According to John D. Halloran of Equalizer Soccer, Houston Dash captain Kealia Ohai has been traded to the Chicago Red Stars in exchange for defender Katie Nauhgton and the 18th overall selection in the 2020 NWSL Draft.

Ohai made 114 appearances for the Dash in six seasons and scored a club record 28 goals. Ohai was originally drafted with the 2nd overall pick in the 2014 NWSL Draft. Ohai served as the Dash captain the past three seasons.

Naughton came into NWSL as the 19th overall selection in the 2016 NWSL College Draft after a four-year career at Notre Dame. She captained the Fighting Irish as a sophomore, junior and senior, becoming the first player in school history to serve as a three-year team captain.

The defender also represented the United States in international competition at the Under-17, Under-20 and Under-23 levels during her youth career, including at the 2014 U-20 Women’s World Cup and the 2014 Concacaf U-20 Championships.
