Tomahawks Invade West Coast (Weekend Preview)

This weekend (and next weekend) the Johnstown Tomahawks travel to the West Coast to take on the Wenatchee Wild.

Last season Johnstown visited Wenatchee and in two games they finished with a record of 1-1.

So far this season both teams battled each other at the Cambria County War Memorial Arena twice. Each team picked up one win.

The two games in Johnstown only a couple weeks ago were very physical and entertaining games. We except to see the same hockey the next two weeks.

Coming into this weekend Johnstown is on a two game winning streak and have won six of their last seven games. On the other side, the Wild have won three in a row, and six of their last eight games.

Wenatchee is 11-10-2 good for 5th place in the Midwest Division.

Johnstown is 14-9-1 good for 2nd place in the North Division.

Tomahawks' Add D-man for Road Trip:

At the beginning of this week we broke the story about the Tomahawks' adding a defenseman to the roster for this current road trip. That player is Logan Hudson. You can read all the details here.

Pittsburgh Penguins Elite Teams Playing at War Memorial This Weekend:

Just because the Tomahawks are on the road doesn't mean you have to go without seeing live hockey in Johnstown. The Pittsburgh Penguins Elite teams will be playing the Boston Advantage at the War Memorial Arena. All details can be found on our blog post here.

Notes:

Eric Tien recently played two games with the Michigan Warriors, scoring no points and was a minus 2. He was released by the Warriors this past Tuesday.
