Canadian midfielder Kevin Harmse, the former Galaxy player Chivas USA acquired from Toronto FC last season, but who arrived with a right knee injury and never played a game for the club, is gone.
His rights were traded Thursday to the Houston Dynamo.
Chivas USA got a conditional third of fourth round draft pick out of the deal.
I seem to recall being told Harmse had a girlfriend who aspired to be an actress (or something), which is why he wanted to come back to Southern California. So assuming they are still together, this is likely more of a crushing blow to him (or her) than a club he never kicked a ball for in a competitive game.
