Philadelphia 18U forward Howat signs NAHL tender
The Philadelphia Little Flyers of the NAPHL are pleased to announce that 18U forward Koby Howat has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Maine Nordiques of the NAHL’s East Division.
Howat, 19, just completed his fourth season of playing in the NAPHL and second season with the Little Flyers organization. The 5’10/180 lbs. native of Honey Brook, PA, played for the Little Flyers 18U team in 2020-21, helping his club to a Runner-Up finish in the Dixon Cup Championship.
During the NAPHL regular season, Howat had three points in eight games. In the Playoffs, he stepped his game up with six points in six games played.
Howat also spent the 2019-20 season with the Little Flyers 18U team, recording 19 points in 16 NAPHL games.
Prior to playing for the Little Flyers, Howat spent two seasons playing in the NAPHL for the Valley Forge Minutemen 16U team.
Overall in 42 career NAPHL regular season games, Howat has recorded 30 points.
He is the fifth player from the Little Flyers 18U team who has signed an NAHL tender for the 2021-22 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.
