Albuquerque, NM – The New Mexico Ice Wolves are excited to announce that they have signed 2000-born forward Philip Pallin to a tender agreement for the 2020-21 season.
Pallin spent the 2019-2020 season playing for Timrå IK J20 in the J20 SuperElit, Sweden’s highest-level junior league. The 6-foot-2 Swede racked up 26 points (15g, 11a) in 42 games.
Ice Wolves head coach Phil Fox described Pallin as a “dynamic 200-foot player who will bring depth and experience to our club. He has size, speed, and good offensive instincts, which will fit in nicely down here in New Mexico.”
Pallin is looking forward to making the move to North America to join the reigning NAHL Organization of the Year. “It’s going to be fun to be a part of the New Mexico Ice Wolves this season. I have heard a lot of good things about the organization and I like the way Phil Fox looks at leadership. I hope to bring as much as I can to the team and help the team win a lot of games and also develop as an individual and a player.”
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 – plus or minus any trades – which become active on Nov. 1. Tendered players are not eligible for the NAHL draft.
