Former Superior star shines for Johnstown Tomahawks

North Division Star of the Week: Mitch Kontny, forward, Johnstown Tomahawks (week ending October 7th)

Johnstown is now on a three-game winning streak thanks in part to team captain Mitch Kontny, 20. This past weekend, Kontny (6’0/180) was instrumental in Johnstown’s weekend sweep of the Janesville Jets.

The native of Superior, Wisconsin, recorded three goals and an assist over the two-game weekend and was also a +3. In Saturday’s 5-3 win, Kontny scored the game’s first goal and added an assist on the last goal. In Sunday’s 4-1 win, it was Kontny again scoring the first goal of the game, which like the night before, also came in the game’s first minute. He also added a goal midway through the 3rd period to secure the win.

He is tied for the team lead with four goals.

“Mitch is a great leader and he leads by example,” said Tomahawks head coach Jason Spence. “He is physical player and works really hard at getting to pucks first and then capitalizing on his chances.”

Dylan Zink (Monona Grove) earned 2nd Star of the Week status.

Wisconsin players earning honorable mention were Cody Dixon (Catholic Memorial/Pius), Brett Skibba (Middleton), and Garret Clemment (Wausau West).
