  • Only one player may be selected from each team. Five of the league's 15 current teams will not have a player selected.
  • Teams will be allowed to protect 11 players from their 28-man rosters. Generation Adidas players are automatically protected, though players who are graduated from the program to the senior roster at the end of the 2009 season are not.
  • Teams with 4 or more international players must protect 3 of them. If a team has 3 or fewer international players, then it must protect all but one.
  • Any developmental players selected must be moved up to the senior roster for the 2010 season.
