Fargo Force defenseman Bradley Johnson has committed to play for Bemidji State University for the 2017-18 season.
Johnson, a native of Chesterfield, MO, is in his second year with the Force. Last season, Johnson scored 16 points in 57 games. This year, he continues to be one of the team’s top defenseman and is a mainstay on Fargo's penalty killing unit, which has given up only 2 goals in 64 attempts to lead the USHL with a 96.9% success rate. Johnson is the 20th member of the Force roster to commit to play college hockey at the Division 1 level.
“I am very excited to become a member of the Bemidji State family,” Johnson said. “The program is excelling and I look forward to being a part of it.”
Prior to his time with the Force, Johnson played for the Indiana Ice (USHL), Omaha Lancers (USHL), Sioux City Musketeers (USHL), Minnesota Wilderness (NAHL) and St. Louis AAA Blues (T1EHL)
Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the USHL celebrates its 15th season as the nation's only Tier I junior hockey league in 2016-17. 30 or more players from the USHL have been selected in four consecutive NHL Drafts, and more than 400 players on team rosters last season committed to NCAA Division I schools, further establishing the USHL as the world’s foremost producer of junior hockey talent.
