Here are the Canadians who have registered for Thursday's NWSL draft. About 5 have played for Canada's youth teams. Regan has 1 senior cap. There 6 ON, 2 BC, 1 AB, 1 USA, & 1 QC players.

A couple are dual nationals. Riviere didn't register as it appears she is headed to the WSL.


Emily Amano (Colgate- M/D)

Shana Flynn (UCLA/Arkansas- F/M/D)

Tianna Harris (Kent State -D)

Tanya Boychuk (Memphis - F)

Samantha Chang (South Carolina - M)

Sydney Collins (California -D)

Jessica De Filippo (Arkansas - F)

Reese Moffatt (Oregon - D)

Ida Miceli (Niagara - F/D)

Emma Regan (Texas - M/D)

Madelyn Robbins (Fairleigh Dickinson - F/M)


Mikayla Daves & Malikae Dayes are sisters  born in Toronto but have represented Jamaica. Sabrina McNeill played with Oshawa Kicks but is listed as American only by NWSL while Canucks Abroad says she is a dual.

There are about 250 players who have registered for the 48 draft slots. Drafted players need to be offered a contract in 60 days or their NWSL rights are relinquished. 

Quinn is the highest-drafted Canadian in the NWSL. They went third overall to the Washington Spirit in 2018. Evelyne Viens was chosen fifth overall by Sky Blue in 2020 while Deanne Rose was taken by North Carolina in 2021 but opted for WSL.

As per a noted NWSL draft projection, De Filippo is ranked 17th: A gamble on one year of production, but what a year it was. Strong chance creation numbers to go with a whole lot of defensive work rate.

Collins is 19th: Boom-or-bust passer who's also one of the class' best dribblers. Improving overall passing will be key to sticking long-term.

Only 1 Canadian taken in NWSL draft in the first round. About 1 round earlier than projected.

And she is a dual as her mother was a Canadian volleyball player while her father was a NFL player. She has played for the US at a few youth age levels.

National team youth player who was on the 4th place team at the u17 World Cup in Uruguay is going pro at Potsdam from the Razorbacks. She was largely the second striker behind Huitema on the u17 team.

Canadian Culver Paige is also with Potsdam.
