BRIÈRE'S BIG SEASON
Next up on our Year in Review is #14 forward Carson Brière, a player that consistently improved throughout the 2017-18 season.
Added to the roster in late October from the Philadelphia Rebels, Brière brought a skill level and work ethic that the Tomahawks benefited from immediately. Carson netted his first goal in his fourth game with Johnstown.
CARSON BY THE NUMBERS
As the season progressed, so did Brière’s points output. Often found himself on the power play and in crucial situations in the game. He found chemistry with fellow rookie Joey Baez and Christian Gorscak, forming the “Young Guns Line.” At one point, the Young Guns Line was a key point producing line for the Tomahawks as they gained ground in the East Division. Carson also netted two game-winning goals and five power play markers.
From start to finish, there was no doubt that Brière improved his game. That's why at the end of the season, he was awarded the Most Improved Player Award
