Harvard's looking forward to a big year from junior forward Charlie Johnson.


Key Statistics: Johnson had just 14 points in 31 games last year as a sophomore, making him just one of several Crimson players to have an off year. He had 20 points in his freshman campaign and shared the team’s Rookie of the Year honors with defenseman Peter Hafner.

What He Does: Johnson is among the most skilled forwards on the Harvard roster. He’s shown a knack for scoring points in bunches. He had five multiple-point games as a freshman and three more last season.

The Bigger Picture: He missed five games for Harvard late last season but his return to the lineup really solidifed the team's line combinations as the playoffs approached. He joined Tom Cavanagh and Tim Pettit on the first line as they won the ECAC Championship after finishing sixth in the regular season. He’ll be counted on to produce all year long for a young Harvard team that lost top forwards Tim Pettit, Tyler Kolarik, and Dennis Packard.

Harvard captain Noah Welch on Johnson: “Charlie is a guy that other teams know about because of the skill level he has. He’s going to create a lot of offense for our team and he adds a key element to our lineup. He’s real creative with great hands and good vision.”
