New Jersey forward Johnson signs NAHL tender
The New Jersey Titans of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that forward Kurt Johnson has advanced within the organization and has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the New Jersey Titans of the NAHL’s East Division.
Johnson, 19, just completed his first season of junior hockey and first in the NA3HL. The 5’10 170 lbs. forward played in 44 games for the Titans, tallying 14 goals and 12 assists in those appearances. In those 44 games, Johnson has had six multi-point performances including a hat trick on the 15th of October.

Prior to playing in the NA3HL, Johnson played his youth years for McDowell High School as well as the Cleveland Barons AAA program.
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 2023 NAHL Draft.
