June 8, 2016
The Philadelphia Little Flyers of the NAPHL are pleased to announce that goaltender Joseph Giacobbo has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Minnesota Wilderness, who compete in the NAHL’s Central Division.
Giacobbo, 17, just completed his second season of playing in the NAPHL for the 18U Little Flyers. The native of Debtford, New Jersey, appeared in 15 games during the 2015-16 season and recorded a 5-8-0 record with a 3.58 goals against average and 90.3% save percentage.
He also appeared in two playoff games going 1-1-0 and making 82 saves on 86 shots.
Giacobbo also played in the 2016 NAPHL Top Prospects Tournament for Team Central in Edina, Minnesota, where he appeared in all four games at the event.
During the 2014-15 season, Giacobbo (5’10/150) appeared in 13 games for the Little Flyers 18U team and two playoff games. He also played in the 2015 NAPHL Top Prospects Tournament.
A tender is a contract a player signs announcing his intentions to play for that particular NAHL team and that NAHL team only. Once a player signs a tender with an NAHL team, his playing rights belong to that team within the NAHL and he may not be recruited by any other NAHL team. Each team is granted ten (10) tenders, which include two (2) tenders exclusively used on players from the NAPHL - plus or minus any trades - which became active on Nov. 1. Tendered players are not eligible for the NAHL draft, which was held on June 7, 2016.
