The three-year deal, which will run through the 2021-22 season, carries a cap hit of $925,000.

Johnson, 20, will stay with the Red Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey League, where he is a captain this season. In 62 games, he’s notched 45 points (22 goals, 23 assists), which is good for second on to the team.
