New Jersey 18U forward Solovey signs NAHL tender
The New Jersey Jr. Titans, proud members of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL), have announced that 18U forward Justin Solovey has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the New Jersey Titans of the NAHL’s East Division.
Solovey, 17, had 22 total points (11 goals and 11 assists) this season between the Atlantic Youth Hockey (5 goals and 7 assists in 11 AYHL games) and North American Prospect Hockey League (6 goals and 4 assists in 10 NAPHL games). The Holmdel, NJ native also played in four games with the NAHL Titans as an affiliate player earlier in the season earning two points (1 goal and 1 assists).
The 6’2/180 lb. left-handed shot has an NCAA Division 1 ice hockey commitment to Boston College back on February 10, 2022.
“I am very excited about the possibility of getting the opportunity to play at the next level for the New Jersey Titans in the NAHL and becoming part of their winning culture,” stated Solovey.
“Justin played with us as affiliate this year and was extremely effective. He is one of our own who has grown and developed during his time as a Titan in our youth program. Justin is an extremely talented young forward who plays the game with the hard skill as we look for in our players. We are excited to watch Justin continue to grow and progress as he continues on his path to Boston College,” stated Titans head coach and general manager Craig Doremus.
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 November 1st. Tendered players are not eligible for the 2022 NAHL Draft
