The NWSL released the 2015 allocations today with quite a few surprises. United States' allocations for the Houston Dash will remain unchanged with Meghan Klingenberg and recently acquired Carli Lloyd, while Mexico's Teresa Noyola will not return to the Dash's roster.

Goalkeeper Erin McLeod and Lauren Sesselmann will once again be in Houston this season, but consistent with recent developments on social media, Kaylyn Kyle will not. Kyle was instead sent to Portland and the Dash will receive NWSL new-comer Allysha Chapman instead.

After spending three seasons in Sweden, Chapman is currently playing with the Canadian Women's National Team in China and has recently played for Eskilstuna United DFF in the Damallsvenskan. You can follow her on twitter @allyshachapman.
