Meijer AAA 16U forward Muzzatti signs NAHL tender
The Meijer AAA hockey organization of the NAPHL are pleased to announce that 16U forward Sutter Muzzatti has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Austin Bruins of the NAHL’s Central Division.
Muzzatti, 17, completed his second season competing in the NAPHL with Meijer AAA during the 2019-20 season. The 6’5/209 lbs. native of Okemos, Michigan, led the Meijer AAA 16U team in scoring this past season with 26 points (10 goals, 16 assists).
Muzzatti also appeared in 20 total games with the Meijer AAA 18U team during the 2019-20 season, recording 19 points.
Muzzatti was drafted by the Muskegon Lumberjacks in the 2019 USHL Draft and also made his USHL debut this past season, appearing in two games.
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.
