The Goalkeeper of the Year award, presented by Allstate, is voted upon by MLS club staff, players and media.

The award continues what's been a breakout year for Turner on multiple fronts, as he's posted a 9-1-2 mark for Team USA since debuting for the national team in January. 

Turner and the Revolution begin postseason play on Tuesday, Nov. 30 against New York City FC at Gillette Stadium as they attempt to capture the club's first MLS Cup. The Revs won two of three matches, all with Turner starting, against NYCFC in the regular season.
