Jackalopes tender defenseman Charlie Banquier

ODESSA, TX – The Odessa Jackalopes are proud to announce they have tendered defenseman Charlie Banquier for the 2020-21 season.

A native of Oakville, Ontario, Banquier stands tall at 6’2’’, weighs 207 lbs and is a right-handed shot. Banquier is most recently coming off a successful midget season with the Mount St. Charles Academy U18 team. This past season Banquier garnered 18 points (five goals, 13 assists) in 53 games played.

“Charlie is a big, physical, shut down defenseman who plays hard each game,” said Jackalopes head coach Jason Fortier. “He makes great outlet plays and has the ability to change the momentum of a game with his physical play. Jackalopes fans will embrace Charlie’s grit and tenacity.”

Banquier is the first defenseman the Jackalopes have tendered this off-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, plus or minus any trades, which become active on Nov. 1. Tendered players are not eligible for the NAHL draft. (Information provided by NAHL.com)
