JANESVILLE, WI – The Janesville Jets, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), have signed forward Jayden Price to a tender contract, securing his NAHL rights for the 2019-20 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.
Price (6-0/170) is a 2001-born left-handed forward from Dove Canyon, California, about 30 miles southeast of Anaheim. Price has developed in the Shattuck St. Mary’s system since the 2016-17 season, when he posted 64 points in 54 games of Midget AA hockey. He played Midget AAA the following year, skating 10 games of NAPHL 18U action before playing Midget USHS-Prep this year. In 19 games this season, Price has scored seven goals and added 10 assists for 17 points.
“I’m very excited to have the chance to play for such a great organization in Janesville,” said Price. “I can’t wait to throw on a Jets uniform and get to work.”
“Jayden has been a player on the Jets’ radar for the past two seasons. He has had a tremendous career at Shattuck, and we as a coaching staff are excited to see him play for the Jets next season.” — Corey Leivermann, Jets Assistant Coach & Director of Scouting
Becoming a great development program for NCAA hockey means building for the future while focusing on the season at hand. After a home split with the Minnesota Wilderness, the Jets host the Fairbanks Ice Dogs for a single game this Friday, December 7th. Tickets are available online or at any Lions Quick Mart location in Janesville. All NAHL regular season and postseason games are broadcast live on HockeyTV.com.
