November 7, 2017
The Meijer AAA hockey organization of the NAPHL, are pleased to announce that 18U forward Zac Currie has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights.
Currie, 18, is from Grand Rapids, Michigan. In 27 games this year, the 5’10/170 lbs. right-handed shot has scored 20 goals and recorded 13 assists for Meijer AAA 18U team in the NAPHL. In NAPHL play, he leads the squad with 9 points in 8 total games.
“Zak is an electric, skilled forward capable of putting up points in bunches as made evident by his stats this year,” said Knights assistant GM, Justin Schreiber. “He has had a great start to the year and we are excited to add a player of his caliber to the organization.”
“I picked the Knights because I like the staff and I think the organization is a good fit for my style of play,” said Currie. “I play a fast and skilled game. As far as the rest of this season, I just want to continue to improve areas of my game and continue to contribute to my team’s success.”
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 5, 2018.
