Chippewa Falls, WI- The Chippewa Steel of the NAHL has announced the signing of forward Nick Sajevic to a tender agreement.

Sajevic played 19 games with Gentry Academy in Minnesota during the 20-21 season.  The 5’11 170-pound forward scored 25 goals and dished out 21 assists.

“Nick is an exciting player to watch. He can put the puck in the net and comes from a winning background. He will help our team in many ways next season, his commitment to getting better and work ethic will make everyone around him better,” said Director of Player Personnel Mike Fazio.

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.
