September 10, 2013, SOMERVILLE, MA – The Boston Breakers announced today that the organization has acquired midfielder Kaylyn Kyle from Seattle Reign FC in exchange for defender Carmelina Moscato.
Kyle started 19 of the 21 games she appeared in for Seattle during the 2013 National Women’s Soccer League season. The 24-year-old Canadian international scored three goals (second highest on the team) and logged 1,752 minutes, fourth most on the team.
“We are very happy to have Kaylyn join our organization,” Boston Breakers General Manager Lee Billiard said. “She is a great player and a proven player at the national team level. Kaylyn will slot into our organization nicely. She is a great professional who will represent our Breakers brand very well on and off the field.”
The Saskatoon, Canada native won a bronze medal with the Canadian Women’s National Team at the 2012 London Olympics and won a gold medal at the 2011 Pan-American Games. Kyle began her playing career in 2006 with the Vancouver Whitecaps and later played in Sweden’s Damallsvenskan for Pitea IF.
“I want to thank the Seattle Reign organization for everything they have given me last season and for making my first season in the NWSL an enjoyable year, but I am very much looking forward to be given this amazing opportunity with the Boston Breakers,” Kyle said. “I’m looking forward to 2014.”
Moscato was acquired via trade with the Chicago Red Stars halfway through the NWSL season. The Canadian international bronze medalist made five appearances (one start) with the Breakers, tallying 76 minutes.
“I would like to thank Carm for what she did during her time at the Breakers,” Billiard said. “She is an ultimate professional, on and off the field, and a great role model for younger players starting their careers in this league. We wish her all the best in Seattle.”
