Johnstown defenseman Blair makes NCAA commitment

May 14, 2020
The Johnstown Tomahawks, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that defenseman Brendan Blair has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey for the Aurora University Spartans of the NCHA conference.
The 6’1/185 lbs. native of Fenton, Missouri, began the 2019-20 season with the Amarillo Bulls and was traded to Johnstown in mid-November. While with the Tomahawks, Blair thrived, recording 12 points (4 goals, 8 assists) in 29 games with Johnstown.
Blair, 21, instantly became a workhorse on the Tomahawks blue line and in the community. He played a prominent role solidifying the defensive group both defensively as well as chipping in offensively. Additionally, he was an astonishing +22. Away from the rink, Blair was named the Tomahawks 2019-20 Humanitarian of the Year for his tremendous contributions in giving back to the entire Johnstown community.
“Brendan was a great acquisition for us in November,” said head coach Mike Letizia. “We had familiarity with him so bringing him to Johnstown we felt would not only help us on the ice, but off the ice as well. Brendan delivered in both ways. He played fantastic for us in all situations and was an outstanding citizen in our community earning our team’s Humanitarian of the Year Award. He is one of those guys that as a coach you wish you could have every year because of what he means to the team both on and off the ice.”
Tomahawks alum Drew Doyon recently graduated from Aurora serving as the team Captain for three seasons. He began his professional career with the Peoria Rivermen in the SPHL.
Aurora University, located in Aurora, Illinois, is led by head coach and NAHL alum Jason Bloomingburg.
