The Montreal Impact beefed up their roster on Thursday with four picks in the 2013 MLS Supplemental Draft.

The Impact added forward Hakan Ilhan from the University of North at Greensboro with their first-round selection. The 25-year-old played three seasons with the UNCG Spartans, finishing with 29 goals and 19 assists in 58 games. In 2012, the forward was named to the NSCAA All-South Region Third Team and named First Team All-Southern Conference, leading the team in scoring with seven goals and seven assists.

The Impact next drafted midfielder Jordan Leblanc from Old Dominion University. Leblanc, 21, finished his four year university career with 14 goals and five assists in 67 games played for Old Dominion University. In 2012, the midfielder scored five goals and added three assists in 17 games, all as a starter, earning third team NSCAA All-Region and Second Team All-CAA honours.

Midfielder Luciano Delbono from Wake Forest University and defender Juan Arbelaez from Virginia Commonwealth University where selected in the third and fourth round, respectively.

The 21-year-old Delbono played four seasons with Wake Forest, playing a total of 63 games, scoring one goal and adding five assists over that span. In 2012, the midfielder started 18 of 19 appearances, scoring one goal and adding two assists.

Arbelaez, 22, started 20 of 21 games in 2012 for Virginia Commonwealth University, earning four assists. He joined the Rams in 2011 following two seasons at Georgia Permiter College.

The Impact passed on its fifth and last selection.

"The four players selected are players we have watched and seen over the last year," said Impact director of soccer operations, Matt Jordan. "We will evaluate how they will fit into our current and future plans while looking at the needs of our team."
