Johnstown Tomahawks forward John Gelatt, 19, played a big role in helping the Tomahawks split their weekend road series in Maine against the Nordiques. The 5’11/190 lbs. native of Middletown, NJ, scored four goals on the weekend and was +2 in the two games. On Thursday, Gelatt had one of two Johnstown goals in a 6-2 loss. On Friday, he had a hat-trick in a 4-1 win. For the season, Gelatt leads the Tomahawks in scoring with 17 points in 13 games played.
“John has been outstanding for us all season long. In his first year, he has shown that he has the ability to be a top end player in our league. He definitely knows where the net is, but he is committed to playing the game the right way all 200 feet. When we needed a big win on Friday, he stepped up with a hat trick for us to lead the way. I eagerly look forward to seeing how his game continues to evolve this year,” said Tomahawks head coach Mike Letizia.
