Geneva's Jackie Santacaterina 'Unprotected' in Women's Soccer League Expansion Draft

Red Stars' list of 10 protected players does not include the Geneva star. Could she be going to Houston?

The Chicago Red Stars announced Wednesday the club’s lists of protected and unprotected players for Friday’s NWSL Expansion Draft—and Geneva star Jackie Santacaterina isn't among them.

The Houston Dash will become the ninth club to join the National Women’s Soccer League when they begin play this season. They will be able to select up to 10 players in the Expansion Draft, though no club can lose more than two players. The results of the Expansion Draft will be announced starting at 10 a.m.

Each current NWSL club had the opportunity to protect nine (playoff teams) or ten (non-playoff teams) players from their 2014 roster. Any club with more than two (2) U.S. allocated players must leave at least one U.S. allocated player unprotected. The Dash will be allowed to select no more than two (2) U.S. allocated players, one (1) Canadian allocated player and one (1) Mexican allocated player. A complete list of the Expansion Draft rules can be found on NWSLsoccer.com .
