January 8, 2020
The Colorado Spring Tigers of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) are pleased to announce that 18U forward Tylor Greene has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the New Mexico Ice Wolves of the NAHL’s South Division.
Greene, 18, in his fourth year with the Tigers in the NAPHL and has played his entire youth career with the Colorado Springs club. The 5’9/150 lbs. native of Colorado Springs, Colorado, has seven points in 16 NAPHL games this season.
Greene has also played in the NAPHL 16U All-Star Game in 2018 and the 2019 NAHL 18U Top Prospects Tournament for the NAPHL West Team.
Greene made his NAHL debut with the Ice Wolves on December 31st, which saw the team grab a win and two points to finish the 2019 calendar year.
“I want to thank the Ice Wolves for making the experience so fun and memorable. I would also like to thank the Tigers organization for everything they have done to help me. This organization helped me to become a better hockey player and person,” said Greene.
“We want to congratulate Tylor and his family on all his accomplishments not only with New Mexico but within our organization as well," said 18U head coach Kevin Holmstrom. "Ty will bring the same high skill set and excellent work ethic to the Ice Wolves we see every day and we are excited for him and the opportunity.”
Greene is the second player from the Tigers 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.
