Robert Morris commit Cameron Hebert topped the 2018 NAHL Draft class for the Johnstown Tomahawks.
The Tomahawks selected Hebert with the No. 5 pick in the first round on Tuesday. The 19-year-old scored 43 points (16 goals, 27 assists) in 55 gams with the Cornwall Colts of the CCHL. Hebert stands at 6-foot and checks in at 173 pounds and is a left-handed shot that can play center and wing.
“He’s a strong two-way forward,” Johnstown head coach Mike Letizia said. “He reminds us of Luke Lynch in many ways and is a great 200-foot player.”
“Cameron is a solid player who brings offense and the total package to the table,” added assistant coach Nick Perri. “He’s also responsible in all three zones, which is something any team in our league wants to have.”
Hebert’s older brother, Grant, will be joining the Colonials this fall. He and his sister, Ally, will play for Robert Morris beginning in the 2019 season. Hebert was the first of two first-round picks for the Tomahawks.
With the No. 17 overall pick, the Tomahawks selected forward Chad Merrell from the Kanata Lasers of the CCHL. Merrell, a 19-year-old forward from Boca Raton, Florida, had 13 goals and 15 assists in 36 games with the Lasers last season.
