Binghamton forward Bogdziul signs NAHL tender
March 14, 2017
The Binghamton Junior Senators of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that forward Dominik Bogdziul, 18, has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights of the NAHL’s East Division.
The 5’10/165 lbs. native of Vilnius, Lithuania, enjoyed a breakout season in 2016-17 with the Junior Senators, who finished with the 3rd best record in all of USA Hockey Tier III junior hockey.
Bogdziul finished the regular season with 119 points, which ranked 4th in NA3HL scoring. That included 43 goals and 76 assists.
Earlier this season in December, Bogdziul represented his home country of Lithuania at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Division II Group A Championships, where he had 12 points in 5 games played at the event as one of the top players.
Bogdziul is no stranger to the NA3HL, having played during the 2015-16 season with the Rochester Ice Hawks. In 85 career NA3HL games, he has recorded 168 points.
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.
