Diana Matheson with the Canadian women's national team | Photo: Derek Leung - Getty Images Starting off with a trade The trade saw veteran defender Yael Averbuch and the number 25 pick in the draft move to the Seattle Reign in exchange for Canadian international Diana Matheson. Averbuch spent the last three seasons with FC Kansas City before being traded.  Matheson, a graduate of Princeton, started off her NWSL career with the Washington Spirit.

She has 169 caps and 16 goals as a midfileder for Canada along with two bronze medals for the 2012 and 2016 olympics.  New talent The Royals are looking to tighten up their defense for their first season and so they went with two experienced defensive players to help a team that has deep defensive roots with US internationals Becky Sauerbrunn and Kelley O’Hara.
