Rochester forward Johnston signs NAHL tender

June 16, 2023

The Rochester Grizzlies of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that forward Adler Johnston has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Austin Bruins of the NAHL’s Central Division.

Johnston, 19, just finished up his first season in junior hockey, playing both in the NAHL and NA3HL. The Albert Lea, Minnesota native started his season with the Austin Bruins, making his debut on the 16th of September against the Danbury Jr. Hat Tricks. Throughout 23 NAHL games, he produced three assists. 

Johnston made his NA3HL debut on the 3rd of December with Rochester, recording his first point in that game against the Peoria Mustangs. The 6’00 200 lbs. forward played 6 games in the month of February for the Grizzlies, recording a goal and an assist in those games. He also found the back of the net twice in 5 games throughout the 2023 Fraser Cup Playoffs. 

Prior to playing junior hockey, Johnston was a member of the Northstar Knights and Sioux Falls Power programs in the NAPHL. He suited up for the Power in the 2019-20 campaign and played for the Knights the following two seasons.

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.
