During the opening weekend of the 2013 MLS season, LA Galaxy forward Mike Magee notched a hat trick in the team's 4-0 victory over the Fire.

Less than three months later, the star forward was traded to the Fire for Robbie Rogers. Magee would go on to win the MLS MVP award after tallying 21 goals on the season.

And now the Fire are happy to have him on the team from the get-go.

During the team's kick-off luncheon on Tuesday afternoon, veteran forward Chris Rolfe discussed how much Magee means to the club.

"We were very fortunate to get Mike last year as everybody knows," Rolfe said. "He helped turn around the season and win the MVP award. Having him back this year, I think it's going to be great to have him back with us from the start of the season."
