November 7, 2016
The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders, proud members of the NAPHL, are pleased to announce that 16U forward Ty Black (5’10”/160) has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Odessa Jackalopes. The Jackalopes are members of the NAHL’s South Division.
Black, 16, is in his first season with the RoughRiders 16U team currently has 9 points in 9 NAPHL games where he is second in scoring on the RoughRiders 16U team.
He is the third Rocky Mountain RoughRiders player this season to sign an NAHL tender. The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders would like to wish Ty 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.
