GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- The University of North Dakota Athletics Department and its men's hockey program is saddened by the passing of former UND hockey player Chad Johnson.

Johnson, a native of Grand Forks, lettered at UND from 1990-91 to 1992-93, appearing in 95 games for the Fighting Sioux.

"The UND hockey family has lost a great member," said UND head coach Dave Hakstol, who was a collegiate teammate of Johnson's. "Chad had such a positive impact on everyone who knew him, including myself, his UND teammates, and the hundreds of kids who loved playing for him.

"We are all better for knowing him and we will miss his quick wit and genuine friendship. We will have Chad and his family in our thoughts and prayers."

After his collegiate playing career, Johnson played professionally for three seasons before embarking upon a coaching career in the United States Hockey League.

Johnson's brother, Steve, also played at UND from 1984-88 and his nephews, Luke Johnson and Paul LaDue, are both freshmen on this year's hockey team.

UND Athletics would like to extend its deepest sympathies to Johnson's family and friends.
