by Chris White

Congrats to International Hockey Management client, Isak Johansson, the 2000-born goaltender from Märsta, Sweden, made his NAHL debut on Saturday, January 26. Johansson was recently signed by the Minnesota Wilderness, after a stellar first half of the season with the Utica Jr. Comets of the NCDC. The netminder was honored with a selection to the NCDC All-Star Game, and then was offered an opportunity to join the Wilderness.

Janesville 4 @ MN Wilderness 3 (OT) - Nick Nardella finished off a two-on-none breakaway in overtime as the Janesville Jets took down the Minnesota Wilderness 4-3. The Wilderness had the lead on three separate occasions as Bram Scheerer netted the games’ first goal only to see Isaac Novak tie it up. Kimball Johnson’s sixth goal of the year put Minnesota back up by one but Justin Thompson tied the game again, just 4:30 into the third period. Garrett Worth’s 8th of the season gave the Wilderness the lead yet again before Carter Hottman’s game tying goal and Nardella’s game winner. Riley Sims allowed just three goals on 40 saves while Isak Johansson made 30 saves on 34 shots in his first NAHL start.
