Dec 7, 2017

JOHNSTOWN – The Johnstown Tomahawks, proud members of the North American Hockey League, announced Thursday that former defenseman, Hunter Carrick, has committed to Penn State University.

Carrick, of Orland Park, Ill., started the season with the Tomahawks, scoring two goals and adding four assists in 16 games before being called up to the USHL’s Omaha Lancers.

“Hunter is extremely deserving of his commitment to Penn State and I could not be happier for him,” head coach Mike Letizia said. “As our 2017 first round draft pick, he certainly showed his outstanding hockey ability and potential while with our team before moving to the USHL. He is an extremely skilled d man, with an elite hockey IQ and I think the sky is the limit for him. Beyond his hockey talents, are his great character, and relentless drive to be the best player he can be. I am extremely proud of him and am happy to play a part in his development and advancement to a great hockey program like Penn State, and hopefully into the professional ranks.”

Carrick is the second Tomahawks player to commit to Penn State as former defenseman Adam Pilewicz announce he was going to Hockey Valley last season.
