Sioux Falls 16U forward Montgomery signs NAHL tender
The Sioux Falls Power of the North American Prospects Hockey League are pleased to announce that 16U forward Drew Montgomery has signed a North American Hockey League tender agreement with the St. Cloud Norsemen of the NAHL’s Central Division.
Montgomery, 17, just completed his second season playing the NAPHL and first with the Power 16U program. The 5’11/170 lbs. native of Grand Forks, North Dakota, appeared in 17 NAPHL games during the 2019-20 season and recorded 10 points. He also had four points in four Dixon Cup Playoff games.
Montgomery played the 2018-19 season in the NAPHL for the Sioux Falls Power 15U team.
He is the third player from the Power 16U team who has signed an NAHL tender agreement 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 July 21, 2020.
