Chippewa Falls, WI- The Chippewa Steel of the NAHL has announced the signing of defenseman Deven Boldway to a tender agreement.
Boldway played in 33 games for the Ogden Mustangs of the USPHL during the 20-21 season. The 6’1 181-pound defenseman recorded 9 goals and 24 assists. Deven was recently named a 20-21 USPHL Mountain Division All-Star.
“Deven is a great skater who spent a year in junior hockey and had tremendous success. He is a character player who will fit into our locker room and contribute on the ice as well. He is a physical player who does a great job defending,” commented Steel Head Coach & General Manager Mike Janda.
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.
