Johnson, a Santa Barbara native and California Titans graduate, netted Wisconsin’s first goal of the season 5:51 into the first period of Sunday’s 3-2 victory over Michigan Tech University.

He then assisted on the Badgers’ second goal, a power-play tally, for his seventh career multi-point game.

During the 2012-13 season, Johnson compiled 19 goals and 35 points in 21 games for the Titans’ 16U AAA team.

Johnson then skated for the NAHL’s Minnesota Magicians in 2013-14 and the USHL’s Madison Capitols the following year.
