Biggby 18U forward Marquez signs NAHL tender
The Biggby Coffee AAA organization of the NAPHL is pleased to announce that 18U forward Michael Marquez has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Amarillo Wranglers of the NAHL’s South Division.
Marquez, 19, just completed his first season of playing in the NAPHL for Biggby. The 5’11/180 lbs. native of Upland, CA, appeared in 19 games during the 2021-22 NAPHL regular season and recorded 9 points (3 goals, 6 assists). He also played in 6 Dixon Cup Playoff games and recorded two points.
Marquez made his NAHL debut during the 2021-22 season with the Wranglers on November 7, 2021. He has played in four games with the Wranglers this season.
Prior to playing for Biggby in the NAPHL, Marquez played one season for the Elite Hockey Academy and one season with the Anaheim Jr. Ducks.
He is the 6th player from the Biggby 18U team who has signed an NAHL tender for the 2022-23 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.
