Texas forward Cooper signs NAHL tender
May 6, 2020
The Texas Brahmas of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that forward Jack Cooper has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Lone Star Brahmas of the NAHL’s South Division.
Cooper, 19, just completed his second season playing junior hockey in the NA3HL. The 6’1/170 lbs. native Camino Vista, California, led the Brahmas in scoring during the 2019-20 season with 73 points (25 goals, 48 assists) in 47 regular season games.
Cooper was named the NA3HL South Division Most Valuable Player and Forward of the Year this past season for his efforts.
Last season, Cooper had a very good rookie campaign as he helped the Brahmas capture the Fraser Cup Championship. He finished 2nd in team scoring with 63 points in 47 games played.
Overall in two seasons in the NA3HL, Cooper has recorded 136 points in 94 career games.
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 July 21, 2020.
