WICHITA FALLS, TX — The Warriors are pleased to announce that the team has signed 2000-born veteran forward Jackson Wozniak to a tender contract for the 2020-21 season.
Wozniak, a 5-foot-10, 185-pound California native, comes to the Warriors with several years of junior experience under his belt. Most recently, he was with the Grande Prairie Storm of the AJHL, where he served as team captain in 2019-20.
Wozniak capped off a productive regular season (9-20–29) with a strong playoff showing, putting up a third of his goal total for the season in just four postseason games.
“Jackson brings a lot of junior experience and leadership that will help our group out immensely,” Head Coach Garrett Roth said. “He can impact the game in so many different ways, which adds to the value he brings on a nightly basis. The passion and excitement he brings will be contagious within our locker room and that is an unmatched trait in a player.”
Wozniak is the sixth forward and the eleventh overall player tendered by the Warriors as they continue to work towards building their roster. He joins fellow tendered forwards Luke Panchisin, Nick Urtis, Chase Davis, Sam Myers, Alex Walker, defensemen Lane Ruffner, Max Techel, Jack Blanchett, and goalies Sean Guerin and Owen Bartoszkiewicz in a strong recruiting class for the upcoming 2020-21 season, the Warriors’ first in the league.

The Warriors have announced the revised date for Pre-Draft Camp prior to the NAHL Draft. Players can register for camps here.
*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 July 21, 2020. *
