Maine Nordiques 18U forward Ceritano signs NAHL tender
The Maine Nordiques Academy of the NAPHL is pleased to announce that 18U forward Alex Ceritano has signed a North American Hockey League tender agreement with the Wichita Falls Warriors of the NAHL’s South Division.
Ceritano, 18, has appeared in six NAPHL games so far during the 2021-22 season. Th 5’10/180 native of Royal Oak, MI, had posted 5 goals in those six games, which came during the events in November and December.
Prior to coming to the Nordiques Academy, Ceritano played high school hockey for Cranbrook Kingswood School in Michigan. He also played on the MDHL All-Star teams, which included an NAPHL event during the 2019-20 season.
He is the first player from the Nordiques 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.
