Rochester forward Johnson signs NAHL tender
The Rochester Grizzlies, proud members of the NA3HL, have announced that forward Adam Johnson has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Minot Minotauros of the NAHL's Central Division for the 2022-23 season.
In 17 games this season the 6’0/170 lbs. native of Mahtomedi, Minnesota native has tallied seven goals and 10 assists for 17 points and a +22 rating, and is averaging 1.06 PT/G.
“We are grateful for the opportunities our guys have gotten in the past couple of weeks with the Magicians, Wilderness, Minotauros, and Bruins,” stated Head Coach and General Manager, Chris Ratzloff. “It shows how doing things right and working hard creates opportunities. It also shows how team success highlights the talent of individual players."
Johnson played in three games for the Minotauros back in December. He made his NAHL debut during the 2020-21 season with the Minnesota Magicians.
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 two (2) tenders exclusively used on players from the NA3HL - plus or minus any trades - which became active on November 1st. Tendered players are not eligible for the 2022 NAHL Draft.
