I thought some of the other hockey fans and western/central PA folks on the board would be happy to see this article. Two years after losing the ECHL Chiefs, Johnstown is getting an NAHL team. Johnstown has a loyal hockey fanbase, but the city is too small to support a pro team. However, I think a junior hockey team will do very well in the city.
The gritty western Pennsylvania city whose rich minor league hockey history helped inspire the cult movie hit Slap Shot is getting another chance to support a hockey team.
"Old-time hockey...Toe Blake, Dit Clapper, Eddie Shore, those guys were the greats!"
Yeah, sure Old Time Hockey!
Like Eddie Shore
Eddie Shore yeah
Coach....our line starts?
Being from the Johnstown area its great to see hockey back in town. I used to love to go to Chief games as a kid and I love the movie Slap Shot!
