Ott Returns to Johnstown; Team Adds Veteran Goalie

Today the Johnstown Tomahawks made two transactions. The first saw the return of high-scoring forward, Donovan Ott from the USHL. In a separate move, the Tomahawks acquired goalie, Jack Leavy from the Wilderness of the USHL.

Jack Leavy spent last season with the Aston Rebels where he posted a record of 13-1-2 and a save percentage of .921.

Leavy returned to the Rebels at the beginning of this current season but only played in two games for Philadelphia before being traded to the Wilderness.  In those two games, he went 2-0-0 with a save percentage of .933.

With the Wilderness, Leavy only played one game, which he lost and recorded a save percentage of .778.

Leavy is a big goalie standing at 6'5 205lb. He's also a 1997 birth year player.

Leavy joins a Tomahawks' team that currently has Purpura and League as goalies as well.

The other big news today is the return of forward Donovan Ott. Ott was third on the team in scoring last year, recording 57 points in 57 games.

This year, Ott was playing for the USHL's Muskegon Lumberjacks where he appeared in 5 games, but didn't have any points.

Having Ott returning to the Tomahawks give them a big boost and just might be the thing they need to end this franchise high losing streak.

The Tomahawks are on the road again this weekend as Johnstown visits Philadelphia for a pair of games.
