Ricketts joined Veikkausliiga club MyPa in 2009. He made his debut on 4 March 2009 and scored his first goal against Kuopion Palloseura on 13 June. He scored two goals in Europa League against Politehnica Timișoara who became interested in signing him.
Politehnica Timișoara Edit
On 19 November 2010 Ricketts signed with the Romanian club Politehnica Timișoara for three years. At his presentation at the press conference, he said : "I'm glad I signed with Poli, to me is a step forward in my career. I can't wait to play at my new team and I can't wait to reunite "Poli" fans, which impressed me when I played here in Europa League with MyPa-47". He chose the number 87. On 26 February 2011 Ricketts made his debut for Politehnica Timișoara on Dan Păltinişanu in a 3–1 win against Gaz Metan Mediaş. He played twenty minutes in the match after replacing injured Marián Čišovský. Ricketts scored his first goal for Politehnica Timișoara on 5 March 2011 against CFR Cluj. He scored the winning goal in the 78th minute. Politehnica Timișoara was bankrupted in the summer of 2012, and Ricketts was released from his contract.
On 31 August 2012 it was announced that Ricketts had signed for Vålerenga in the Norwegian Tippeligaen on a free transfer, he would be joining fellow Canadian international Lars Hirschfeld at the club. Ricketts made his debut in Norway as a second half sub for Torgeir Børven in a 1–0 defeat to Sogndal 5 November 2012.
Sandnes Ulf Edit
In early January 2013 it was announced that Ricketts had signed with Sandnes Ulf allowing him to remain in the Tippeligaen. He made his debut for the club on 17 March in a 2–0 defeat to Strømsgodset. Ricketts played a total of 12 matches in Tippeligaen until he left Sandnes Ulf in September 2013, he also scored two goals for the club in the Norwegian Cup.
On 6 September 2013 Ricketts signed for Turkish First League club Bucaspor, a 1-year contract with a 1-year option. He scored his first two goals for the team in a 5-4 loss to Adana Demirspor on 22 September 2013.
On 16 July 2014 Ricketts announced on Twitter he had signed for Israeli Premier League club Hapoel Haifa. He debuted with the side on 16 August 2014 in a Toto Cup match against Bnei Sakhnin, and scored a goal in an eventual 2-2 draw. He scored his first league goal against Beitar Jerusalem in a loss on 9 February 2015. In total, Ricketts made 30 appearances for the club, scoring a single goal. His lack of offensive production at the club can be attributed to being used as a defender for the entire season because of personnel issues on the roster.
In 2007 Tosaint was called up to the Canadian U-20 team for the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup held on home soil. He also made appearances for Canada in the 2008 CONCACAF Men's Pre-Olympic Tournament in which he scored twice against Guatemala.
In late January 2011, Ricketts was called up by Canada for the first time ahead of its international friendly against Greece on 9 February. Ricketts made his senior team debut for Canada as a late second half sub in this game which ended as a 1–0 loss. Tosaint was one of three Canadian players to make their international senior debut against Greece; Milan Borjan and David Edgar were the other two.
On 1 June 2011 Ricketts scored his first international goal, a stoppage time equalizer, in a 2–2 friendly match against Ecuador at BMO Field. Ricketts made his CONCACAF Gold Cup debut on 14 June in a 1–1 draw against Panama as a second half sub for Josh Simpson.
Ricketts reached 10 goals for Canada on June 16, 2015 after scoring a brace against Dominica in 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying. This tied him with Paul Peschisolido and Tomasz Radzinski for 9th all time on Canada's scoring charts.
