Chad Johnson had no issue accepting Team Canada's offer to play in the 2017 IIHF World Championships even though he is a pending unrestricted free agent.
"Some players don't do these types of things because they don't have a contract, because they don't want to risk injury," Johnson said. "I thought about that, but for me, these opportunities don't come very often. I love being a part of Canada, I love being Canadian, I love being part of Hockey Canada. So, for myself, to put on a Canadian jersey to play for Team Canada, it was a no-brainer for me ... I didn't think about it being something I have to do because of my contract situation. I think my body of work over the past two years speaks for itself." He would like to stay with Calgary, but he isn't sure what their plans for the crease are moving forward. Apr 29 - 10:37 AM

Chad Johnson, who becomes a UFA on July 1, wants to return to the Calgary Flames.

The Flames need goaltending as both Johnson and Brian Elliott are potential UFA's. Johnson was slated to be the Flames backup this season but carried them early on as Elliott really struggled. Johnson was 18-15-1 this season with a 2.59 GAA and a .910 save percentage so he certainly played a lot. "I want to be a 1A goalie," Johnson said. "I think I’ve proven I can be a 1B when I was given the opportunity I took that role and had that roll and did well. My goal is to be part of a winning team and to play and to contribute. I think I can do that here." Stay tuned.

Chad Johnson will return to his post as backup goalie in Game 2 against Anaheim on Saturday.

He had been out with a lower body injury, though Brian Elliott was able to hold down the fort in his absence. Johnson is unlikely to see much time this postseason without Elliott falling apart first.

Mar 15 - 12:41 PM

Feb 24 - 12:58 PM

Chad Johnson gave up four goals on 23 shots while Brian Elliott let one of nine past as the Flames lost 5-0 to the Coyotes Monday.

Johnson was not terrible in the first period with eight saves on nine shots, but he gave up three on 14 in the second. With a 4-0 deficit, the decision was made to put Elliott in for the final 20 minutes so that he could knock a little rust off during the hopeless effort. The two goalies combined for a save percentage of only .843.
