Teams and fans are still awaiting for the official NAHL 2013-2014 game schedule, but yesterday the league released the schedule for the 2013 Showcase Tournament.
The Showcase will run from September 18-22 at the Schwan Super Rink in Blaine, Minnesota. All 24 teams from the league will compete in the tournament and all teams will be involved in four regular season match ups.
The Tomahawks last year had a record of 1-2-1 during the Showcase. The only win the Tomahawks got last year in the tournament was the team's first victory in team history, a 6-5 shootout win vs. Kenai River.
Last Years Games/Results
Game 1: Brookings Vs. Johnstown 4-2 L
Game 2: Kenai River Vs. Johnstown 6-5 SOW
Game 3: Johnstown Vs. Austin 5-4 L
Game 4: Johnstown Vs. Corpus Christi 5-3 L
Just like last year, Johnstown won't face any team from their own division during the showcase this season.
Sept 18- 8:15 PM, Amarillo Bulls vs. Johnstown Tomahawks
Sept 19- 4:30 PM, Johnstown Tomahawks vs. Topeka RoadRunners
Sept 20- 10:30 AM, Aberdeen Wings vs. Johnstown Tomahawks
Sept 21- 9:30 AM, Johnstown Tomahawks vs. Bismarck Bobcats
All game times are Central Time zone.
Johnstown is expected to have a very talented team this season and they will face an early test vs. the Amarillo Bulls, 2012-2013 Robertson Cup Champions.
Last season the Tomahawks played two away games before heading to the showcase. We'll have to wait and see if that'll be the case again this season.
We'd like to share two quick links, both of which come from posts written by Tomablog writers.

We'd say both are great reads about the Tomahawks, but of course we'd say that, we wrote them.
