Clark Cup winning general manager Andy Johnson is called up to the NHL
Andy Johnson is heading to the Los Angeles Kings to work for the team in a scouting role.
SIOUX CITY, Iowa — From helping the Sioux City Musketeers to a Clark Cup championship, being named the USHL General Manager of the Year, to now being hired as a scout for the LA Kings, it's safe to say this has been a year that Andy Johnson won't forget any time soon.
"It wasn't going to be just any team that I left Sioux City for," said former Musketeers general manager Andy Johnson in a video released on the Musketeers Twitter page. "it was going to be a team that does things the right way. The LA Kings have one goal and that is to win a Stanley Cup and I think that was made known to me right off the bat and that's what I want to do. I want to life that shiny trophy. It's always been a dream and that's the next pursuit."
Johnson spent the past five years working in Sioux City where he had a hand in developing players that came through the Musketeers organization as general manager and leading the scouting department. Johnson also helped bring the Clark Cup back to Sioux City for the first time in two decades.
The Musketeers have yet to name their next general manager.
