March 10, 2015
The Omaha AAA Hockey Club, proud members of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL), are pleased to announce that forward Tycho Falk from the 18U team has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Springfield Jr Blues.
Falk (6'5/205) is in his second season playing for the Omaha 18U team, which finished tied for 2nd in the NAPHL standings this season and was Runner-Up in the NAPHL Playoffs.
The native of Des Moines, Iowa played in 24 NAPHL regular season games, recording 14 points. He also added a goal in five NAPHL playoff games. Falk, 19, also has contributed 22 goals and 25 assists in 72 games played overall for the Omaha AAA 18U team.
In 47 career NAPHL regular season games, Falk has 43 career points.
Falk appeared in both the 2015 NAPHL 18U All-Star Game in January in Troy, Michigan, as well as, the 2015 NAPHL Top Prospects Tournament in Ann Arbor, Michigan in February.
Falk is the seventh player from the Omaha 18U team to sign an NAHL this 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 NAPHL - 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 9, 2015.
