Toronto FC now has the market cornered on Rickettses.

The MLS side scooped up Canadian international Tosaint Ricketts — no relation to former attacking mid Rohan — on Wednesday, bringing the 28-year-old striker back to North America for the first time since his college years at Green Bay.

Ricketts has 50 caps and 12 goals for the national team, and last played for Turkish second division side Boluspor.

“We are pleased to add another Canadian international with valuable experience for both club and country,” said Toronto FC General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko. “Tosaint has trained with the team and has fit in well within the group. We are pleased to get this deal finalized and have him available for selection this weekend.”

Ricketts gives TFC depth to go with Sebastian Giovinco, oft-injured Jozy Altidore, draft pick Tsubasa Endoh, and Homegrown prospects Jordan Hamilton and Mo Babouli.
