FAIRPORT, NY — The Rochester Jr. Americans announced they have tendered forward Brayton Frick.
Frick, listed at 5’11”, was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In 2018, Frick began playing for the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers where he tallied 77 points in 47 games over the course of two seasons. In 2020, he joined the Pittsburgh Penguins Elite program where he also spent two seasons. Finally this past season, Frick played in the NCDC playing for the Islanders Hockey Club. As a rookie, he put up 11 goals and 18 points in 46 games.
Frick was born in 2005. His relatively young age gives him three seasons of NAHL eligibility if necessary.
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. Tendered players are not eligible for the NAHL draft.
The Jr. Amerks are proud to welcome Brayton and would like to wish him congratulations!
