Magee, 29, had a career-best season, scoring 21 goals, second in the league. He was traded midseason from the LA Galaxy to his hometown Chicago Fire but his performance was unwavered -- he netted six goals with the defending MLS Cup champs, then scored 15 in 22 games with the Fire.

Magee's weighted vote total (98.81) beat out two established international goalscorers -- former Galaxy teammate Robbie Keane (58.56) and Montreal top scorer Marco Di Vaio (35.42).
