Cam Johnson graduated from the University of North Dakota in 2018.

He appeared in 102 games with the Fighting Hawks, posting an overall record of 56-26-12, with 12 shutouts, a 2.10 goals-against average and a save percentage of .914.

In his sophomore year, Johnson stood on top of his head and led his team to win the 2015-16 NCAA National Championship. That year, he played in 34 games and earned a .935 save percentage.

Stick a Grand Forks in it, we're hungry for another #hang9

His spectacular play during his years at UND earned him a contract with the New Jersey Devils.

Right away, the Troy, MI native made an impact with the Devils AHL affiliate. Johnson earned his first professional win and point on opening night against the Toronto Marlies.

And perhaps created a rivalry with the team later in the year.

He didn't want it... I don't blame him

Johnson would go on to lead all Binghamton Devils goaltenders in wins this season and earned his first shutout on December 27 against the Utica Comets.

To continue his season of firsts, Johnson received his first call up to the show in January. While he never played, it's still pretty cool.

And now the fun begins. During the offseason, you can usually find the goaltender on the green, listening to his favorite musical artist, Future, and playing Halo with his friends. If he wasn't playing hockey, Johnson would be a talk show host. If he could trade places with one person for a day, it would be Cristiano Ronaldo. During his formative years, Johnson played baseball and his favorite subject in school was science.  

And last, but definitely not least, Johnson loves cats and we're pretty sure he's got the cutest one in the league… Just saying.

Just hangin with my man Pussss
