Bio

Ivan Johnson Bio

Ivan "Ching" Johnson got a late start in the NHL, making his debut in 1926-27 at 28 years old, but he entered the League with a wallop. He became one of the toughest defensemen in NHL history, playing his entire 12-season career in New York, 11 with the New York Rangers and his final season with the New York Americans as a player-coach.

"With his balding head gleaming under the lights, the 6-foot, 210-pound Mr. Johnson would carry the puck down the rink like a runaway locomotive at full speed," read the New York Times obituary for Johnson. "There were few opponents who dared to impede his progress."
