Columbus Crew trade GK Gruenebaum, acquire Clark

The Columbus Crew have traded goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum to

Sporting Kansas City for a second-round draft pick in 2016 and also

acquired goalkeeper Steve Clark from Seattle Sounders FC for a

fourth-round pick in the 2015 draft.

The deals added to a busy past month in which the club has

completely transformed its roster.

Clark has played the past four seasons with Honefoss BK,

currently in Norway’s Tippeligaen, the country’s top division. The

Oakland University graduate and Michigan native had a record of

30-32-32 with a 1.34 goals-against average and 26 shutouts.

Gruenebaum played the past eight seasons with the Crew, posting

a 26-31-21 record and a 1.29 goals-against average with 18

shutouts.
