Eric Hassli

Hassli Traded For Pick

Toronto FC announced Monday the club acquired a conditional second round pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft from FC Dallas in exchange for Designated Player and Forward Eric Hassli.

“Eric requested a move for family related reasons and we committed to him we would make every effort to do so, providing the deal was favourable for the team," said Toronto FC President and General Manager Kevin Payne. "We are satisfied with the terms of the trade. If Eric has a productive year for Dallas the consideration paid to us will be greater."

Payne added "The most important aspect of this deal is creating salary cap room and a designated player spot. We'd like to thank Eric for his contributions to our club and wish him all the best with his new team."

Hassli, 31, was acquired from the Vancouver Whitecaps FC on July 20, 2012 and made eight appearances, scoring three goals and adding two assists in all competitions for Toronto FC.
