Named captain in mid-October, Cade Groton was charged with leading a group of young Tomahawks through the 2017-18 season. Widely respected, Groton's immeasurable leadership during a tumultuous start to the campaign helped the Tomahawks improve and grow as a team.
“It was an awesome honor and I’m extremely excited,” Groton said. “It’s a privilege to be a captain in Johnstown. The city has plenty of hockey history so it means a lot to me. I’ve been trying to help some of the younger guys on the team because I was in their shoes just a few months ago.”
