HOUSTON — The Houston Dash acquired Canadian international Lindsay Agnew in a trade with the Washington Spirit on Tuesday.

Houston sent Washington the third overall pick in Thursday's NWSL draft, getting Agnew and the No. 6 pick in return.

Washington now holds two of the top three selections in the first round, including the No. 1 overall pick. The Spirit had previously acquired the No. 6 pick in a trade with the Chicago Red Stars.

The Spirit took Agnew with the 19th pick in the 2017 NWSL college draft out of Ohio State. A forward/defender, she played in eight games last season with Washington.

"We want to thank Lindsay for all she did for the Spirit," Spirit head coach and GM Jim Gabarra said in a statement. "We are happy for her with this new opportunity in Houston and wish her good luck."

The 22-year-old Agnew, who was born in Kingston, Ont., where her father, Gary, coached the OHL Frontenacs, has won seven caps for Canada. 

Agnew joins fellow Canadians Janine Beckie and Nichelle Prince in Houston.
