Rocky Mountain 18U forward Mitchell signs NAHL tender
March 8, 2016
The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders, proud members of the NAPHL, are pleased to announce that 18U forward David Mitchell (5’11/170) has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Kenai River Brown Bears. The Brown Bears are members of the NAHL’s Midwest Division.
Mitchell, 18, is in his fourth year playing for the RoughRiders and second season playing at the 18U level. Mitchell, a native of Westminster, Colorado, was one of the captains for the 18U squad this year.
In 25 NAPHL regular season games, Mitchell had 17 points, which ranked 3rd on the team. His 10 goals ranked 2nd.
He is the third Rocky Mountain RoughRiders 18U player this season to sign an NAHL tender.
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 NAHL draft, which will be held in June of 2016.
