Alexandria defenseman Powell signs NAHL tender
January 29, 2019
The Alexandria Blizzard of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that defenseman Jack Powell has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Aberdeen Wings of the NAHL’s Central Division.
Powell, 19, is in his second stint playing for the Blizzard in the NA3HL. So far this season, the 5’11/181 lbs. native of Alexandria, Minnesota, had two points in four games played after joining the Blizzard earlier in January.
Powell spent the first half of the season with the Wings in the NAHL, recording three points in 11 games played.
Powell played in six NA3HL games with the Blizzard during the 2016-17 prior to his high school season. Powell played three years for the Alexandria Area High School program where he had 52 points in 70 career games.
He is the first player from this year’s Blizzard roster to sign an NAHL tender.
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 4, 2019.
