The Fire on Tuesday dealt reserve goalie Kyle Reynish to the New York Red Bulls for a third-round pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft. Reynish, 31, was acquired before last season after spending one year with the NASL’s New York Cosmos, making one appearance with the Fire.

“I’d like to thank Kyle for his time in Chicago and wish him all the best with his new club,” Fire coach Frank Yallop said in a news release.

With Reynish gone to New York, Alec Kann will likely serve as standout Sean Johnson’s primary backup.

Also on Tuesday, the Fire selected University of Maryland midfielder Alex Shinsky with a fourth-round choice (68th overall) in the SuperDraft. Shinsky was a consensus top-five recruit entering college but struggled with injuries during his time at Maryland.

The first two rounds of the SuperDraft were held Thursday in Philadelphia.

Players report to training camp Sunday.
