CARSON, CA - The Los Angeles Galaxy have signed midfielder Daniel Paladini to the Galaxy's developmental roster, the club announced today. Paladini, who was L.A.'s last selection of the second round (24th overall) of the 2006 MLS Supplemental Draft, has appeared in three MLS Reserve Division matches in 2006. He fills the Galaxy's last remaining development roster spot, which was vacated following the departure of Ned Grabavoy.
A native of Van Nuys, California, Paladini scored seven goals and added four assists for Cal-State Northridge in 2005, en route to Big West Conference midfielder of the year honors. He was a first team All-Big West selection in 2004 and 2005, as well as second team pick in 2003, and was twice named an all-state selection as a high schooler at St. Francis (2000-01).
The defending MLS Cup Champion Los Angeles Galaxy continue the 2006 season on Saturday, May 20 when it hosts Colorado Rapids at The Home Depot Center at 7:30 p.m. For more information or to order tickets, please call the Galaxy toll-free at 1-877-3-GALAXY or visit www.lagalaxy.com.
