April 18, 2017
Rocky Mountain RoughRiders 16U defenseman Jack Millar played in the NAPHL 16U All-Star Game this past season.
The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders, proud members of the NAPHL, are pleased to announce that 16U defenseman Jack Millar, 16, has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Coulee Region Chill. The Chill are members of the NAHL’s Midwest Division.
Millar (6'4/195) is a native of Westminster, Colorado, and is currently in his fourth season with the RoughRiders. During the 2016-17 season, he had 30 points in 28 NAPHL games this past season, which included playoffs.
Millar participated in the 2016 NAPHL 16U All-Star Game for Team Suter in December and was also selected to the NAPHL All-Star 1st Team and All-Academic Team.
He is the seventh Rocky Mountain RoughRiders player this season to sign an NAHL tender and the second 16U player.
The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders would like to wish Jack 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.
