Northstar 18U forward Peterson signs NAHL tender
The Northstar Knights of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) are pleased to announce that 18U forward Kade Peterson has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the St. Cloud Norsemen of the NAHL’s Central Division.
The 6’0/170 lbs. native of West Fargo, ND, will join the Norsemen after a pair of seasons at Northstar Christian Academy. The 17-year-old forward has tallied 18 points, nine of which are goals, during the 18U AAA season and seven points in nine games for the NAPHL side during the 2020-21 season.
“The Norsemen are extremely excited to have Kade sign a tender,” said Norsemen Associate Head Coach Casey Mignone. “Kade is a talented young forward, with a huge upside. His character and work ethic are second to none. We are excited to see what the future holds.”
During the 2019-20 campaign, Peterson had five points in 16 NAPHL games and four points in the 2020 Dixon Cup Playoffs.
He is the sixth player from the Knights 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 2021 NAHL Draft.
