Jack Johnson Staying at Michigan

from the An Arbor News via Mlive,
Jack Johnson called last week's NHL Entry Draft a great experience, but he's ready to move on to his University of Michigan experience. Johnson became the highest Wolverine drafted when he went third overall to the Carolina Hurricanes. Going that early in last Saturday's draft in Ottawa led to immediate discussion, including by two of the three commentators on Canada's national television coverage, that Johnson would never play hockey for Michigan. He would turn pro immediately instead. While announcing the signing Thursday of goalie Billy Sauer to replace the departed Al Montoya, Michigan coach Red Berenson said he never worried that Johnson would waver about playing for the Wolverines.
