Local Johnstown Celebrity To Drop Puck Prior to Saturday Night’s Game

Johnstown, Pa - The Johnstown Tomahawks are in the last stretch of the 2015-2016 NAHL season. The team has eight games left on the regular season schedule, with six of them taking place at the historic Cambria County War Memorial Arena.

The team is looking to break the regular season record for wins in a season (28) and can tie that record this weekend with two games against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. The Tomahawks are looking to move up in the East division standings to secure home ice advantage in the Robertson Cup Playoffs.

For the next remaining home games the team will have exciting game promotions for the loyal Johnstown fans.

One of those great promotions comes this weekend, Saturday (3/12/16) against the Knights. Local beloved celebrity, Jim Burton will be on hand for the ceremonial puck drop before the 7pm match-up.

A staple of the Johnstown community and surrounding area, Mr. Burton will be on hand to drop the ceremonial first puck and mingle with fans while promoting a great non-profit organization Beginnings Inc., who work to enable children to reach their full potential developmentally and help families grow strong through early intervention and educational opportunities.

He’s also been a proud support of the Johnstown Tomahawks.

Fans are encouraged to stop by the merchandise stand area behind section 21 to meet Mr Burton, win prizes and donate to Beginnings Inc.
