Galaxy's Magee named MLS Player of the Month

Los Angeles Galaxy forward Mike Magee was selected as Major League Soccer's Player of the Month on Wednesday for the month of March.

Magee got off to a blistering start in a season-opening 4-0 thrashing of the Chicago Fire on March 3 when he bagged his first career hat trick.

The striker continued to be an offensive threat as he converted a penalty kick in the Galaxy's 1-0 win over the Colorado Rapids on March 24, and then tallied the opener in the club's 2-2 draw with Toronto FC last Saturday to give him five goals this campaign.

The award is selected each month of the regular season by journalists from the North American Soccer Reporters.

Following are the 2013 MLS Player of the Month winners:
