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.

“His dad was a very skilled forward who played a lot of years in the National Hockey League and had a lot of success,” Coach Letizia said. “He wasn’t the biggest guy but he had a huge heart. Carson is the same way. He’s not a monster but he’s got great puck skills and loves the game of hockey."

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.

MOST IMPROVED

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
