Johnstown Tomahawks forward Carson Grainer is headed to the ‘Burgh to continue his hockey career with the Chatham Cougars. Grainer is Pittsburgh bound this Spring where he will play for the Division III program.
Grainer is a native of Livonia, Michigan, and is in his second season with the Tomahawks. In his time in Johnstown, Grainer accounted for 19 points over the course of the last two seasons with the Tomahawks.
“The opportunity came for Carson to start his college hockey career early with Chatham and be a big part of the program that coach Gershon is trying to build there as he takes over as head coach,” said Head Coach Mike Letizia. “It was a situation where the timing and fit were right and we look forward to watching his career continue to develop in the Western PA area. We wish him nothing but the best as he embarks on the new journey of his life and hockey career.”
Before making a name for himself in the Flood City, Grainer played a season for the Belle Tire 18U AAA team. While Carson’s time with the Tomahawks has come to an end, his brother Peyton will be keeping the Grainer name around in Johnstown as a mid-season addition to the Tomahawks netminders.
