New Jersey 18U forward O'Hare signs NAHL tender
April 9, 2020
The New Jersey Jr. Titans of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) are pleased to announce that 18U forward Liam O’Hare has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Odessa Jackalopes of the NAHL’s South Division.
O’Hare, 19, has played two seasons with the Titans National Premier team in which he has 69 points (13 goals and 56 assists) in 60 games.
This past season the 5’8”, 150 lbs. native of Barcelona, Spain native had 33 points (6 goals and 27 assists) in 30 games. He had 21 points (4 goals and 17 assists) in 24 AYHL games and twelve points (2 goals and 10 assists) in six NAPHL games.
“Offensive output is something that obviously jumps out to us initially,” said Jackalopes interim head coach Adam Phillips. “As we evaluate the player further, we make sure all parts of his game will allow him to have success at the NAHL level.”
O’Hare has represented Spain in World Championships at both the U18 and World Junior levels.
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.
