Albuquerque, NM – The New Mexico Ice Wolves are proud to announce that the team has signed forward Jack Cohen to a tender contract for the 2020-21 season.
The 2001-born Miami native has spent the past two seasons playing for the the Florida Alliance 18U in the NAHL-affiliated NAPHL 18U. After leading the team in points (11g, 9a) during his first season with the Alliance, Cohen kept up his streak during the 2019-20 season once again averaging over a point per game and leading the team (18g, 17a in 32 games). He also earned a spot on the NAPHL 18U First All-Star Team(Elite Division) after an impressive season and playoff run.
NM Ice Wolves head coach Phil Fox is looking forward to Cohen joining the Ice Wolves organization. “I am very excited about signing Jack to a tender. I watched a lot of film on him and I really like his game,” Fox said. “He competes in all three zones and has great offensive instincts. Jack can make plays under pressure and will make the players around him better also. We can’t wait for Jack to join us in New Mexico.”
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.
