Jersey Shore forward Vaysberg signs NAHL tender
December 20, 2016
The Jersey Shore Wildcats of the NA3HL are proud to announce that forward David Vaysberg has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Minnesota Wilderness of the NAHL’s Central Division.
The native of Matawan, New Jersey, who just turned 16-years-old on December 15th, currently leads the Wildcats in scoring this season with has 9 goals with 26 assists for a total of 35 points in 33 games and a + 9 rating with the Wildcats this season.
Vaysberg (5’10/170) is the first member of the Wildcats to sign an NAHL tender this season.
“David is clearly heading out the right way for his future. Last season he was a practice player for us and the training really helped him get a good jump-start this season,” said Wildcats General Manager Eric Brule.
“He still has a few things to improve upon, but for a young player his maturity mentally and physically has improved a lot and I am not surprised to see that with the hard work and attention to details he puts including going the extra mile in the gym. I am glad to see it is starting to pay off and he still has a few more months to get to the level he needs to be.”
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 became active on Nov. 1. Tendered players are not eligible for the NAHL draft, which will be held on June 6, 2017.
