Bulls alum Johnson makes NCAA commitment
The North Iowa Bulls of the NA3HL are proud to announce that former Bull Jake Johnson has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.
Johnson was the overtime catalyst that sent North Iowa into the National Championship game in 2013. He buried a James Hughes (UW-Superior) rebound in the second OT to send North Iowa to the title game.
Hughes, who is also at UW-Superior and could be a possible linemate for Johnson and the Yellowjackets.
Johnson, who is from Madison, Wisconsin, was tendered by the NAHL's Minot Minotauros after the 2012-13 season and then during the 2013-14 season played for Minot in 61 games including playoffs and recorded 16 points.
Johnson tallied 46 NA3HL points in 47 regular season and playoff games, he also contributed 4 points in 5 games at the 2013 USA Hockey Junior National Championship.
"Jake is an honest player who has one of the best work ethics I have seen. He plays the game hard and consistently gives his best effort," said North Iowa head coach Todd Sanden. "Jake will be a successful college hockey player based on these components of his game."
