CHIPPEWA FALLS, WI – Another tender signing as been announced as the Steel are pleased to welcome defenseman Joseph Peters to the organization!
Peters (18) most recently played with Mount St. Charles Academy 18U AAA for 2020-2022. There he tallied 36 points, including a 26 in his final season.
Standing at 6’2″ and 209 pounds, Peters bring an a large frame coupled with physicality. The proof is in the pudding with 130 penalty minutes which puts Peters top ten in the 18U AAA league.

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.
The Steel are excited to bring him to Chippewa Valley and wish him congratulations!
