New Jersey 18U forward Haviland signs NAHL tender
March 27, 2017
The New Jersey Jr. Titans of the NAPHL are pleased to announce that 18U forward Shane Haviland has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Springfield Jr. Blues. The Jr. Blues compete in the NAHL's Midwest Division.
Haviland, 17, just completed his first 18U season with the Jr. Titans. The 5’11/180 lbs. native of Wall, New Jersey, finished 3rd in team scoring this season with 21 points in just 18 games played.
"Shane is a dynamic offensive player with remarkable vision and play making abilities,” said New Jersey 18U head coach George Haviland.
Haviland has played three years in the NAPHL beginning during the 2014-15 season with the 16U team. In three NAPHL seasons, Haviland has played in 49 games and recorded 33 points.
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.
