JOHNSTOWN — HOCKEY

Bednard named Star of Week

Johnstown Tomahawks forward Shane Bednard has been named NAHL North Division Star of the Week.

Bednard had three goals and two assists, helping the Tomahawks sweep the Springfield Jr. Blues this past weekend.

The Macomb, Mich., native has scored nine points (5-4-9) in his past five games, and is currently third on the team in points, goals and shots. He is tied with Brandon Reinholz for the team lead with two game-winning goals this season.

A four-point performance earned Reinholz an honorable mention for this week’s star of the week award. Reinholz had three points in the Tomahawks 6-5 win over the Jr. Blues on Saturday night.
