FC Dallas has acquired defender Jack Stewart on loan from NASL side NSC Minnesota Stars.
The 10th overall selection in the 2005 Major League Soccer SuperDraft, Stewart appeared in a total of 39 matches for the Chicago Fire and Real Salt Lake between 2005 and 2007. The 6-foot-2 center back plied his trade in Norway in 2008, playing with both Moss FK and Nybergsund IL. Stewart returned to the US in 2009, playing in six matches with then-USL First Division Carolina RailHawks before suffering a leg injury.
Stewart spent nearly two years recovering from his injury before signing for the NSC Minnesota Stars during the 2011 preseason. The California native quickly assumed a starting role in central defense for the Stars, who are 7-7-6 on the season despite having the second-best defense in the league. Minnesota has allowed just 20 goals in the first 20 matches of the season.
Stewart twice earned All-Big East honors at the University of Notre Dame during his collegiate career.
