looking forward to a big year from junior forward Charlie
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.
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.
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.
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.”
