Crusaders on Ice: Arthur L. Johnson Ice Hockey Has Winning Season


CLARK, NJ – The Arthur L. Johnson’s Boys’ Ice Hockey Team continued their victorious season extending their record to 12-3-1. The 10-9 win over Edison sends the team to the top of their division. With a guaranteed run at the state championship following the end of the season, the team is still working hard to win their next three games.

The bond between the players on the ice is like no other. Johnson’s head coach and two assistant coaches are a very important reason why the team is so successful. They challenge the players every day, making sure they skate, shoot, and think to the best of their abilities in games and practice.

This successful season came at no easy price for the players and coaches. After a long and beneficial pre-season of running, skating, and lifting weights, the team went undefeated for the first seven games. On an emotional night, with an outstanding number of fans to support their star player Rocky Azari, who was playing in his last game before he moved to Chicago the following weekend, the team suffered its first tie. At the time, the loss of the team's leading goal scorer left a hole in the roster. This spot was filled though, as many different players stepped up to roles they would not have imagined being in at the start of the season.

Johnson bounced backed from the tie beating Nutley in both meetings of the home-and-home. Following these wins, Johnson suffered their first three losses in the span of two weeks. However, the determination and perseverance of this Crusaders ice hockey team has allowed them to reach a much-deserved record not seen in many years.
