Alexandria forward Strong signs NAHL tender
March 3, 2020
The Alexandria Blizzard of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that forward Caleb Strong has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Minnesota Wilderness of the NAHL’s Central Division.
Strong, 19, is in his second season of playing junior hockey in the NA3HL. The 5’7/165 lbs. native of Alexandria, Minnesota has 26 points (8 goals, 18 assists) in 16 games played with the Blizzard so far this season.
Strong is in his second season with the Blizzard and prior to playing in the NA3HL he played high school hockey in Minnesota for Alexandria Area High.
He is the 12th 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.
