Meijer AAA 18U goalie Garvey signs NAHL tender
December 6, 2019
The Meijer AAA hockey club of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) are pleased to announce that 18U goalie Hunter Garvey has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Jamestown Rebels of the NAHL’s East Division.
Garvey, 17, is in his first season playing in the NAPHL for Meijer AAA. The 6’0/160 lbs. native of San Diego, California, is currently one of the top goalies in the NAPHL 18U Division this season.
Garvey has a perfect 6-0 record this season with a 0.83 goals against average and a .948 save percentage.
He was the NAPHL’s 18U Goaltender Peak Performer during the month of September and finished as the #3 Star for the month of November.
He is the fourth player from the Meijer AAA 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 Nov. 1. Tendered players are not eligible for the NAHL draft, which will be held on June 2, 2020.
