The Montreal Impact acquired promising striker Mason Toye from Minnesota United on Thursday for $600,000 in general allocation money and a 2021 MLS SuperDraft second-round pick.

Toye, 21, had seven goals and four assists in 42 matches (17 starts) over the past three seasons. He was the seventh overall pick in the 2018 MLS SuperDraft by Minnesota.

This season, Toye has one goal in eight matches (six starts).

"We are happy with the acquisition of Mason, who fits the profile we wanted, meaning a striker who can score and who has already demonstrated what he's capable of in this league," Impact sporting director Olivier Renard said in a statement. "This addition is also in line with our sporting philosophy of having young players with high potential in the squad."

Toye has seen action with the U.S. national team at the under-19, U20 and U23 levels.

Toye is slated to be available for Montreal's game against the Columbus Crew on Oct. 7. The Impact next play Saturday versus the Chicago Fire.

Montreal (5-8-1, 16 points) has dropped four straight games and been outscored 14-4 during the stretch.
