Hassli Signs with San Antonio Scorpions

From Toro to Scorpion, Eric Hassli has landed in the NASL. - Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Former Whitecap Eric Hassli has signed with the San Antonio Scorpions of the NASL.

Well, at least Eric Hassli's new workplace isn't all that far from his previous one. Having left FC Dallas on March 8 after his contract with the Toros was dissolved by mutual consent, it hasn't taken Hassli long to find a new opportunity.

Hassli first entered Major League Soccer in 2011, as the Vancouver Whitecaps' first-ever designated player. He played 44 matches over a season and a half, scoring 12 goals in that span, including a 2011 MLS Goal of the Year candidate, and a Puskas award nomination the year after.

Hassli went on to play with Toronto FC and later FC Dallas. Overall, Hassli scored 15 goals in 66 MLS matches. The 32-year-old Frenchman, who has played in France, Switzerland, and England is now in his 14th year as a pro. The Scorpions' website has more on the Hassli signing.
