Tomahawks Make Trade with Wilderness

Ryan McNeely
Yesterday the Johnstown Tomahawks traded Jaycob McCombs and Ryan Bittner to the Minnesota Wilderness for Ryan McNeely and cash.

McNeely is a '93 birth year player and had appeared in 4 games with the Wilderness registering two assists this season.

Last season McNeely played for the Corpus Christi IceRays and was a teammate with current Tomahawks' defenseman Trevor Heuser. In 15 games with the IceRays, McNeely had four goals, two assist, good for six points and had two penalty minutes.

He also appeared with the Fairbanks Icedogs in 32 games last season, scoring 11 points (2 goals, 9 assists).

Before entering the NAHL, McNeely played for the Phoenix Jr. Coyetes U18 team, along side Cody Gylling.

The trade sent newcomer Ryan Bittner to the Wilderness. Bittner played in three games for the Tomahawks and he did not record a point.

Jaycob McCombs was in his second season with Johnstown. This year he played in all six games with the Tomahawks and had one assist. Last season he played 42 games in a Tomahawks jersey, scoring 8 goals, 7 assists, good for 16 points, and he had 61 penalty minutes.
