Jr. Blues forward McGlynn signs NAHL tender
February 7, 2014
It's been a good week for St. Louis Jr. Blues and NA3HL forward Andrew McGlynn. The 16-year-old from St. Louis was named to the NA3HL Central Division Top Prospects team over the weekend and capped it off with a tender offer from the Springfield Jr. Blues of the NAHL.
McGlynn was outstanding in front of the Springfield coach in attendance this past weekend when he notched four points in two games including a goal and two assists in a 4-3 loss.
Head Coach Chris Flaugher said, "Andy has continued to improve all season. Even as a 16-year-old, he can play with finesse and grit, depending on the situation.”
McGlynn is 5th in overall team scoring, but 3rd in points per game averaging just at a point a game. In 29 games played this season, McGlynn has 30 points, which includes 15 goals and 15 assists. He leads the team in game-winning goals with four. McGlynn hopes to play NCAA Division I hockey in the future.
McGlynn is the second player from this year’s Jr. Blues squad to sign an NAHL tender and seventh NA3HL player overall.
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 one tender exclusively used on players from the NA3HL - plus or minus any trades - which become active on Nov. 1. Tendered players are not eligible for the NAHL draft, which will be held on June 3, 2014.
