Warriors captain Johnson heads home for CIS hockey at Saskatchewan
Wednesday, May 27, 2015 - Submitted by West Kelowna Warriors
Andrew Johnson joined the West Kelowna Warriors after the season started but immediately took on the captaincy role and now he's used the experience to vault himself to a CIS hockey opportunity at his hometown University of Saskatchewan.

Johnson played in 309 Junior games in his career, including three WHL stops with Moose Jaw, Swift Current and Seattle.

The 5-foot-10, 180-pound forward finished with 19 goals and 25 assists in 46 games this past season and added five points in the first-round series versus Penticton.

Heading home was an easy choice.

"I haven't played at home since I was 15 years old in Midget," said Johnson. "It's going to be special and I'm friends with some of the guys on the team, plus I have a good relationship with the coach.

"I wasn't sure what was going to happen in my 20-year-old year but getting the opportunity in West Kelowna was the best possible situation for me and I am beyond thankful for it. I already miss it

The opportunity came out of a connection from Warriors coach Rylan Ferster. After getting told that Johnson was available, Ferster talked with Johnson and they decided it was going to be a good fit. His sweaters had the "C" sewn on before he got to the Okanagan and he wore it in his first game October 24th in Nanaimo.

"Andrew is a special player," said Ferster. "He plays 200 feet, is a great penalty killer and took over 75 per cent of our face-offs down the stretch. I'm glad that he is going to get a chance to go to school and play hockey in his hometown. We wish him the best of luck and congratulate him on a great junior career."
