Meijer AAA 18U forward Schram signs NAHL tender
April 17, 2020
The Meijer AAA hockey organization of the NAPHL are pleased to announce that 18U forward Carter Schram has signed a North American Hockey League tender agreement with the Topeka Pilots of the NAHL’s South Division.
Schram, 17, just completed his second season playing in the NAPHL for Meijer. The 5’11/181 lbs. native of Lansing, Michigan, was the leading scorer for the Meijer 18U team during both the regular season and playoffs.
During the 2019-20 regular season, Schram had 14 points (8 goals, 6 assists) in 16 games played. During the Dixon Cup Playoffs, Schram led Meijer in scoring with nine points as they captured the 18U Dixon Cup Championship.
It was Schram’s second Dixon Cup Championship in a row as he helped the Meijer 16U team to the Dixon Cup in 2018-19.
Overall in two NAPHL seasons, Schram has played in 32 games and recorded 22 points. He is the 6th player from the Meijer 18U team who has signed an NAHL tender 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 July 21, 2020.
