Chivas USA’s longest serving player, goalkeeper and team captain Dan Kennedy returns to the Red-and-White for his seventh season in Major League Soccer after signing an extension that will keep him with the Rebaño Angelino until 2016.

In 2013, Kennedy had yet another standout season. The netminder started in 31-straight matches, falling a game shy of tying his career-best when an injury cut his season short and forced him to miss the final two games. Kennedy ranked among the top ‘keepers in the league throughout the season and finished second with 104 saves. Aside from the countless spectacular saves that have become synonymous with the Red-and-White veteran, Kennedy notched his first professional goal, a penalty kick in a 2-1 win in the Quarterfinal Round of the U.S. Open Cup over the LA Blues.

Kennedy was selected by Chivas USA in the fourth round of the MLS Supplemental Draft prior to the Red-and-White’s inaugural season in 2005 after a stellar career at UC Santa Barbara. The goalkeeper opted to play professionally in Puerto Rico and Chile before joining the Rebaño Angelino for the 2008 season.

Kennedy has played in 111 regular-season games and registered 109 starts, which gives him the club lead among active players and places him third and second, respectively, for the franchise lead. Despite missing the entire 2009 season due to a knee injury, Kennedy bounced back in top form and since 2011 has taken over as the unquestioned starter in goal for the Rojiblancos. In 2012, Kennedy made 32 starts and recorded seven shutouts while finishing second for the league lead with 109 saves, which earned the Goats’ captain his first MLS All-Star selection and Chivas USA MVP honors.

A native of Yorba Linda, Calif., Kennedy played at El Dorado High School before attending UCSB, where he started 84 games for one of the nation’s top programs, leading the Gauchos to three postseason appearances (2002-2004) and to the 2004 NCAA final. After graduating, Kennedy joined the Puerto Rico Islanders of the USL First Division for the 2005 and 2006 seasons and was named Rookie of the Year. He eventually came to the Red-and-White from Chile's Municipal Iquique, where he spent the 2007 season and led the Chilean Second Division in lowest goals against average.
