HC Dallas 18U goalie McBey signs NAHL tender
April 24, 2017
Dallas Blackhawks Elite (formerly HC Dallas), proud members of the NAPHL, are pleased to announce that 18U goaltender George McBey has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Minnesota Magicians.
McBey, 19, just completed his third season of competing in the NAPHL for HC Dallas. The 2016-17 season was his best to date as the native of Dallas, Texas, posted a 2.06 goals against average and a 93.1% save percentage for an HC Dallas team that went just 5-12-5 during the regular season.
McBey (6’2/160) was also selected to and played in the 2016 NAPHL 18U All-Star Game, where he didn’t allow a goal in the half he played in, making 11 saves.
McBey was also called up to the NAHL during the 2016-17 season and played in five games for the Wichita Falls Wildcats. He posted a 2-1-1 record with a 1.94 goals against average and a 93.6% save percentage.
McBey is the first player for the Blackhawks/HC Dallas organization 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.
