The Philadelphia Little Flyers of the NAPHL are pleased to announce that 18U defenseman Chase Hannon has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Aberdeen Wings of the NAHL’s Central Division.

“Chase is a very sound defenseman that possess good vision to make the right plays,” Wings head coach Scott Langer said. “He is a physical player that is not afraid to play the tough game. He has good feet, which allows him to get out of any situations where he is under pressure, and he has the ability to score from the blue line, which makes him an element of the offense as well.”
During the 2021-22 season, Hannon appeared in 16 NAPHL games and recorded 10 points.
Hannon was recently selected to take part in the 2023 NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament where he will be playing for the NAPHL T1ER 18U Top Prospects team.

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.
