David Arshakyan and the Fire have mutually agreed to terminate his contract. The move frees up an international roster spot and clears approximately $178,850, Arshakyan's 2017 guaranteed compensation from the team's 2018 budget.
Without Arshakyan, the Fire now have five internationals remaining on the roster. That count includes Jorge Bava, Michael de Leeuw, Johan Kappelhof, Nemanja Nikolic, and Luis Solignac. Bava's spot could be cleared soon as well.
The current roster:
GK: Bava, Cleveland, Lampson
DEF: Campbell, Corrales, Dean, Kappelhof, Polster, Vincent
MID: Accam, Bronico, Conner, Johnson, McCarty, Mihailovic
FWD: de Leeuw, Nikolic, Solignac
