The Houston Dynamo have signed forward Chandler Hoffman, the club announced today. Per club and league policy, terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The Dynamo selected Hoffman in Stage Two of the MLS Re-Entry draft on Dec. 18. The 24-year-old scored a team-best 14 goals in 19 appearances last season while on loan to LA Galaxy II of USL Pro. Hoffman also made eight appearances with the Galaxy last season.
"We are pleased to add Chandler Hoffman to our roster,” said Dynamo vice president/general manager Matt Jordan. “He's a promising, young, intelligent soccer player that provides flexibility within our attack. After a strong 2014 USL Pro season, we look forward to seeing him grow within our group."
Hoffman was acquired by the Galaxy in a trade with the Philadelphia Union in March 2013. A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Hoffman played three years at UCLA and was named a MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist after scoring 18 goals in 2011.
