Johnstown Names its team and coach May 23, 2012 7:24 AM

Johnstown Sports Partners LLC, a private investment group led by Esmark, Inc. Chairman and CEO James P. Bouchard, today announced in conjunction with the North American Hockey League (NAHL) that it has named its new team the “Johnstown Tomahawks” with a logo featuring an American Indian head over crossed tomahawks, using a red, white, and blue color scheme.

Formerly the Alaska Avalanche, the NAHL team will begin play this fall in the city’s Cambria County War Memorial Arena.

The city has a long hockey history and was once home to the defunct Johnstown Jets, the minor league team that inspired the fictional Charlestown Chiefs in the 1977 cult movie hit "Slap Shot." The city’s last team, the ECHL’s Johnstown Chiefs, moved to South Carolina two years ago.

Johnstown Sports Partners also announced that Jason Spence, a former Johnstown Chiefs player, team captain, assistant coach and current assistant coach of the East Coast Hockey League’s Greenville Road Warriors, has been named head coach. Spence, who served as the Chiefs’ assistant coach from 2009 to 2010, is widely recognized for his player development skills and extensive scouting and recruiting experience.
