Sioux Falls 18U forward Quast signs NAHL tender
December 26, 2019
The Sioux Falls Power of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) are pleased to announce that 18U forward Joseph Quast has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights of the NAHL’s East Division.
Quast, 18, is in his first season of playing in the NAPHL for the Power. The 5’11/170 lbs. native of White Bear Lake, Minnesota, has recorded 13 points in 16 NAPHL games played so far during the 2019-20 regular season.
Previous to playing in the NAPHL, Quast played three seasons of high school hockey in Minnesota for the Hill-Murray School. He also made his USHL debut earlier this season with the Waterloo Black Hawks on December 13th.
He is the third player from the Sioux Falls 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.
