CarShield AAA 18U defenseman Wright signs NAHL tender
March 23, 2018
The CarShield AAA hockey organization of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) is pleased to announce that 18U defenseman Levi Wright has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Corpus Christi IceRays of the NAHL’s South Division.
Wright, 17, is in his third season playing for the CarShield AAA (formerly St. Louis Selects) organization. The 6’0/202 lbs. native of Fenton, Missouri, appeared in 21 NAPHL games this past season and recorded 14 points.
Wright helped his CarShield 18U team to a 1st place finish during the NAPHL 18U regular season with a 16-1-1 record and spot in the Dixon Cup Semi-Finals.
Wright was also selected to and played in the 2018 NAPHL 18U All-Star Game for the South All-Star Team.
Wright played the past two seasons for the St. Louis Selects 16U team in the NAPHL where he had 36 points in 44 games played.
He is the 7th player for the CarShield AAA 18U team who has signed an NAHL tender so far 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 5, 2018.
