Walpole, MA – A Freeport, ME native and Walpole Express Captain Sam Johnson has committed to Saint Michaels College in Burlington, VT for the fall of 2019. The 6’0, 185 lb defenseman is an incredible skater who will make an instant impact at the NCAA level. Johnson is a great addition for the the Purple Knights who currently have a handful of Express alumni on their roster.
“Sam has been a lead by example player for us the past two seasons. His work ethic and drive to get better has never wavered and he is willing to do whatever it takes to be successful,” said Coach Lounsbury. “I’m incredibly proud of Sam and his decision. I couldn’t think of a better fit and he is certainly going to be very difficult to replace.”
“I am very excited to be attending Saint Michael’s in the fall. I would like to thank my family, friends, and teammates for all the support throughout my journey to college hockey,” said Johnson. “I would also like to thank all my coaches, especially Coach Lounsbury and the Walpole Express for the endless support along the way.”
“Our Express family extends a big congratulations to Sam and his family,” added Lounsbury.
