As per the official team blog, here are the Wizards’ selections in the 2008 MLS Supplemental Draft:
39th F Tom Gray from Monmouth.
– Pro Player Pipeline evaluation: “NEC 2nd team; 6g,4a in 19/19 games; almost 4 year starter; assist productivity waned with the graduation of Steven Holloway last year.”
53rd GK Andrew Kartunen from Stanford.
– Buzz Carrick at 3rddegree evaluation: “A player that was on last year’s list and I am glad to see invited to the MLS Combine. Kartunen was building a strong career at Stanford and with various Youth national teams until his 2006 senior year was lost due to a shoulder injury prior to the campaign. With a medical red shirt for 2006, Kartunen returned in 2007 with high expectations only to lose half his 5th year with a concussion. The 6’1” netminder was named Pac 10 Honorable Mention in 2007 despite only playing 8 games due to his 0.56 goals against average. Kartunen was a member of the US U20 team that went to the 2005 Worlds.”
