League1 Ontario's reigning golden boot winner and Most Valuable Player is on the move.

Striker Maksym Kowal has departed Canadian Premier League club Atlético Ottawa for fourth-tier German side VfB Germania Halberstadt.

Kowal, 29, signed with Ottawa just days before The Island Games before making three appearances – including off the bench in the club’s inaugural game.

The Mississauga, Ont. native moved to the expansion Canadian Premier League club after a golden boot-winning L1O season with Vaughan Azzurri in 2019, netting 14 goals in 14 games.

Kowal has over 100 professional appearances under his belt in New Zealand, Poland, and England.
