Playing career

The undrafted Johnston played junior hockey in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). On March 31, 2015, Johnston was signed to a three-year entry-level contract with the New York Islanders.[1]

At the end of the 2015-16 season, his first professional year, Johnston was recalled by the Islanders and made his NHL debut, going scoreless, on April 10, 2016.[2]

Johnston started the 2017-18 season with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, but was recalled on January 19, 2018, to replace the injured Casey Cizikas. He recorded his first NHL point in a 7-3 win against the Chicago Blackhawks.[3] He recorded his first NHL goal on January 25, 2018, against the Vegas Golden Knights to help the Islanders win 2-1.[4] He finished the season appearing in 24 games with the Islanders for 3 goals and 6 points.

As a restricted free agent, Johnston agreed to a four-year, $4 million contract extension with the Islanders on July 9, 2018.[5]
