MONTREAL (AP) - The expansion Montreal Impact have selected Canadian forward Evan James with the No. 1 overall pick Tuesday in the MLS supplemental draft.

James starred in college at Charlotte, scoring five goals in 25 games this season. He also impressed scouts at the MLS combine Jan. 6-10 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

The four-round supplemental draft followed last week’s SuperDraft, in which Hermann Trophy winner Andrew Wenger of Duke went first overall to Montreal.

The Impact become the 19th team in MLS team this season.
