Northstar 18U forward Menghini signs NAHL tender
The Northstar Knights of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) are pleased to announce that 18U forward Anthony Menghini has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Austin Bruins of the NAHL’s Central Division.
Menghini, 18, is in his second season playing in the NAPHL for the Knights 18U team. The 5’10/185 lbs. native of Brainerd, MN, has appeared in seven NAPHL games so far in 2020-21 and recorded 13 points (7 goals, 6 assists).
Menghini was named the Apex Learning Virtual School Peak Performer for 18U Offense back in September when he had 11 points in four games during the month.
Menghini played for the Knights 18U team during the 2019-20 season, recording 21 points in 16 NAPHL games. He was also named to and played in the 2019-20 18U NAPHL All-Star Game. During the Dixon Cup Playoffs, he tied for the team scoring lead as he led the Knights all the way to the 18U Championship Game.
He is the fifth player from the Knights 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 2021 NAHL Draft.
