Searfoss earns respect for his play on both ends of the ice
Johnnie Searfoss played for coach Dean Blais in the USHL before coming to UNO. “I thought he’d be a perfect player for us, just because of his character. There wasn’t a game, out of our 60 or so in Fargo, where I had to say to him, ‘Johnnie, you’ve got to play harder,’” Blais said.

Johnnie Searfoss got a late start in hockey, but he got some sage advice shortly thereafter.
“One of my youth coaches told me, ‘You can be a goal-scorer, but you’re not going to score every shift,’” Searfoss said. “But you can make a difference by hitting guys and doing the little things.”
