The Colorado Rapids acquired defender Tyson Wahl in a trade with the Montreal Impact on Friday.

The Colorado Rapids changed things up and made a trade to shore up the back end of their defense on Friday. The Rapids acquired defender Tyson Wahl from the Montreal Impact in exchange for an International Roster Spot for the 2014 season. Wahl is a 28-year-old defender and a six-year veteran who has made 82 career starts.

Rapids Technical Director Paul Bravo says Wahl brings valuable skill and experience to Colorado:

"Tyson is a natural left-footed defender with good skill and size We're excited to be able to add such an experienced player without compromising our roster flexibility as we move into the second half of the season."

Prior to the trade Colorado allowed 24 goals over 18 games, which is the third-highest goals allowed total in the Western Conference of the MLS.
