Harden the Galaxy’s 2007 Defender of the Year did not play in 2008 after electing to step away from the game to pursue philanthropic endeavors last February. A second round pick in the 2007 MLS SuperDraft out of the University of Washington Harden appeared in and started a then-rookie record 24 games for the Galaxy in 2007 playing 2086 minutes for the Galaxy which were the second most on the club that season.
The SuperDraft will begin at 12 p.m. MT on Thursday with ESPN2 televising the first hour of the proceedings live. In addition to ESPN2’s live coverage fans will also be able to get exclusive insights and interviews on the club's new blog the Rapids Undercurrent.
