Here are Brendan Johnston’s answers to CKSN’s “Five Questions.”

1. What is your career sports highlight/top memory?

My career sports highlight so far would be when I was selected in the 5th round, 97th overall, in the 2013 OHL Priority Selection by the Windsor Spitfires. Playing as a part of this organization is an incredible feeling, something I will never forget.

2. Who is your favourite professional sports team and athlete?

My favourite team would have to be the Boston Bruins, it’s in the family blood. My dad and sister also love the Bruins, whereas my mom is a Leafs fan. Last years playoffs were fun to watch during the Bruins and Leafs battle in the first round. My favourite athlete is Henrik Lundqvist because I am a huge fan of his style as a goalie.

3. If you could achieve one thing/goal in sports, what would it be?

One thing that I would dream to achieve in sports would be to play in the NHL as a starting goalie.

4. Who has been your biggest sports influence and why?

My biggest sports influence is definitely my Dad because he used to be a goalie and has been my goalie coach since the beginning. He has been my biggest fan and supporter for my whole life and continues to be. He would do anything to help me conquer my dreams.

5. What do you love most about playing sports?

The one thing I love most about playing sports would be the challenge and competitiveness of the game. There’s no better feeling than coming out with a win after a tough game and feeling the reward of the hard work you’ve put into your sport. Another thing that is under looked would be how much a sport can bring people together. My team is like my family.
