Montero got my first-place vote, with my second going to LA's David Beckham.
Here's the release from the league:
Seattle Sounders FC forward Fredy Montero has been voted Major League Soccer Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) for Week 17. Montero scored two second-half goals as Sounders FC rallied to beat the Portland Timbers, 3-2, on Sunday at JELD-WEN Field.
It is the third time Montero has been voted MLS Player of the Week. He last earned the honor in Week 22 of 2010.
Never miss a local story.
Seattle defender Jeff Parke won the award in Week 10 this season.
The MLS Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season by a panel of journalists from NASR. The group consists of members of print, television, radio and online media. More information and membership information can be found at www.soccerreporters.com.
