  • Only one player could be selected from each team. Four of the league's 14 current teams did not have a player selected.
  • Teams were allowed to protect 11 players from their 28-man rosters. Generation Adidas players were automatically protected, though players who are graduated from the program to the senior roster at the end of the 2008 season were not.
  • Teams with 4 or more international players were required to protect 3 of them. If a team had 3 or fewer international players, then it was required to protect all but one.
  • Any developmental players selected were required to be moved up to the senior roster for the 2009 season.
