Sacha Kljestan has tallied 12 assists so far this season (all in league play, as it happens), including two in the New York Red Bulls' most recent game - the 4-1 win over NYCFC.
Kljestan is the leading assist-maker in MLS, despite the fact his contributions against NYCFC were his first assists since May. And he is on track for another notable assist-making season by the standards of RBNY.
In 2015, Kljestan tallied 16 assists for the Red Bulls in all competitions: the joint second best assist-making season in club history. And he had 14 assists in league games: the joint best single-season assist total for a Red Bulls player in MLS regular season matches.
In 2016, he's not far away from setting a new single-season assists record for RBNY.
But the future is uncertain. What is certain is that Kljestan's continued prolific assist-making is rocketing him up the Red Bulls' all-time, all-competitions assists list. Per MetroFanatic.com's statistics archive, Sacha now has 28 career assists for RBNY in all competitions, and that puts him joint fifth on the all-time list.

And he's tied with Dan Richards for fourth on the club's all-time MLS regular season assist list.
