Fire re-signs Chris Rolfe

The Fire on Wednesday announced they have re-signed forward Chris Rolfe.

Rolfe has played seven seasons with the Fire, appearing in 176 regular-season games and scoring 48 goals, including four this year. But earlier this month, new coach Frank Yallop declined the option on Rolfe’s contract, which would have left him available for any team to pick up in Wednesday’s re-entry draft.

“I’m happy to stay longer in the city I want to be in and the club I want to be with,” Rolfe said in a statement.
