Year in Review: #15 Logan Stork
Trades happen in hockey and the Johnstown Tomahawks were no stranger to making deals in 2016-17.
A late November trade with the Minnesota Wilderness brought Pittsburgh native Logan Stork back to Western Pennsylvania.
Prior to his first NAHL season, Stork captured a U18 National Championship with the Pittsburgh Penguins Elite team.
Head coach Mike Letizia had this to say about the acquisition.
“Logan Stork is a player we have some familiarity with being a Pittsburgh kid as we scouted him over the last few years and he attended our main camp two seasons ago,” Letizia said. “He began the season in Des Moines of the USHL and then with Minnesota where he had a good start to the season. We are excited to bring him closer to home and add his energy, work ethic and passion into our lineup where I think it will create a positive spark throughout our club.”
It didn’t take long for Stork to fit in with his new club as the forward notched two goals in his first two games as a Tomahawk against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
He was a crucial part of the Tomahawks offense, earning minutes with the power play units and top-six minutes.
His hard work and offensive instincts helped Stork earn a spot on the East Division team at the 2017 Top Prospect Tournament in Plymouth, Michigan.
