New Hampshire 18U defenseman Dann signs NAHL tender
The New Hampshire Avalanche of the NAPHL T1ER League are pleased to announce that 18U defenseman Ryan Dann has signed a NAHL tender agreement with the Oklahoma Warriors of the NAHL’s South Division.
Dann, 18, is in his third season playing for the Avalanche in the NAPHL. The 6’2/187 lbs. native of Windham, NH, has appeared in 12 NAPHL games so far during the 2022-23 season and recorded 5 points.
During the 2021-22 season, Dann appeared in 17 games during the regular season and recorded 7 points. He also had four points in four Dixon Cup Playoff games.
He also played in the 2022 NAHL 18U Top Prospects Tournament for the NAPHL team where he had a goal and an assist at the event.
During the 2019-20 season, Dann appeared in four NAPHL games for the Avalanche 16U team.
He is the first player from the Avalanche 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 November 1st. Tendered players are not eligible for the 2023 NAHL Draft.
