Kalamazoo adds defenseman Johnson

The Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings have announced the addition of defenseman Sam Johnson in a trade from the Amarillo Bulls.

Johnson is a 20-year-old Dallas native. “Sam is a physical and reliable defender,” noted Kalamazoo head coach Marc Fakler. “He will add size and veteran leadership to our defense.”

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound blueliner will be suiting up for his third NAHL team when he skates with the Jr. K-Wings, which should be as early as this Saturday against the Michigan Warriors.

Johnson spent 34 games with the Wenatchee Wild last season, where he tallied 10 points and played to a +10 rating. He was then moved to Amarillo where he played nine games, picking up two assists.

Johnson started this season with the Bulls, playing in four games, and notching two assists. Over the course of his career, he has played to a +16 rating and also has five games of playoff experience to his name with Amarillo.
