Rocky Mountain 18U forward Shuter signs NAHL tender
February 21, 2019
The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders, proud members of the NAPHL, are pleased to announce that 18U forward Jared Shuter has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Amarillo Bulls of the NAHL’s South Division.
Shuter, 17, is currently in his first season with the Rocky Mountain RoughRiders. Shuter has played 16 NAPHL regular season games this season and has 4 goals and 7 assists for 11 points.
The 6’2/180 lbs. native of Prescott, Arizona, had a very good run at the recent NAPHL Dixon Cup Championships, recording six points in four games played.
"Jared has been a steady player who has been committed to improve his game from his first day with the RoughRiders. He has been diligent and pushed himself to improve. His tender offer and acceptance is a tribute to his integrity towards the game and our organization. It is well earned and well deserved," said 18U Head Coach Doug Smail.
Shuter is the second Rocky Mountain RoughRiders' player this season to sign a NAHL tender agreement.
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.
