CarShield 18U defenseman Decker signs NAHL tender
The NAPHL’s T1ER League is pleased to announce that CarShield AAA 18U defenseman Mason Decker has signed an NAHL tender agreement for the 2024-25 season with the Lone Star Brahmas in the NAHL’s South Division.
Decker, 18, is in his first season playing for CarShield. The 6’2/200 lbs. native of Rochester, MN, has appeared in 8 NAPHL T1ER games to date and recorded two points.
Overall, Decker has appeared in 24 games during the 2023-24 season and recorded 14 points.
Decker previously played in the NAPHL in the FALL League with the Austin Bruins 16U team during the 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons and with the Bruins 18U team during the 2022-23 season.
He also played high school hockey for two seasons in Minnesota for Rochester John Marshall High.
He is the third player from the CarShield AAA 18U team who has signed an NAHL tender so far this season.
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.
