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.
