LEAVE IT TO LEAVY
“They’re definitely one of the best teams in our league every year,” said Leavy, who was 13-1-1 with the division champions last season and 2-0-0 with the Rebels early this season. “We need to bring our best game every time we play them to have a good shot at winning. They play hard. They play a well-structured game.” - Jack Leavy after being acquired by Johnstown in late October.
Leavy was a well-known goaltender prior to arriving in Johnstown. As part of the opposition Philadelphia Rebels, he was booed frequently during those games against the Tomahawks.
I loved everything about Johnstown," Leavy said. "It felt like you were a pro because we got to stay at the hotel and walk to the rink. We had a nice away locker room which no other team in East has. And, we played in front of a real crowd and a real hockey building. It's awesome."
The towering 6-5 netminder also commented that his adjustment to Johnstown was non-existent. During the season, Leavy provided insurance in net and helped a young Tomahawks team improve every day in practice and during games.
