CHICAGO -- Canada captain Christine Sinclair has been awarded the first ever National Women's Soccer League's player of the month award.

The 29-year-old Portland Thorns forward scored two goals and had an assist over three games to help her team post a 2-0-1 record for the month.

Sinclair converted from the penalty spot to score the first goal of the season for the Thorns in a 1-1 draw with Kansas City in the inaugural NWSL game on April 13.

The Burnaby, B.C., native assisted on forward Alex Morgan's goal in a 2-1 win for Portland against Seattle Reign FC in the Thorns' home-opener on April 21. Sinclair then scored her team's second goal in the Thorns' next game -- a 2-0 road victory over the Chicago Red Stars on April 27.
