Dalhousie Tigers men’s hockey head coach Chris Donnelly is pleased to announce the commitment of Logan Johnston for the 2019-20 season.
Johnston, a forward from Fredericton, N.B., has played the last three years with the Edmundston Blizzard in the Maritime Junior Hockey League (MHL). Over his 92 games with the Blizzard, he amassed 136 points and 50 penalty minutes, making him the team’s top scorer for the last two seasons. He and his Blizzard teammates were the 2017-18 MHL champions, a season in which he also earned an MHL all-star team nod.
A two-time member of Team Canada at the U19 World Junior A Challenge, Johnston won a silver medal in 2016-17 and returned the following year as an assistant captain.
“I’m excited to join the Dalhousie Tigers family this coming fall,” says Johnston. “It’s been a goal of mine to play in the AUS and I am fortunate to have the opportunity to continue to play hockey at a high level and further my education at a great university.”
Johnston will be working towards an arts degree while attending Dalhousie.
“Logan has Major Junior experience and over his junior career he has developed his offensive game,” says Donnelly. “He was the leading scorer for the Edmundston Blizzard for the last two years and was the captain this past season. Logan finished fourth overall in scoring in the Maritime Junior A League and we are looking forward to adding his offensive abilities and character to our program.”
The Tigers open the 2019-20 season at home to StFX on September 25.
