Carter Dwyer was familiar with the Johnstown Tomahawks prior to the 2017-18 season. The West Chester, Pa., native was a member of the Aston Rebels in 2016-17 where he played 11 games and earned two points (one goal, one assist).
Dwyer was drafted by the Tomahawks in the eighth round of the 2017 NAHL Draft. The 6-2 defenseman brought added size and physicality to the Tomahawks as well as keen defensive ability.
Unfortunately, Dwyer's first season in Johnstown was cut short due to an upper-body injury in early January.
