Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Toronto FC traded designated player Eric
Hassli to FC Dallas on Monday in exchange for a conditional second-round
selection in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft.
"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 favorable for the
team," Toronto FC president and general manager Kevin Payne said. "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."
Hassli, 31, was acquired by Toronto from the Vancouver Whitecaps FC on July
20, 2012 and made eight appearances, scoring three goals and adding two
assists in all competitions for the club.
"We'd like to thank Eric for his contributions to our club and wish him all
the best with his new team," Payne added.
