Everett 18U forward Pattison signs NAHL tender
April 9, 2019
The Everett Silvertips Elite of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) are pleased to announce that 18U forward Caden Pattison has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Maine Nordiques of the NAHL's East Division.
Pattison, 18, just completed his third and final season playing in the NAPHL for Everett. The 6’2/193 lbs. native of Lake Stevens, Washington, recorded seven points in 16 NAPHL games during the 2018-19 regular season.
He also had five points in four Dixon Cup Playoff games this past season.
Overall in his three-year NAPHL career dating back to the 2016-17 season, Pattison has 32 points in 58 games played during the regular season.
He is the third member of the Everett Silvertips Elite 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 4, 2019.
