Quickly moving to try and fill the hole left by Edson Buddle, the LA Galaxy announced today that they’ve acquired Forward Adam Cristman from D.C. United. In exchange the Galaxy have sent United their first round pick in the upcoming MLS Supplemental draft. Cristman is a four year MLS vet, with stops in New England, Kansas City, and D.C
Cristman, who turned 26 last week, has 12 goals and six assists in 68 career regular season games. A strong and powerful forward, he was a finalist for the MLS Rookie of the Year award in 2007 when he had four goals and four assists in a career-high 28 games with the Revolution. A year later, Cristman scored a career-best six goals despite being limited to just 18 games because of a toe injury. He was traded to Kansas City prior to the start of the 2009 season, but he was limited to just five appearances because of a fractured metatarsal that required surgery.
He tallied two goals and an assist for D.C. United last year.
