Johnstown Tomahawks Weekend Preview - Junior Hockey News

The series between the Johnstown Tomahawks and the Soo eagles has not been for the faint of heart. There has been plenty of bad blood between the two teams this season.

Johnstown and Soo will lock horns Friday and Saturday at Pullar Stadium in Sault Ste. Marie, MI.

The Opposition:

Soo had the luxury of having the week off from the hard-hitting North Division, so the Eagles will be a well-rested bunch.

The last time Bruno Bragagnolo's team took to the ice was at the Cambria County War Memorial Arena, were they took a 6-2 beating.

The Eagles are tied for first place in the North Division with the Jamestown Ironmen. Both teams have earned 55 points and have identical records.

Tyler Marble and Zach Nagelvoort are the backbone of the Soo Eagles. Both Marble and Nagelvoort have put together solid starts and have earned impressive records.

Cody Von Rueden and Michael Lant have been impressive on the back-end and Brandon Addams has been very impressive since joining the team from the College of the Holy Cross.

Adams has experience in the North American Hockey League. In 2011-12, Adams played for the Corpus Christi IceRays, where he scored one goal and two assists.

After the series against Johnstown, Soo hits a critical part in their schedule.

The Eagles will host Jamestown next week, and will travel to Johnstown to play a third game in three nights.


Road trips in hockey are a great bonding experience for a team.

For Johnstown, the road may bring them some relief in the standings.

The Tomahawks are just 2-2-1 in the past five contests at the War Memorial, so the road may bring some wins for Jason Spence.

The team scored a huge win against the Michigan Warriors in game two of their weekend series after a three-goal outburst in the third period.

Jaycob McCombs has the hot hands recently. McCombs, a Mt. Morris, MI native, has scored four goals in the past four games and has found some success on a line with Cody Boyd and JB Baker.

The grouping of Andrew McDonald, Zach Wallace and Connor Wright has also been productive and lethal for Johnstown.

The Tomahawks have not had much success at Pullar Stadium. In mid-October, the Tomahawks garnered only a single point of a two game weekend from the Soo.

Keep An Eye On:


Cody Gylling

He scored the tying goal against the Warriors in game two of the series. Gylling leads the Tomahawks in points.


Alexander Taulien

The Crystal Lake, IL native has been a solid scoring option for the Eagles.
