North Iowa goalie Johnson makes NCAA commitment
March 9, 2016
The North Iowa Bulls of the NA3HL are proud to announce that goaltender David Johnson has made his NCAA commitment and has committed to play for the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC).
Johnson, 20, is in his second year playing for the Bulls and hails from Bloomington, MN.
Johnson has had a tremendous season to date, posting a 19-0-1 record in 20 appearances with the Bulls this season. His 1.59 goals against average and his 94% save percentage both rank 2nd in the NA3HL.
Johnson (6’2/200) was named the NA3HL Goaltender of the Month in January with a 5-0 record, a 1.00 goals against average and a 96.5% save percentage. Out of 141 total shots in the five games, Johnson (6’2/200) made 136 saves, which included two more shutouts.
He has made 33 game starts in his two years with the Bulls. In those starts he is 30-2-1 with 9 shutouts and a 1.65 GAA and .937 save percentage.
"To say that David has excelled here is an understatement. I do not believe there has been a goaltender in our existence that has posted a winning percentage like that. David, through his efforts has helped the Bulls continue to be a top team in the NA3HL,” said Bulls head coach Todd Sanden.
Johnson also recently participated in the 2016 NA3HL Top Prospect Tournament for team Midwest.
"David has been a big part of the fabric of our team first philosophy and he has made sacrifices to get himself to this point in his career,” continued Sanden.
