JOHNSTOWN, Pa. – The Johnstown Tomahawks announced today that forward Joe Drabin has been called up by the Youngstown Phantoms of the United States Hockey League.
In 18 games for the Tomahawks this season, Drabin has scored 11 points (4-7-11) , second on the team behind Brandon Reinholz. His six point performance at the NAHL Showcase in September earned him the NAHL North Division Star of the Week award for the week of September 23.
“That’s great news. Obviously, his play has given him a shot to play at the next level. He deserves it for sure,” said Tomahawks assistant coach Mike Letizia.
Drabin joins goaltender Colin DeAugustine as Tomahawks players who have been called up to Youngstown this season.
The Tomahawks welcome the Springfield Jr. Blues to the Cambria County War Memorial Arena this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 8 & 9. Friday’s 7:30 p.m. game features Faith & Family night, with over 60 congregations in attendance.
