Meijer AAA 18U forward Sudbrink signs NAHL tender
May 3, 2018
The Meijer AAA organization of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) is pleased to announce that 18U forward David Sudbrink has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Topeka RoadRunners of the NAHL’s South Division.
Sudbrink, 17, just completed his first season playing in the NAPHL for the Meijer AAA 18U team. The 6’2/195 lbs. native of Nolensville, Tennessee, had six points in 20 NAPHL games this past season.
In 54 games overall with Meijer in the 2017-18 season, Sudbrink had 23 points in 54 games played.
Sudbrink is the sixth player from the Meijer AAA 18U team who has signed an NAHL tender so far during the 2017-18 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.
