Mark Johnson was born in Minneapolis, but he is Madison through and through. A star for his legendary father Bob at the University of Wisconsin, he then became a star on the 1980 US Olympic team. He spent 11 seasons in the NHL (including 10 for the North Stars at the end of the 1982 season) and earned an All Star berth while with the Hartford Whalers in 1984. He has spent the last decade as the head coach of Wisconsin's women's hockey team, and led the women's Olympic team to the silver medal in Vancouver in 2010.
