Jeremy Todd, a 92 born former defenseman with the Jr B Penguins and resident of Chardon, OH inked the very first Tender issued by the Jr A Penguins. With the recent acquisition of the CSHL by the NAHL, the League (who has since changed their name to the NA3HL or 3HL) has implemented several new operating rules including one that enables the 3HL clubs to now offer two Tenders each season to student athletes.
Jeremy is no stranger to the Jr Penguins. He began playing for the Pens on their Tier I U16 team in 08-09 and followed that with two seasons at the Jr B Level competing in the Continental Hockey Association (CHA) and was the team Captain last season. “As one of the team’s leaders last season, Jeremy provided a calming influence to the younger players on the team. During his time with us, he grew into a solid defenseman who played with poise. Jeremy was an asset to his teammates and we were lucky to have him with us for the last three seasons.” said Head Coach Brian Cersosimo.
Right behind Jeremy was a player from Texas who also signed his Tender offer. Adam Steranko (pictured below), a forward (94) who played with the Houston Wild Midget Minor Prospects last season also signed on for the new season. Of course, both will be attending the tryouts to close their deal for the new season.
With the upcoming NAHL Draft (this week) followed by the 3HL Draft on June 2nd, these are exciting times for the Club. The Staff will all gather tomorrow to follow the NAHL Draft on twitter while planning their own selections.
