2017-18 YEAR IN REVIEW: REAGAN WORTZ WORTZ SETTLES INTO FULL-TIME ROLE WITH TOMAHAWKS

REAGANONMICS

It was a long and winding road to Johnstown for Reagan Wortz. The Michigan native was a third-round pick of the Tomahawks back in 2016 and was a 17th round selection by the United States Hockey League’s Youngstown Phantoms. However, it wouldn't be until 2017-18 that Wortz word the red, white and blue of the Tomahawks.

“It was a pretty rocky road to get here,” Wortz said. “I spent that summer deciding whether I wanted to come here or not. I decided to stay and play Midgets and finish high school.”

Fast forward to 2017-18. Wortz began the season with the New Jersey Hitmen of the USPHL Premier. But, as often happens in hockey, situations change and a new team came calling. The Tomahawks, in a slump, called on Wortz to join the team in the early stages of teh season and he stuck ever since.

“Luckily, I had an opportunity to come here,” Wortz said. “When you join a team that is in a slump, you want to do everything you can to fit in with the system, your teammates and whatever the coach is running. You try and go every game and pick things up.”

REAGAN BY THE NUMBERS

Reagan battled through injuries during the season and suited up in 19 games for the Tomahawks. He notched one goal and one assists. His lone marker came as the Teddy Bear Toss goal on December 2 against the New Jersey Titans.
