Hailing from Andover, MN, USA, Isaac Johnson is in his sophomore year with the Tri-City Americans. Currently this far into the season, Isaac has tallied 6 points in 3 games, averaging at 2.0 points per game. If he keeps this up, he’ll be rocking a 100+ point season!
Last year, Isaac managed to score 17 goals along with 31 assists on a good Amerks team. Unfortunately, there have been losses in players moving from junior onto their respective NHL teams. Players like top scorer, Morgan Geekie and Detroit Red Wings prospect, Michael Rasmussen are no longer with the team.
This is what makes junior hockey exciting, is that each season you’ll have a different set of players in any given organization. Of course, the flip side to that is that you’ll only get to see a max of five years of any player and most superstars don’t last that long. Sidney Crosby played only two seasons, while Wayne Gretzky only played one.
It’s likely that Isaac will continue to play for three or four years before deciding where he’ll end up post junior hockey.
Gettin’ the auto
Another one in the books for my Upper Deck CHL hockey card set, courtesy of Isaac Johnson. I got this one via the Tri-City Americans in less than a month. If there are any players you’re looking for on the Amerks, I’d highly suggest sending items to get signed via the team. This isn’t the first time I’ve gotten an autograph through a member of the organization. Most recently, it was Olaf Kolzig returning my mail.
