Galaxy acquire forward Cristman from DC United

The Galaxy have acquired forward Adam Cristman from D.C. United for Los Angeles' first pick in Thursday's Major League Soccer draft.

The trade was made Tuesday, a day after forward Edson Buddle left the Galaxy to sign with Ingolstadt in the German second division.

The 26-year-old Cristman has 12 goals and six assists in 68 regular-season games with New England (2007-08), Kansas City (2009) and D.C. United (2010). He had two goals in 17 matches for United last season.
