Pikes Peak 16U goalie Fessenden signs NAHL tender
June 11, 2015
The Pikes Peak Miners of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) are pleased to announce that 16U goalie David Fessenden has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Bismarck Bobcats. The Bobcats play in the NAHL’s Central Division.
Fessenden, 17, just completed his second season of playing in the NAPHL, which both have been spent with the Miners 16U team.
The native of Parker, Colorado, appeared in 13 regular season games this past season, posting a 4-8-1 record, a 3.72 goals against average and a 89.7% save percentage. Fessenden (6’4/210) also appeared in two playoff games, where he shined with a 1-0-1 record with a 1.00 goals against average on a 96.7% save percentage.
During the 2013-14 regular season, Fessenden compiled a 6-4 record with a 3.11 goals against average and an 87.5% save percentage. He also played in two playoff games that season.
During his two seasons in the NAPHL, Fessenden has played in 25 career regular season games with a career goals against average of 3.43 and a career save percentage of 88.8%.
He was the third Miners player to be tendered by an NAHL team this season and second from the 18U team.
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 was held on June 9, 2015.
