Immediately following the Montreal Impact's expansion draft, MLS conducted its waiver draft, and only one selection was made.
The Philadelphia Union used their spot in the order to nab former Vancouver Whitecaps midfielder Nizar Khalfan. An energetic, athletic winger, the Tanzanian international scored a goal and assisted on four others this past season with Vancouver.
