Sporting KC announced Thursday that goalkeeper Andrew Dykstra was traded to the Colorado Rapids in exchange for a natural second-round pick in the 2020 MLS SuperDraft.
Dykstra, 32, appeared in four games last season, making his debut in the MLS Cup Playoffs on Oct. 26 and saving a penalty kick in the club’s eventual 1-0 extra-time loss to the Houston Dynamo in the Western Conference Knockout Round.
He joins Tim Howard, Zac MacMath and Thomas Olsen as goalkeepers on Colorado’s roster.
“Andrew provides us with important depth at the goalkeeping position,” Rapids Executive Vice President and General Manager Padraig Smith said in a statement. “Alongside Tim Howard and Zac MacMath, Andrew joins one of the very best goalkeeping units in Major League Soccer and we look forward to welcoming him to Colorado.”
A Honolulu native, Dykstra made 17 appearances for the Chicago Fire from 2009-2010, and spent 2011 with Charleston Battery before returning to MLS and playing in 14 matches for D.C. United from 2012-16. Dykstra was undrafted out of VCU, and signed with the Fire’s developmental roster in 2009.
