IHM Client Isak Johansson Signs With Las Vegas
International Hockey Management is proud to announce that client, Isak Johansson, has signed with the Las Vegas T-Birds of the USPHL Premier. The Göteborg, Sweden area resident spent the COVID-shortened season with Partille HK in Sweden's J20 Division 1. The 5'9, 176 pound winger is a left shot. Johansson was born November 5, 2001 in Colombia. Johansson will now be making his return to US junior hockey, his second season playing overseas.
Johansson's Partille HK J20 team was, unfortunately, only able to play 3 games, last year. However, Johansson finished second on the team with 4 Points (2G-2A). Last year, Johansson was a member of the returning Thorne Cup Champion El Paso Rhinos, who looked to be poised for a run at a repeat. In 18 Games Played, Johansson recorded 3 Goals and 3 Assists. The hard-working forward was among the younger players, and in his first year of North American hockey. Rhinos Head Coach, Corey Herman, raved about Johansson's work ethic, team-first mentality, and cohesion with the group. Prior, Johansson was a top producer for Partille HK's J18 team, after spending his developmental years within the Bäcken HC organization.
International Hockey Management President, Chris White, commented,
It hasn't been easy, but Isak is finally in Las Vegas and will join a strong T-Birds club. He will be one of the older players on the team, and should be a natural leader due to his work ethic and positive attitude. The organization has done a great job with it's staff hires, and plays in a great facility (City National Arena, the official training facility of the NHL's Vegas Golden Knights. Isak has already reported that he is thrilled with his billet family. We think this is going to be a special season for Isak.
