JANESVILLE, WI – The Janesville Jets, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), have signed forward Jared Scott to a tender contract, securing his NAHL rights for the 2020-21 season.
A tender is a contract a team offers a prospect to reserve his rights for the upcoming NAHL season. When a player signs a tender, his rights belong to that team within the NAHL, and he may not be recruited or drafted by any other member club. Each team is granted 10 tenders, which became active on November 1, and which they can either use on a prospect or trade to another NAHL club.
Scott (5-9/154) is an 18-year-old forward from Kenosha, Wisconsin. He is a seasoned product of the Milwaukee Jr. Admirals, having played two seasons of each bantam, U16, and U18 hockey with the program. In 22 games this season, Scott tallied 17 goals and 29 points, leading the T1EHL’s 18U division in both scoring categories.
The USHL’s Waterloo Black Hawks selected Scott in the 13th round of last May’s Phase II Draft. In December, Scott skated five games with Waterloo. He earned his first junior hockey point with a primary assist on the game-winning goal in a 5-3 win over the Omaha Lancers on December 13.
“I am very excited to take a huge step in my hockey career and sign with the Janesville Jets,” said Scott. “I’m excited to be with this organization and learn more about the game.”
“Jared is a high-energy player with lightning-fast speed. He shoots out of a cannon and is tenacious on the puck in the defensive and offensive ends. Jared has developed every year of his career and is committed to a high level of excellence. This fights right in with Janesville..” — Jets assistant coach Lennie Childs
