2014 NWSL: Boston Breakers Preview, Depth Chart & Key Players

2013: 8-8-6 (5th Place)

Head Coach: Tom Durkin
Key Returners: Lianne Sanderson M (22gp 5g 7a), Heather O'Reilly M (20gp 5g 6a), Cat Whitehill D (22gp 1g 2a), Kaylyn Kyle M (21gp 3g)  

Key Newcomers: Courtney Jones F (22g 4g 1a - Kansas City), Lisa DeVanna (16g 5g 2a - Sky Blue), Nikem Ezurike (1st Round Pick)

Analysis: With the drafting of Nkem Ezurike, the Breakers now have four Canadians in their club along with National Team veterans Rhian Wilkinson, Kaylyn Kyle, Chelsea Stewart. Boston have a strong midfield through Lianne Sanderson and Heather O'Reilly who combined for 10 goals 13 assists and 47 shots on target.

The biggest question will be how the forward line will do as the club traded top scorer Sydney Leroux and brought in Lisa DeVanna who played 81 games with Australian National Team. However, the rest of the forwards have no national team experience, so it will be interesting to see how players such as Ezurike develop. 

2014 Prediction: 7th Place
