CarShield AAA 18U forward Howse signs NAHL tender
January 1, 2020
The CarShield AAA hockey club of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) are pleased to announce that 18U forward Riley Howse has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Jamestown Rebels of the NAHL’s East Division.
Howse, 17, is in his first year with CarShield. The 6’0/174 lbs. native of St. Louis, Missouri, had a breakout first event with the team as he recorded five points in four games during the NAPHL event in December.
Howse began the 2019-20 season playing in the NAHL for the Springfield Jr. Blues, appearing in five games in September and October.
He is the second player from the CarShield 18U team who has signed an NAHL tender so far 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 2, 2020.
