The Chicago Fire traded homegrown player Harry Shipp to the Montreal Impact in exchange for general and targeted allocation money on Saturday, the team announced.

Shipp is fan favorite for the Fire, having grown up in Lake Forest, Ill., and playing college soccer at Notre Dame before signing with the club before the 2014 season.

The midfielder has appeared in 66 games for the Fire in two years with the team, scoring 10 goals and assisting on 14 others.

Chicago finished in last place in the Eastern Conference in its 2015 campaign, winning just eight of its 34 games.
