UNDATED--The University of North Dakota says the leading scorer in the history of the men’s hockey program, Greg Johnson, died Monday in Detroit. He was 48. Johnson played at UND from 1989 to 1993, ending his career as UND’s all-time scoring leader with 272 points in 155 games. His 198 assists also rank first all-time at UND. The native of Thunder Bay, Ontario, was a first-team All-America selection in 1991 and 1993, and a second-team selection in 1992. Johnson entered UND’s Hall of Fame in 2013. UND Coach Brad Berry said Johnson was “a Hall of Fame athlete and a Hall of Fame man” who will be greatly missed. Johnson played 12 seasons in the NHL with four teams (Detroit, Pittsburgh, Chicago and Nashville).
