Forward Femi Hollinger-Janzen was selected in the MLS Expansion Draft in Minnesota’s inaugural season, but only spent a total of 65 days on the team.

What Did He Do?

Hollinger-Janzen was the 10th and final pick of the 2016 MLS Expansion Draft for Minnesota United, a member of the New England Revolution’s unprotected list. He was selected after the Loons previous picks of Chris Duvall, Collen Warner, Mohammed Saeid, and Jeff Attinella. He trained from December to February and was on the roster for five preseason games.

How Did He Leave?

Hollinger-Janzen was traded back to New England on February 15, 2017 for current Loons goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth in a player-for-player swap deal.

Where Is He Now?

Hollinger-Janzen is still with the Revolution. After the trade to his original team, he played in 13 games with one start for New England, playing a total of 148 minutes. He has yet to make an appearance in an MLS game in 2018, but played for the team in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. He also got one start for Tulsa Roughnecks FC while on a loan. After a elbow dislocation in June, Hollinger-Janzen missed a good chunk of the summer, but has since fully recovered.
