RoadRunners duo of Boutin, Hein sign NAHL tenders
The Texas RoadRunners of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that two players have signed NAHL tender agreements for the 2021-22 season.
Boutin, 18, had a great first season in the NA3HL. The 6’0/184 lbs. native of Chicopee, MA, led the RoadRunners in scoring during the 2020-21 season with 33 points (17 goals, 16 assists) in 35 regular season games.
Boutin was also selected to and played in the 2021 NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament for Team K1 where he recorded a goal in two games during the event.
Hein, 18, appeared in seven games during the 2020-21 season before being sidelined with an injury. The 6’4/190 lbs. native of Phoenix, AZ, posted 1-5-1 record during the regular season with a 3.70 goals against average and a .908 save percentage.
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 includes 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 2021 NAHL Draft.
