Tampa 18U forward Morgan signs NAHL tender
December 15, 2017
The Tampa Scorpions of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) are pleased to announce that 18U forward Peter Morgan has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Aberdeen Wings of the NAHL's Central Division.
Morgan, 17, is in his first season playing at the 18U level. The 5’7/150 lbs. native of Lakewood Ranch, Florida, is 2nd in team scoring so far this season with 19 points (10 goals, 9 assists) in 15 games played.
The 18U Scorpions are still in the running for the top spot in the 18U Division as they currently sit in a tie for 2nd place in the division with a 11-2-2 record, good for 24 points.
Morgan played last season for the Tampa Scorpions 16U team and prior to that, he played for Manatee High School.
He joins teammate Stepan Pokorny as the two players from the Tampa 18U team who have signed NAHL tenders so far this season, both of which were with Aberdeen.
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.
