Johnstown Tomahawks Game Previews - Junior Hockey News

The Johnstown Tomahawks are at home once again and host the Port Huron Fighting Falcons, Thursday and Friday. Johnstown hosts Soo in their final matchup, Saturday.

I started my second semester of my sophomore year on Monday, so I will have to scale back my articles on juniorhockey.com. I will still cover the Tomahawks at their home games.

The Opposition:

Port Huron pulled the trigger on trades that saw the likes of Kody Polin depart for division rival Kalamazoo, but also saw the additions of Dan Dupell and Mick Bruce from Topeka and David Parrottino from Kalamazoo.

Michael Gershon's Fighting Falcons have been very inconsistent this season and are losers of three straight games.

The team is in a dogfight with the Janesville Jets and the Springfield Falcons for the final two playoff spots and if Port Huron is not consistent and does not put together wins this week, they will fall behind.

Ian Miller and Rick DeRosa are the team leaders in points with 26 points.

The additions of Dupell and Bruce are solid and could keep the Fighting Falcons in the playoffs.


The Tomahawks managed to earn two points from the Soo Eagles last weekend.

Cody Gylling has found his scoring touch as of late. He scored two goals in the Tomahawks 5-4 shootout win Saturday and one goal in Fridays 5-2 loss to the Eagles.

Johnstown must improve on their power play in order to come away with the maximum amount of points.

Chris Truehl may get a start this weekend. He has been solid and has put up solid numbers.

Overall, the Tomahawks had a disappointing January and the road does not get easier for Jason Spence's squad.

Visits from the Fresno Monsters and the Wenatchee Wild are on the docket, while a visit to Janesville, WI is also on the schedule.

Keep An Eye On:

Port Huron

Ian Miller: The leader in goals (11) is a lethal threat for Port Huron. He should draw the attention of the Tomahawks defenseman.


Casey Nelson: He is a shot producing maniac from the point and generates chances for his teammates.
