Rocky Mountain 18U forward Marti signs NAHL tender
November 3, 2016
The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders, proud members of the NAPHL, are pleased to announce that 18U forward Jacob Marti (5’11”/185) has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Bismarck Bobcats. The Bobcats are members of the NAHL’s Central Division.
Marti, 17, is in his third year playing for the RoughRiders. The native of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, currently has 16 points in 9 NAPHL games where he leads the RoughRiders 18U team in scoring and currently ranks 4th in scoring in the NAPHL.
Last season, Marti played for the RoughRiders 16U team in the NAPHL, where he was 3rd on the team in scoring with 18 points in 25 games played. He also played in the 2015-16 NAPHL 16U All-Star Game, where he scored a goal.
He is the first Rocky Mountain RoughRiders player this season to sign an NAHL tender. The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders would like to wish Jacob the best of luck in his hockey and academic future.
A tender is a contract, of sorts, 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 will be held in June of 2017.
