Dynamo re-acquire Serioux from Toronto FC
HOUSTON -- The Houston Dynamo have acquired defender/midfielder Adrian Serioux from Toronto FC in exchange for a third-round draft pick in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft, it was announced Friday.
Serioux, 31, was a key member of the Dynamo's first championship team in their inaugural season of 2006. He started 15 regular season games despite missing time due to injury and all four of the Dynamo's playoff games. Although he played as a center back much of the season, he moved up to central midfield for the MLS Cup championship game against the New England Revolution.
A Canadian international with 19 caps and one goal in his international career, Serioux spent the 2007-08 seasons with FC Dallas and the 2009 campaign with Toronto FC, the latter near his hometown of Scarborough, Ontario. He will occupy an international roster slot and arrived in Houston prior to last night's scrimmage against the Chicago Fire.
The Dynamo will kick off their MLS season on March 27, with their home opener at Robertson Stadium scheduled for April 1 against defending MLS Cup champion Real Salt Lake. Tickets for Dynamo games and the 2010 MLS All-Star Game are available via Dynamo season ticket packages and mini plans at HoustonDynamo.com or by calling (713) 276-7500.
