Lots of news breaking the past day or so in regards to MLS drafts. First MLS announced that the Montreal Impact's expansion draft will be held on November 23rd.
Yesterday MLS posted an article that announced that the MLS re-entry draft will be held December 5th and 12th.
You may be asking yourself, "What exactly is the MLS re-entry draft?"
Per the MLSsoccer.com article;
As in 2010, most players who are out of contract or whose options are not exercised by their current clubs will have the opportunity of signing with new teams when the two-stage Re-Entry process begins.
This year, the Stage 1 draft of the Re-Entry Process will be held on Dec. 5. Teams will select in reverse order of their finish during the 2011 season, taking into account their playoff performances. The expansion Montreal Impact will have the 19th selection.
Confused yet? If not, than feel free to continue read the whole post here, which goes on to talk about all of the different age categories players can be classified under.
