The Montreal Impact announced on Wednesday that it has come to terms on a one-year deal, with three option years, with midfielder Ken Krolicki.
“I am very satisfied to be able to count on Ken for the upcoming season,” mentioned Impact head coach Rémi Garde. “He is a player we had noticed from the very first game at the MLS Combine. His commitment and his performances at our training camp prompted me to offer him a contract. He has a high work rate, a good capacity to win balls in duels and the ability to bring the play forward. His daily participation in the first team’s training sessions should allow him to continue his progression.”
“We are pleased to add Ken to our roster,” said technical director Adam Braz. “He showed he had the required technical ability as well as a strong level of determination and a positive mentality throughout preseason. He was consistent in training and in the friendly games. This contract is a reward for his hard work.”
Krolicki, 21, was selected with the seventh pick of the third round (53rd overall) in the 2018 MLS SuperDraft, last January 21. He previously recorded seven goals and 14 assists in 81 career games, including 67 starts, in four seasons with the Michigan State Spartans, between 2014 and 2017. He was named a First Team All-Big 10 Conference and a USC First Team All-Midwest Region in 2017.
