Bulls forward Florian signs NAHL tender
March 20, 2014
The North Iowa Bulls of the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) are pleased to announce that forward Dominik Florian has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Coulee Region Chill. The Chill play in the NAHL’s Midwest Division.
The 18-year-old native of Vlasim, Czech Republic is in his first season of junior hockey and in the NA3HL. In just 16 games with the Bulls this season, Florian (6’1/190) has 11 goals and 16 assist for 27 points and is a +26 in those contests. He also picked up five assists in North Iowa’s two-game sweep of Twin City in the West Division Semi-Finals.
Florian began the 2013-14 season with the Austin Bruins in the NAHL. Florian appeared in 25 games with the Bruins and recorded 10 points (3 goals, 7 assists).
Previous to this season, Florian spent and past couple of seasons playing high school hockey in Wisconsin and Midget AAA hockey in Canada.
Florian is the second player from this year’s North Iowa squad to sign an NAHL tender, joining teammate Chris Amsden (Minnesota Magicians), and tenth 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.
