May 9, 2016
The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders, proud members of the NAPHL, are pleased to announce that 18U goalie Cody Christofferson (6’4”/200) has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Amarillo Bulls. The Bulls are members of the NAHL’s South Division.
Christofferson, 18, is in his fifth year playing for the RoughRiders and first season playing at the 18U level. Christofferson has been in the net for the RoughRiders all the way through his development playing on the Riders 13U, 14U, 16U and 18U teams.
In 19 NAPHL regular season games, Christofferson was 11-7-0-1 with a 1.93 GAA and .909 SV%. In 5 NAPHL playoff games, Christofferson was 4-1 with a 1.00 GAA and .960 SV%.
Christofferson was also selected to play in the 2016 NAPHL Top Prospects Tournament from May 13-15 in Edina, Minnesota, for the South Team.
He is the fourth Rocky Mountain RoughRiders 18U player this season to sign an NAHL tender. The RoughRiders would like to wish Cody the best of luck in his hockey and academic future.
A tender is a contract 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.
