Karina LeBlanc traded to Chicago

Maple Ridge soccer star Karina LeBlanc has a new team in the National Women’s Soccer League.

LeBlanc is a fan favourite with the Portland Thorns, but after acquiring one of the top women keepers in the world, they traded LeBlanc to the Chicago Red Stars for a 2015 second-round draft pick.

LeBlanc, 33, is on the roster for the Canadian national women’s team, and with the World Cup looming told the club she needs consistent playing time, and to be on a team where she starts regularly.
