The leading scorer in UND hockey history, Greg Johnson, died Monday in Detroit, according to the University. Johnson 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.

"The UND hockey family is saddened to learn of Greg Johnson's passing," UND head hockey coach Brad Berry said. "Our heartfelt sympathies and thoughts are with Greg's family and loved ones at this difficult time. He was a Hall of Fame athlete and more importantly, a Hall of Fame man. He will be greatly missed."

Johnson played 12 years in the NHL with four teams (Detroit, Pittsburgh, Chicago and Nashville).
