Wyatt Johnston is a Canadian professional ice hockey center, currently playing for the Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League (NHL). Notably, Johnston was selected in the first round of the 2021 NHL Entry Draft by the Stars.


Johnston began his career with the Toronto Marlboros in the Greater Ontario Hockey League (GOHL), where he played for two seasons. He later advanced to the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) where he was selected by the Windsor Spitfires during the 2019 OHL Priority Selection draft. Remarkably, during his second season with the Spitfires, he breathed fire as he accumulated 124 points in just 68 games to claim top honors such as the Red Tilson Trophy, Eddie Powers Memorial Trophy, and William Hanley Trophy alongside OHL First All-Star Team selection. This also led to huge anticipation regarding his NHL debut.


He eventually debuted on October 13, 2022 and became the first teenage player to play for the Stars since Miro Heiskanen in 2018, while also scoring his first NHL goal in the same game. More recently, on March 5, 2024, Johnston scored his first career hat-trick in a 7–6 win against the San Jose Sharks.
