Brendan Johnston will call a new OHL team home moving forward after the 1997 born netminder was traded from the Windsor Spitfires to the Flint Firebirds Wednesday.

“This is a good trade for both sides,” said Windsor Spitfires general manager Warren Rychel. “We wish Brendan all the best in Flint, where he’ll get a chance to play moving forward.”

In exchange for the netminder, who is currently playing for the GOJHL’s Chatham Maroons, the Windsor Spitfires received a 6th round draft pick from Flint.

Johnston was sidelined prior to the 2015-2016 season with a concussion, being pushed out without playing a game this season.

Last year in Windsor, Johnston played 37 games recording a 4.71 GAA and 0.871 save percentage.

In Chatham this season, Johnston has a 6-3 record with a 3.10 GAA and 0.911 save percentage. He was named the GOJHL Western Conference goaltender of the month for October.

Johnston, a Port Lambton product, is a Chatham-Kent Cyclones alumni, and also played for the Chatham Maroons in 2013-2014.

Johnston will report to the Flint Firebirds tomorrow to join his new team as they face Windsor.
