Northstar 18U forward Hanson signs NAHL tender
The Northstar Knights of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) are pleased to announce that 18U forward Calvin Hanson has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Bismarck Bobcats of the NAHL’s Central Division.
Hanson, 17, is in his first season playing in the NAPHL for the Knights. The 5’9/150 lbs. native of Hallock, Minnesota has recorded 11 points in 10 NAPHL games so far during the 2020-21 season.
In 11 games outside the NAPHL, he has recorded 12 points.
Prior to playing in the NAPHL this season, he spent four years playing high school hockey for Kittson Central in Minnesota.
He is the first from the Northstar 18U team who has signed an NAHL tender 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 2021 NAHL Draft.
