2013 LA Galaxy Roster: LA acquires Chandler Hoffman from Philadelphia

Abelimages

The LA Galaxy have acquired Chandler Hoffman from the Philadelphia Union for a 2014 MLS SuperDraft conditional pick. The roster now stands at 28 players.

The LA Galaxy announced this morning that they have acquired Generation adidas forward Chandler Hoffman from the Philadelphia Union for a conditional pick in the 2014 MLS Superdraft. Drafted in the 2012 MLS Superdraft, Hoffman appeared in seven games during his rookie season with the Union. He's scheduled to join the team tonight.

The six foot forward from Birmingham, Alabama spent his college days at UCLA averaging better than a goal every two games with the Bruins. In his senior year he led the Pac 12 and finished fourth in the nation with 18 goals and also tallied six assists as UCLA made the NCAA College Cup semifinals.

Now the Galaxy have four talented young forwards, stocking up like forwards are going out of style. The Galaxy are also stocking up on UCLA players, now with four former Bruins on the roster. Speaking of the roster, here's how it looks on the eve of the new MLS season.

With the Galaxy depth chart that I've been keeping this offseason, there were 27 players on the roster including the three SuperDraft picks. There were three players I considered a maybe for the roster: Reimer, Arriola, and the Brazilian trialist. Two of the three of those have been cut.

Chandler Hoffman makes 28. Teams no longer get allocation money for leaving the final two roster spots open. It's quite possible we'll still see Arriola brought onto the roster, and that oft rumored third DP brought in.
