Blanchard and Cooper sign in NA3HL

03/22/2018, 3:45pm PDT
By Jr. Sharks Hockey Department

The San Jose Jr. Sharks a proud to announce that Tyler Blanchard and Jack Cooper have signed a Tender with the Texas Brahmas in the NA3HL!

Blanchard and Cooper have been the cornerstone of the 18AA team all season. Blanchard led all of CAHA in scoring with 18 Goals and 42 Points. Cooper followed behind, finishing 3rd in CAHA with 12 Goals and 28 Points. Blanchard and Cooper also helped lead the 16AA team to the State Championship last season.

Blanchard plans to attend TCU in the fall and play for the Brahmas. While Cooper will attend a local Community College. Both players played their entire youth hockey with the Jr. Sharks! Blanchard played 11 years in Teal, while Cooper played 10!

The NA3HL is a Tier III junior hockey league with teams all over the country. The Brahmas are in the South Division and consistently send players to NCAA hockey and Tier II junior leagues. For more information on the Brahmas club, click here.

Congratulations to Tyler, Jack and their families on this accomplishment! Good luck in Texas!

What is a 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 - plus or minus any trades - which become active on Nov. 1. Tendered players are not eligible for the NAHL draft.
