FC Dallas takes Dan Kennedy in Dispersal Draft

New, comments

Dallas uses their first pick in the Dispersal Draft wisely.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas made sure to select the best player available in Wednesday's Chivas USA Dispersal Draft as they selected goalkeeper Dan Kennedy with the first overall pick.

Kennedy spent six years with Chivas USA where he played in 144 games and was the club's longest-serving player. In 2014 he had 93 saves with 57 goals against. 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. It wasn't until 2011 that he got his first big shot with the club as their main starter.

Kennedy was only one of seven players taken in Wednesday's draft. Now the question will be how FC Dallas fits him into the roster with Chris Seitz and Raul Fernandez already on the roster. For what it is worth, Kennedy did sign a contract extension that takes him through 2016 while both current FCD keepers have options on their contracts that the club will have to work out before the end of the year.

Here is how the entire draft went:

1. FC Dallas - Dan Kennedy
2. New York City FC - Matthew Dunn
3. Sporting Kansas City - Pass
4. DC United - Thomas McNamara
5. New England Revolution - Pass
6. Montreal Impact - Donny Toia
7. Orlando City SC - Pass
8. Colorado Rapids - Caleb Calvert
9. San Jose Earthquakes - Kristopher Tyrpak
10. Real Salt Lake - Pass
11. Houston Dynamo - Pass
12. Portland Timbers - Pass
13. Chicago Fire - Pass
14. Toronto FC - Marky Delgado
15. Columbus Crew SC - Pass
16. LA Galaxy - Pass
17. Philadelphia Union - Pass
18. New York Red Bulls - Pass
19. Seattle Sounders FC - Pass
20. Vancouver Whitecaps FC - Pass
