Rocky Mountain 18U defenseman Kiemel signs NAHL tender
November 4, 2016
The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders, proud members of the NAPHL, are pleased to announce that 18U defenseman Noah Kiemel (6’5/190) has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Amarillo Bulls. The Bulls are members of the NAHL’s South Division.
Kiemel, 17, native of Colorado Springs, Colorado, currently in his first season with the RoughRiders 18U team has 3 points in 9 NAPHL games.
Kiemel is no stranger to the NAPHL however, playing in both the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons with the Pikes Peak Miners 16U team.
He is the second Rocky Mountain RoughRiders player this season to sign an NAHL tender. The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders would like to wish Noah 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.
