Jim Johannson Hockey Weekend in Portland, OR
Posted Jan 26, 2018

As many of you know, we lost a USA hockey hero this week.  Jim Johannson (JJ) passed away unexpectedly last weekend at his home in Colorado Spring, CO.  A two-time Olympian, JJ was a giant in our game and accomplished so much in just a short period of time.  Over the past two decades, he has advocated for our players, coaches and officials and grown our sport to where it is today, one of the fastest growing sports in the U.S.  JJ was also instrumental in the success of the U.S National Development Program where Auston Matthews, former Winterhawks Seth and Caleb Jones and current Winterhawk Kieffer Bellows began their careers representing the USA.  

Our recent success on the international stage is attributed to a lot of his hard work, accomplishments JJ never took credit for.  JJ also had a hand in selecting our current men’s Olympic Team and he said one of the highlights of his hockey career was delivering the news to the players who made this year’s team.

Earlier this week Kieffer Bellows tweeted “JJ was an incredible man who impacted not only the game of hockey, but the people around him. Thank you for being such a positive impact on all our lives”.

PJW President, Paul Gaustad also had the pleasure of knowing JJ.  Paul said, I had the extreme honor of getting to know JJ while playing for Team USA at the World Championships in 2011.  He was a great ambassador for hockey and our country.  He will be dearly missed”.

We as a PJW organization would like to dedicate this weekend of hockey to a true pioneer, giant and passionate believer in USA Hockey, Jim Johannson.  We dedicate the weekend of January 27-28, 2018 as Jim Johannson Hockey Weekend in Portland.

We will see you again on that great outdoor rink in heaven someday JJ.  Godspeed and heartfelt thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.
