Omaha 18U forward Sorensen signs NAHL tender
The NAPHL’s T1ER League is pleased to announce that Omaha Mastery 18U forward Kyle Sorensen has signed an NAHL tender agreement for the 2024-25 season with the Aberdeen Wings of the NAHL’s Central Division.
Sorensen, 17, is in his second season playing in the NAPHL’s T1ER League for Omaha. The 5’9/157 lbs. right-handed forward from Council Bluffs, IA spent last season with the Omaha Mastery 16U & 18U NAPHL teams. He had a combined 9 goals and 1 assists (10 pts) in 16 games played.
So far during the 2023-24 season, Sorensen is tied for the T1ER 18U scoring lead with 13 points (9 goals, 4 assists) in 8 games played.
“Really excited to add Kyle Sorensen as another piece of the Aberdeen Wings future. Kyle is a very skilled forward that plays with a lot of speed. Kyle currently plays for the Omaha Mastery U18 Team with current teammate and Wings tender Tyler Dahms. Kyle is a very good hockey player and comes from great parents as well. Very excited to see his speed and skill translate into our league,” said Wings Assistant Coach Eric Hirschhaut.
“I am really excited to be part of the Aberdeen Wings program,” said Sorensen.
He is the second player from the Omaha Mastery 18U team so far this season who has signed an NAHL tender.
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, which include two (2) tenders exclusively used on players from the T1ER - plus or minus any trades - which became active on November 1st. Tendered players are not eligible for the 2024 NAHL Draft.
