Toronto FC sends Hassli to FC Dallas

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.
