Lone Star forward Johnson makes NCAA DI commitment
The Lone Star Brahmas of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that forward Luke Johnson has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at Lake Superior State University.
So far during the 2020-21 season, Johnson, 19, has recorded 21 points (12 goals, 9 assists) in 25 games played, which also includes a league-leading five game-winning goals. The 5’11/165 lbs. native of St. Cloud, MN, is 3rd in team scoring and ranks in the Top 20 in NAHL scoring.
“I’m honored to have received a scholarship to play Division 1 college hockey at Lake Superior State University,” said Johnson, regarding his commitment. “I would like to thank my family, parents, brother and adviser, as well as teammates and coaches. I’ve had a lot of good people that have constantly stood in my corner and showed love and support and I can’t thank them enough. I look forward to getting better, improving my game and continuing to win games to hopefully win a championship here.”
“On behalf of the Lone Star Brahmas, we would like to congratulate Luke on his commitment to Lake Superior State,” said assistant coach of the Brahmas, Andrew Whiteside. “Lake Superior State is getting a quality hockey player with an elite skill set. Luke has proven himself as one of the most prolific scorers in the South Division so far this season.”
Johnson made his NAHL debut during the 2019-20 season with the Minnesota Wilderness following a standout high school career with St. Cloud High in Minnesota.
Johnson is the second Brahma to commit to Lake Superior, with alum Seth Eisele (2018-19) also suiting up for the university. Currently, the team is 6-3-3 (W-L-OTL) in the 2020-21 season.
