SBI MLS Rookie of the Week: Perry Kitchen

Perry Kitchen isn't naturally a right fullback, but you wouldn't have guessed it watching him hold his own against FC Dallas standout Brek Shea.

Kitchen, the No. 3 pick in the 2010 MLS Draft, did his part in helping contain Shea as D.C. United escaped Pizza Hut Park with a 0-0 tie last weekend. The performance was good enough to help Kitchen earn SBI MLS Rookie of the Week honors.

Kitchen followed up teammate Ethan White, who was last week's winner, and beat out the likes of Chicago's Jalil Anibaba and Chivas USA's Zarek Valentin for this week's nod.

What did you think of Kitchen's performance? What rookie impressed you this week?
