April 4, 2017
The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders, proud members of the NAPHL, are pleased to announce that 18U defenseman Calvon Boots, 19, has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Topeka RoadRunners. The RoadRunners are members of the NAHL’s South Division.

He is the sixth Rocky Mountain RoughRiders player this season to sign an NAHL tender and the second with the RoadRunners.
Boots is an NAPHL veteran player. He spent both the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons playing in the NAPHL for the Pikes Peak Miners.
In 58 career NAPHL games in three seasons, Boots has 39 points.
The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders would like to wish Calvon 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 on June 6, 2017.
