Alpena tenders Livonia native Yarber

The Alpena IceDiggers have added forward Andy Yarber to their tender list for the 2007-2008 season.

"Andy brings grit to our hockey club and the fans in Alpena will be excited to see this kid's work ethic," Alpena head coach Kenny Miller said. "He is not very big, but he works hard every shift and I except him to do that at the junior level."

The Livonia native spent the 2006-2007 season with the Compuware Ambassadors midgets where he scored four goals and added 10 assists in 26 league games.

Yarber joins Compuware teammate Jon Puskar, Tyler Pilmore and JC Gulch (Toledo Cherokee) and Dan Pason (Little Caesars) as players who have signed tenders for the '07-08 season.

Yarber's signing means he will reunite with former Ambassador and current IceDigger forward Jimmy McCusker next season.
