Granite City defenseman Halliday signs NAHL tender
February 27, 2020
The Granite City Lumberjacks of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that defenseman Tal Halliday has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Minot Minotauros of the NAHL’s Central Division.
Halliday, 19, is in his first season of playing junior hockey in the NA3HL. The 6’0/176 lbs. native of Roseau, Minnesota, has 20 points (4 goals, 16 assists) in 28 games played with the Lumberjacks so far this season.
Halliday began the season playing in the NAHL for the St. Cloud Blizzard in September. He then appeared in six games for the Minotauros in late December and into January. In nine NAHL games played this season, he has recorded one point.
Prior to playing in the NA3HL and NAHL this season, Halliday played high school hockey in Minnesota for Roseau High School.
He is the 11th NA3HL player this season who has signed an NAHL tender for the 2020-21 season.
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 June 2, 2020.
