The Hershey Bears announced today that the club has released defender Steve Johnson from his professional tryout agreement.
FROM BEARS PRESS RELEASE
Johnson, 24, skated in nine games with Hershey after joining the club from the ECHL’s Reading Royals on Dec. 12. He notched one assist, collecting his first AHL point with a helper on a Steve Whitney goal on Dec. 28 at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
Thought @Steviej5 did a great job during his 9 games in Hershey. Really good kid & hope to have him back in organization someday. His departure means Bears continue to get healthier on backend with Johansen back at practice this week. #HBH https://t.co/GV79H07GXr
