Atlanta defenseman Crouch signs NAHL tender
The Atlanta Capitals of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that defenseman Caleb Crouch has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Philadelphia Rebels of the NAHL’s East Division.
Crouch, 17, just completed his first season of playing junior hockey in the NA3HL with the Capitals. The 6’0/190 lbs. native of Brighton, MI, appeared in 43 regular season games during the 2021-22 season and recorded nine points (3 goals, 6 assists).
Prior to playing in the NA3HL, Crouch spent one season playing high school hockey in Michigan for Brighton High in addition to playing in the MDHL.
He is the second Capitals player this season who has signed an NAHL tender for next 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 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.
