Toronto FC announced Thursday that the club has re-signed defender Nick Hagglund to a multi-year contraction extension.
“Nick has established himself as a very reliable defender in MLS,” said Toronto FC General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko. “We have watched his continual growth both as a player and person since being drafted in 2014. He is an important part of our club and someone that has stepped up whenever or wherever he has been needed. We are pleased to give him this well-deserved extension and ensure he remains part of Toronto FC.”
Hagglund, 24, is currently in his fourth season with Toronto FC after being drafted tenth overall in the first round of the 2014 MLS SuperDraft. To date, Hagglund has made a combined 69 appearances between MLS league play, MLS Cup Playoffs and the Canadian Championship with 3 goals and 6 assists for Toronto FC. Hagglund played in all six of Toronto FC’s playoff matches last season. His goal against the Montreal Impact put the Reds ahead 3-2 and tied the aggregate 5-5 forcing extra time, which Toronto won 7-5 advancing to the 2016 MLS Cup Final.
