Sioux Falls 18U forward Bartoo signs NAHL tender
November 6, 2018
The Sioux Falls Power of the NAPHL are pleased to announce that 18U forward Braeden Bartoo has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender for the 2018-19 season, as he has tendered with the Minot Minotauros of the NAHL’s Central Division.
Bartoo, 17, is off to a great start in the 2018-19 campaign, helping lead the Power to 5-2-1 start in NAPHL 18U High Performance Division.
The 6’1/195 lbs. native of Maple Grove, Minnesota, has totaled five points (1 goal, 4 assists) in eight NAPHL games this season. His best game came in a 1-0 overtime win against Lake Forest Academy, where he scored the OT game winner.
“I would like to thank the Minot Minotauros organization, coaches and scouts for allowing me the opportunity to take the next step in my career, and extending the tender to play for them in 2019-20 season. I am excited to be involved with a first class organization such as the Minotauros and continue my U18 season in Sioux Falls and the NAPHL," said Bartoo.
Bartoo is the first player from the Sioux Falls 18U team to sign an NAHL tender.
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 4, 2019.
