Arizona 18U defenseman Winslow signs NAHL tender
December 20, 2016
Arizona Bobcats 18U defenseman Brendan Winslow played in the NAPHL 18U All-Star Game on December 4th.
The Arizona Bobcats, proud members of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL), are pleased to announce that 18U defenseman Brendan Winslow has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Aberdeen Wings of the NAHL’s Central Division.
Winslow, 17, is in his second season playing with the Bobcats organization and first season with the 18U team. The native of Richland, Washington, currently has three points in 17 NAPHL games played this season.
Winslow (5’10/168) was recently selected to and played in the 2016 NAPHL 18U All-Star Game for Team Dixon.
At the most recent event in Blaine in early December, Winslow had two goals in four games played.
Prior to this season, Winslow played last year for the Arizona Bobcats 16U team in the NAPHL, where he recorded 16 points in 25 games played.
He is the first player from the Bobcats to sign an NAHL tender this season.
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 on June 6, 2017.
