The Sea Dogs hve acquired Will Johnston from the Montreal Junior in exchange for a twelfth round draft choice next season.
Johnston, 18, is known for fists than for his play. He was a teamate of former Sea Dogs tough guy Brett Gallant last season. Both helped Summerside capture the MJAHL crown last season. Many Youtube videos have been posted of his impresive fights.
The move is most likely involved with head coach Gerard Gallant, known for his toughness in his NHL days. Johnston will take a lot of pressure off of Mike Thomas, who is expected to have a more offensive upside to his game this season.
