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."
