The Omaha AAA Hockey Club, proud members of the NAPHL, are pleased to announce that 18U forward Jaden Anderson has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Odessa Jackalopes of the NAHL’s South Division.
Anderson, 17, just completed his third season with the Omaha AAA program and first season at the 18U level. The native of Aurora, Colorado was 2nd on the 18U team in scoring during the season with 31 points in 22 NAPHL games. He also had three points in five playoff games.

"Jaden is extremely talented and a great athlete. He was a big piece of our team this year and he had an outstanding season for our 18U team,” said Omaha head coach David Wilkie.
Anderson is the 12th player from this year’s Omaha 18U team who has signed 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 on June 7, 2016.
