Meijer 18U defenseman Postula signs NAHL tender agreement
December 14, 2017
The Meijer AAA Hockey Club of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) is pleased to announce that 18U defenseman Brad Postula has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Kenai River Brown Bears of the NAHL’s Midwest Division.
Postula, 18, is in his third season playing for the Meijer AAA organization in the NAPHL. The 6’1/168 lbs. native of Portage, Michigan, has six points (1 goal, 5 assists) in 14 regular season games so far this season with the Meijer 18U team, who are in 8th place with one regular season event to go.
Postula played the 2015-16 season with the Meijer 16U team and then the 2016-17 season with the 18U team. In 63 career NAPHL games, Postula has 9 goals and 13 assists for 22 points.
He is the 4th member of the Meijer 18U team who has signed an NAHL tender this season, joining: Zach Currie (Wilkes-Barre/Scranton), Jacob Kalandyk (Lone Star), and Spencer Oyler (Shreveport).
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.
