Tomahawks Host Knights for First-Time at Home
Tomahawks Hold Perfect 6-0-0 Record over WB/Scranton This Season
The Tomahawks triumphantly return to the friendly confines of 1ST SUMMIT ARENA after recording back-to-back shutouts of the Maryland Black Bears.
This weekend's opponent, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights, make their first trip to Johnstown on the season.
- The Tomahawks are a perfect 6-0-0 against the Knights this season. Johnstown owns a 34-8-4 record all-time against WB/Scranton.
- Hawks have outscored the Knights 23-10 this season.
- The Knights top scorer is Jacob Badal who has 13 goals and 10 assists in 35 games.
- Mont-St-Aignan, France native Sacha Guillemain is second in points with 22 including seven goals.
- The Knights are currently two points out of a playoff spot behind the Generals.
-Player to Watch: Tyrone Bronte-
Much like Tomahawks forward Sam Solensky, Bronte is committed to Bemidji State and is also a key cog in the Knights' machine. The Melbourne, Australia native has 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists) in 31 games for WB/Scranton including three game-winning goals. Look for Bronte to be a persistent threat in the Knights' attack this weekend.
