BALTIMORE -- The Los Angeles Galaxy acquired forward Chad Barrett from Toronto FC in exchange for future considerations, the Major League Soccer clubs announced from the MLS SuperDraft at the Baltimore Convention Center on Thursday.

"We made this move to give us more flexibility in building our squad for the new season," Toronto FC coach and Technical Director Aron Winter said. "This creates more cap space which will help us create a team capable of playing the style of soccer we are looking for."

The 25-year-old Barrett has 34 career regular season goals in 147 games with the Chicago Fire and Toronto FC in six MLS seasons.

Barrett was originally selected by the Fire third overall in the 2005 draft.
