Storm D-man commits to Ohio University

Integral part of the club’s playoff success, culminating with five points in six games

Campbell River Storm defenseman Trent Johnson has committed to Ohio University for the 2015-16 season.

The 5’10”, 154 pound blueliner, who grew up in Rochester, Michigan, joined the Storm last season.   He had an outstanding rookie campaign, registering 10 goals and 34 assists in just 38 games.  After a short stint with the New Hampshire Monarchs of the EHL, he rejoined the Storm this year, scoring five times and adding 12 assists in 22 regular season games.

He was also an integral part of the club’s playoff success, culminating with five points in six games at the Keystone Cup Championship tournament.

“I can’t thank the Campbell River Storm organization enough for what they have done for me in the past two years on and off the ice,” says Johnson, “I am very excited to start a new chapter in my hockey career at Ohio University next season.”

The Ohio University Bobcats hockey club was founded in 1958 and compete in the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA).

Bobcats head coach Sean Hogan is pleased to add a player with Johnson’s speed and skill to his lineup.

“We are excited to land a defenseman of Trent’s caliber with such an offensive upside. He comes from a winning program with the Campbell River Storm and he will fit right into our culture here at OHIO Hockey.”
