Bismarck, ND--Bobcat Hockey is saddened by the passing last evening of a family member and friend, former Bobcat Coach Chad Johnson in Fargo at the age of 43.
Chad was the coach of the Bobcats starting in 2001 and led the Bobcats to back-to-back Bourne Cup Championships in his tenure with the Bobcats before moving to the FM Jets in 2004. Chad was also an assistant coach with the Fargo Force before becoming the Head Coach of the Lincoln Stars, a position from which he resigned just prior to this season.
Chad was loved by all who knew him and will be remembered as a winner at every level as a player and as a very talented coach. He will be missed by the hockey community and our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
