New Jersey 18U forward Wongus signs NAHL tender
The New Jersey Jr. Titans Hockey Program, proud members of the North American Prospects Hockey Legaue is pleased to announce that 18U forward Ethan Wongus has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the NAHL’s New Jersey Titans in the East Division.

The 5’10/170 lbs. native of Edmonton, AB was named an affiliate player for the organization’s flagship team back on February 16, 2021. An affiliate player agreement enables youth players to participate in a certain amount of NAHL games in a season.
“I really appreciate the opportunity coach Craig Doremus has given me,” stated Wongus. “I also really want to thank Coach Haviland for supporting me and helping grow, not only within the organization but as a person. I’m excited about the possibility of furthering my hockey career and playing collegiate hockey.”
“I very happy for Wongo to be tendered by our NA Titans program,” stated Titans President George Haviland. “Ethan is a very talented hockey player but even better person. It has been great watching him grow the last of couple of years, and I know he as what it takes to play at the next level. I’m excited to see how he does. Ethan is another example of the Titans organization promoting within and staying true to our mission statement of helping players get to the next level. We currently have three players on the NAHL team’s roster who came up through our program was well as another who has appeared in a couple of games so far this year. We are practicing what we preach.”
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 November 1st. Tendered players are not eligible for the 2022 NAHL Draft.
