The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders, proud members of the NAPHL, are pleased to announce that 18U goaltender Francisco Clark-Silva (6’3”/200) has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Topeka RoadRunners. The RoadRunners are members of the NAHL’s South Division.
Clark-Silva, 17, is in his fourth year playing for the RoughRiders. The native of Boulder, CO, currently has played in 5 NAPHL games where he is 3-2 with a 2.03 GAA.
Clark-Silva played in the 2015-16 NAPHL 16U All-Star Game.
He is the fourth Rocky Mountain RoughRiders player this season to sign an NAHL tender. The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders would like to wish Cisco 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.
