The New Jersey Jr. Titans, proud members of the NAPHL, are proud to announce that 18U forwards Gavin Gulash and Kyle Jeffers have signed NAHL tender agreements with the New Jersey Titans for next season. The Titans are members of the NAHL’s East Division.
“We are extremely happy for both Gavin and Kyle. These two young men have shown us what it takes to both on and off the ice and we are so happy to see them rewarded, " said Jr. Titans coach George Haviland. “I think it continues to show that players can get to the NAHL from the NAPHL and it makes it especially encouraging that both players can stay close to home to play in the NAHL.”

The 2016-17 season marks his third season of playing for the Jr. Titans organization in the NAPHL. Gulash (6’2/200) was selected to and played in the 2016 NAPHL 18U All-Star Game for Team Dixon.

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.
