After a weekend that saw Chris Wondolowski lock up the Golden Boot as the top scorer in MLS, the San Jose Earthquakes forward added to his laurels Monday, earning the nod as MLS Player of the Week.

Wondolowski started his week with a hat trick off the bench in San Jose's 3-0 victory over Chivas USA on Wednesday. He tallied San Jose's lone goal in a 4-1 loss to the Kansas City Wizards on Saturday, taking his season goal total 18, one more than Edson Buddle.

The award is Wondolowski's third on the year, as he was voted Player of the Week in Weeks 26 and 28 as well. His late goal-scoring run not only pushed him past Buddle for the Golden Boot, but also into strong contention for the MLS Most Valuable Player award.

What do you think of Wondolowski winning the award? Glad to see him close out his strong season this way? Should he win MVP?
