Chippewa Falls, WI – The Chippewa Steel of the NAHL have announced the signing of Nick Wieben to a tender contract for the 2020-2021 season. Nick is a forward from Mankato, MN.

Nick played in 25 games for the New Ulm Steel during the 2019-2020 season. The 5’10 165-pound forward recorded 33 points, scoring 19 goals and dishing out 14 assists. Prior to playing with New Ulm, he spent time with the Rochester Monarchs and Lone Star Brahmas last season.

“Nick is a fast player that has the ability to impact the game all over the ice. He brings energy and has the ability to produce offensively,” stated Steel Head Coach Carter Foguth.

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.
