WICHITA FALLS, TX — The Wichita Falls Warriors are pleased to announce that they have signed veteran forward Sam Myers to a tender contract for the 2020-21 season.
The Washington state native is 6-foot-1 and weighs 180 pounds. He shoots left-handed and comes with plenty of junior experience, having spent the past two seasons in the NCDC. Myers began his junior career with the New Jersey Hitmen, tallying 13 goals and 13 assists in 47 games played. This past season, he played for the Connecticut Jr. Rangers, where he put up 15 goals and 22 assists in 45 games played.
“Sam is the prototype of what you need to be a competitive team in the NAHL South division; he’s older, junior experienced, competes hard, skates well, and has been a productive offensive player his last two years of junior hockey,” Warriors Head Scout Chris Pyzik said. “Sam is a versatile forward that we expect to have an immediate impact in our lineup.”
“I’m looking forward to being a part of hockey’s return to Wichita Falls,” Myers said. As a big fan of barbecue, Myers will also be able to look forward to some pretty good smoked Texas brisket.
Myers is the fourth forward and the seventh overall player tendered by the Warriors as they continue to work towards building their roster. He joins fellow forwards Luke Panchisin, Nick Urtis, Chase Davis, defenseman Lane Ruffner, and goalies Sean Guerin and Owen Bartoszkiewicz in a strong recruiting class for the upcoming 2020-21 season, the Warriors’ first in the league.

*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 NAPHL – plus or minus any trades – which became active on Nov. 1. Tendered players are not eligible for the NAHL draft, which will be held on June 2, 2020. *
