FCC, which begins play in Major League Soccer this year, acquired defender Nick Hagglund from Toronto FC on Wednesday in exchange for $250,000 in allocation money over the next two years and a swap of allocation ranking. The transaction makes him the second Lakota West product to play for the local professional soccer team. Matt Bahner played the previous two seasons for Cincinnati in the United Soccer League.
Hagglund, a 2010 graduate of West and former Xavier University standout, spent the five years of his professional career with Toronto after the Canadian MLS side selected him 10th overall in the 2014 SuperDraft. He was a four-year starter for the Musketeers and a two-time conference player of the year.
