The Northstar Knights of the NAPHL are pleased to announce that 18U defenseman Nathan Mulder has signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Lone Star Brahmas in the NAHL’s South Division.
Mulder, 19, is in his third season playing in the NAPHL and second season with the Knights 18U team. The 5’11/190 lbs. native of West Lafayette, IN, appeared in 24 NAPHL regular-season games during the 2021-22 season and had six points.
He also played in all six Dixon Cup Playoff games, helping the Knights to their second straight Dixon Cup title. Overall in 41 games played this season, Mulder has recorded 13 points.
During the 2020-21 season, Mulder appeared in 12 NAPHL games and had six points.
Prior to playing for the Knights, Mulder spent the 2019-20 season playing in the NAPHL for the Indy Jr. Fuel 16U team.
He is the 11th player from the Knights 18U team who has signed an NAHL tender so far 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 November 1st. Tendered players are not eligible for the 2022 NAHL Draft.
