The Reapers Hockey Association of the NAPHL are pleased to announce that 18U forward Edward Paulissian has signed a North American Hockey League tender agreement with the Kenai River Brown Bears of the NAHL’s Midwest Division.
Paulissian, 17, is in his first season playing in the NAPHL for the Reapers. The 6’0/195 lbs. native of Northbrook, IL, is currently 4th in team scoring so far during the 2021-22 season with 18 points (8 goals, 10 assists) in 20 games played to date.
Overall in 31 games played with the Reapers this season, Paulissian has 25 points.
In previous seasons, Paulissian has played for the Pittsburgh Penguins Elite, Chicago Mission, and Chicago Young Americans.
He is the second player from the Reapers 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 November 1st. Tendered players are not eligible for the 2022 NAHL Draft.
