Nailers agree to terms with Tendeck

WHEELING, W.Va. - The Wheeling Nailers, ECHL affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins, announced the team has signed goaltender David Tendeck to a contract for the 2023-24 season.

Tendeck, 23, is entering his fourth professional season, after spending the first three years of his career in the Arizona Coyotes organization. He played the majority of two seasons with the Rapid City Rush, and finished with a save percentage over .900 in both campaigns. He then followed Arizona's affiliation change to the Atlanta Gladiators and finished second on the team with 12 wins in 2022-23. Tendeck saw American Hockey League action in back-to-back seasons with the Tucson Roadrunners, as he posted a 2.64 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage in nine appearances.

Prior to turning pro, the North Vancouver, British Columbia native played four seasons with the Western Hockey League's Vancouver Giants. Tendeck's junior career began to take off in 2017-18, when he finished ninth in the WHL with 25 wins, which led him to being selected by the Coyotes in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. He followed that up by leading the Giants to the Ed Chynoweth Cup Final, thanks to playoff series wins over Seattle, Victoria and Spokane. Tendeck saved his best statistical season for last in Vancouver, as he wrapped up his junior career with a 2.29 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage.
