[MLS] Forwards Adam Cristman and Jovan Kirovski were traded Monday as MLS teams begin the process of tweaking their rosters for the 2009 season. Teams are allowed to protect 11 players and can only lose one player in the expansion draft, to be held Wednesday. Expansion club Seattle Sounders FC can select no more than 10 players, so not every team will necessarily be directly affected by Seattle's selections.

Kansas City traded allocation money and a third-round pick in the 2009 SuperDraft for Adam Cristman, 23, who scored six goals in 18 games before a toe injury sidelined him for three months. He scored four goals as a rookie in 2006 after being drafted out of Virginia in the fourth round.

"There are a lot of good players on Kansas City's roster," said Cristman in a team press release. "I look forward to learning the system, settling in and making an impact. I am from Virginia and have always lived in coastal towns, but my wife and I look forward to experiencing new things in Kansas City."

Wizards coach Curt Onalfo listed Colombian striker Ivan Trujillo on the non-protected list and Cristman is an obvious replacement. Trujillo played 17 games and scored just one goal.

Cristman was not listed on the non-protected list submitted by either Kansas City or New England. However, Los Angeles - which received Kirovski in exchange for a 2009 conditional draft pick - did include him on its non-protected list submitted by Coach Bruce Arena as he starts rebuilding the Galaxy. During his eight years of coaching the national team Arena utilized Kirovski on several occasions.

Kirovski, 32, played nine games for the Earthquakes in 2009 after arriving in a trade by which San Jose also acquired Kelly Gray and sent Preston Burpo to the Rapids. Kirovski missed six matches because of a foot injury. He started his career with the Galaxy in 2004 after leaving European soccer and has scored 24 goals in 118 MLS regular-season games playing for Los Angeles, Colorado, and San Jose.

MLS opened up a three-hour trade window Monday for teams to conduct deals in advance of the expansion draft, which is scheduled for 1 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday.
