2020-03-09 analysis Johnston has only played once in the last nine games for the Islanders so it shouldn't come as a shock that he will sit Tuesday. Johnston was practicing with several other forwards who are expected to sit also in Tom Kuhnhackl, Michael Dal Colle, and Otto Koivula. The Islanders have lost six straight games and could use a spark, so perhaps coach Barry Trotz will give Johnston a chance to provide t
2020-03-09 update Johnston will once again watch the game from the press box Tuesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
2020-02-17 analysis Johnston generally only plays when coach Barry Trotz feels that he needs a more physical presence in the lineup. Johnston played Feb. 10 in Washington to keep Tom Wilson in check and Saturday in Vegas for the same reason with Ryan Reaves. It was a bit of a surprise that Johnston played over Tom Kuhnhackl on Monday as Arizona doesn't have a player that would match up with Johnston's fighting abilit
2020-02-17 update Although Johnston has been active the past two games for the Islanders, he's only averaging just over seven minutes of ice time.
2020-02-01 analysis With Cal Clutterbuck (wrist) still not having a definitive timetable to return to the lineup, coach Barry Trotz is forced to either play, Michael Dal Colle or Johnston. That decision likely comes down to what Trotz thinks is needed most for that particular game, the skill of Dal Colle or the physical presence of Johnston. With Cal Clutterbuck (wrist) still without a definitive timetable for his return to the lineup, coach Barry Trotz has been forced to either play Michael Dal Colle or Johnston.

2020-02-01 update Johnston has already set a career-high for games played in a season with 28.
2020-01-14 analysis Johnston was in the game due to the absence of Casey Cizikas. Johnston may also play Tuesday as Cizikas is out of the lineup once again. Johnston has three goals in 25 games this season, but his main role is as a physical threat. Johnston can drop the gloves with the best of them and his inclusion in the lineup will come down to what coach Barry Trotz feels is needed more, physical play or the ski
2020-01-14 update Johnston didn't register a point but did have 17 penalty minutes in the Islanders 6-2 loss to the Rangers on Monday.
2019-12-28 analysis Johnston opened the scoring at 5:50 of the first period. The 25-year-old was listed on the second line to start the game, although his 9:36 in ice time suggests he received his more typical fourth-line usage. Johnston has three goals, 68 hits, 49 PIM and just 11 shots on goal through 21 contests this year.
2019-12-28 update Johnston scored a goal, dished two hits, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Blackhawks.
2019-12-18 analysis Johnson was given a questionable charging penalty as the referees were trying to make sure the game didn't get out of hand and then his chirping at them led to his misconduct penalty. Johnston has been elevated to the top line with Mathew Barzal but that arrangement could be coming to an end in the near future as Johnston only has one point in his last six games and it's not like Barzal has been l
2019-12-18 update Johnston took 12 minutes in penalties at the end of the Islanders' 8-3 loss to the Predators on Tuesday.
2019-12-01 analysis Johnson has been a healthy scratch in four of the past five games for the Islanders and is only used during emergencies or when coach Barry Trotz feels they need his physical presence in the lineup. Johnston does have 35 PIM in those 12 games and isn't afraid to drop the gloves and duke it out with some of the best fighters in the NHL.
2019-12-01 update Johnston has one point, a goal, in 12 games so far this season.
2019-11-09 analysis Saturday marked the ninth game this season that Johnston has played in after participating in only 17 last season. The reason for this is the rash of injuries that the Islanders have suffered this season. Johnston is on the team because of his fists and not for his ability to light the lamp. Generally, he would only play versus teams that might want to engage in extracurricular activities. Some of
2019-11-09 update Johnston has one goal in eight games this season for the Islanders.
2019-10-28 analysis The fourth-line winger was playing just his fourth game of the season, but Johnston made a big impact by scoring his first goal of the season. He remains irrelevant in fantasy and does not belong on your team, even in deeper leagues. The fourth-line winger was playing just his fourth game of the season, but Johnston made a big impact by scoring his first goal. He remains pretty much irrelevant in the fantasy arena, however.

2019-10-28 update Johnston scored a goal, fired three shots on net, blocked another three shots and collected nine penalty minutes in a 5-3 win over the Flyers on Sunday.
2019-10-10 analysis This isn't a surprise as Johnston will only play when coach Barry Trotz feels that his physical presence is needed. Johnston is not someone who is going to help the Islanders score goals but rather someone who isn't afraid to drop the gloves and take on any opponent. The Islanders are having problems lighting the lamp in the early going this season and Trotz did mention Wednesday that lineup chang This isn't a surprise, as Johnston will only play when coach Barry Trotz feels that his physical presence is needed. The Islanders are having problems lighting the lamp in the early going this season, and Trotz did mention Wednesday that lineup changes may be coming, so perhaps Johnston will get his first chance to play Friday in Carolina.
