Marcus Johansson

Two Helpers For Caps' Johansson

News: Marcus Johansson snapped a four-game slump with a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Tampa.
Analysis: He'd gone scoreless with just three shots over those four games, and in fact didn't put a single shot on goal in Tuesday's contest either. Marcus Johansson has frequently failed to put pucks on net lately, having put up donuts in that category in six of the last 11 games. But with 18 points in 27 contests, he's still on a quite respectable 55-point pace, which is worth plenty of fantasy value.

Capitals' Johansson Has Two-Point Outing

News: Marcus Johansson's point streak sits at three games after he scored his ninth goal of the season and added an assist in Friday's win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Aside from a recent four-game pointless drought, Marcus Johansson has been very consistent this season, delivering nine goals and 16 points in 22 games. The second-liner, who plays on the top power-play unit, could hit the 30-goal and 60-point mark for the first time in his career.

Caps' Johansson Breaks Point Slump

News: Marcus Johansson assisted on a goal and attempted five shots in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Sabres.
Analysis: The assist ended a season-long four-game streak without a point, but Marcus Johansson's fantasy owners aren't about to complain. Thanks to a dramatic rise in shot attempts (1.33 per game in 2013-14, 2.35 this season), the 24-year-old has emerged as one of the primary offensive threats for the Capitals. His 13 points rank third on the team behind Nicklas Backstrom (19) and Alex Ovechkin (18).

Marcus Johansson, C, WAS Caps' Johansson Scores Two

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson Scores Two

News: Marcus Johansson scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's win over the Devils.
Analysis: He's been a goal-scoring machine lately, ripping off six in the last seven games, with three assists to boot. Marcus Johansson's on a career-best scoring pace, working well with Andre Burakovsky and Troy Brouwer on the Caps' second line.

Marcus Johansson, C, WAS Caps' Johansson Continues To Sizzle

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson Continues To Sizzle

News: Marcus Johansson picked up a goal and an assist in Friday's 3-2 road win over Chicago.
Analysis: The 24-year-old Swede is on quite the tear, rattling off six points in his last four games. Marcus Johansson is seeing time on the Caps' top power-play unit and skating on a capable second line with Andre Burakovsky and Troy Brouwer, so his stock is clearly on the rise. Keep an eye on him.

Marcus Johansson, C, WAS Caps' Johansson Nets Goal

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson Nets Goal

News: Marcus Johansson scored a game tying goal in the second period of Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Flames.
Analysis: It was more of a fluke than anything else, as Marcus Johansson fired it into the boards before the puck bounced off a skate and into the net, but it was his fifth of the season nonetheless. He now has four points in his last three contests, and appears well on his way to breaking his career high of 14 goals.

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson: Two-Point Effort In Loss

News: Marcus Johansson scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: But loss aside, he has three points in his last couple games and six, including four goals, in his last seven. Check your wire.

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson Scores Game-Winning Goal Thursday

News: Marcus Johansson scored the game-winning goal in Washington's 6-2 effort over visiting New Jersey.
Analysis: It was Marcus Johansson's second goal of the season and his second in consecutive games. Head coach Barry Trotz urged Johansson to shoot the puck more this season, and the former 24th overall pick in 2009 has heeded the new coach's message. Though he's not playing on the top line this season as he was last year, he seems to be forming good chemistry with rookie center Andre Burakovsky on the team's second unit and is getting work with the first power-play unit with the aforementioned Ovechkin and Backstrom. While he's playing well, Johansson may be worth a look in deeper leagues at this point.

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson Nabs First Point Of Season

News: Marcus Johansson finished with three shot attempts and his first goal of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Sharks.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson was one of the three Capitals to find the net during a four-and-a-half minute stretch of the second period. The 24-year-old was pushed out to left wing in training camp after coach Barry Trotz settled on Andre Burakovsky as his second-line center, but Johansson's output doesn't figure to diminish significantly with the transition.

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson To Move To Wing

News: Coach Barry Trotz said Marcus Johansson would move from center to wing this season, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: It appears Trotz has settled on talented rookie Evgeny Kuznetsov as his second-line center, resulting in the position change for Marcus Johansson, who lost out on the job battle. He could still see time on Kuznetsov's line as a left wing, which might enable to hit the 40-point mark for the second straight season.

Trotz: Kuznetsov and Johansson Are "Head To Head"

News: Capitals head coach Barry Trotz indicated Marcus Johansson and Evgeny Kuznetsov are going "head to head" for the second-line center position during a press conference prior to Monday night's preseason game against the Flyers.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson spent most of last season alongside Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on the team's top line, but the new regime seems to think Johansson could contend for the second-line center job. It's worth noting that Johansson has been handed that role before and failed to generate the kind of production needed to keep the job. Keep an eye on this battle through training camp, as Johansson needs to be on a scoring line to have much fantasy impact.

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson Ruled Out For Finale

News: Coach Adam Oates went ahead and ruled Marcus Johansson (upper body) out for Sunday's season finale against the Lightning, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: With the Capitals eliminated from playoff contention, it doesn't make much sense for the team to play Marcus Johansson while he's at less than full health. He'll have the entire offseason to recuperate from the injury he sustained Friday night. Johansson tallied eight goals and 36 assists over 80 games this season.

Caps' Johansson Suffers Upper-Body Injury

News: Marcus Johansson suffered an upper-body injury and will not return to Friday's game.
Analysis: The Washington Post's Katie Carrera indicated that the injury is a result of Marcus Johansson taking a shot off the hand/arm. For now, he can be considered questionable for the Caps' regular-season finale Sunday against Tampa Bay.

Marcus Johansson

Two Helpers For Caps' Johansson

News: Marcus Johansson picked up two assists and went plus-2 in Thursday's win over Carolina.
Analysis: On the downside, he lost 10 of his 12 faceoffs and is just 3-for-19 in the circle over the last two games. The talented 23-year-old has had his share of struggles -- he hasn't scored a goal since March and has just six assists in that 18-game span. And it's not like he's been concentrating on defense, either, as he's minus-11 in that span.

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson Reunited With Backstrom

News: Marcus Johansson skated on a line with Nicklas Backstrom and Troy Brouwer during Tuesday's practice, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson has moved back with fellow Swedish Olympian Backstrom on the team's second line. Johansson has only a power-play assist and four shots on net in the last four games, but as long as he's getting consistent looks with either Backstrom or Alex Ovechkin, he's worth a look in fantasy circles.

Marcus Johansson

Capitals' Johansson Back With Top Line

News: Marcus Johansson skated with Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin on the team's top line during Saturday's practice, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson has been centering the team's second line with newcomer Dustin Penner and Troy Brouwer in recent games. However, with Brooks Laich potentially out for Sunday's game against Toronto, head coach Adam Oates has shuffled the deck and reunited Johansson with the team's top guns. Johansson has put up decent numbers this season, but has gone cold of late with no points since the March 2 game against the Flyers. If past performance is any indication, Johansson's game should pick up if he can stick on the top line for a while. The Swedish Olympian's 30 assists are second only to countryman Nicklas Backstrom on the team lead, and he is third overall among point leaders for the Capitals.

Capitals' Johansson Picking Up Where He Left Off

News: Marcus Johansson has a goal and an assist in his two games since returning from the Sochi Olympics.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson missed the Capitals' post-Sochi debut against Florida due to a delayed return to DC due to a visa issue. The 23-year-old Swede is second on the Capitals with 30 assists this season. After turning in a silver medal-winning performance for Team Sweden in the Olympics, Johansson is centering the team's second line with Martin Erat and Troy Brouwer. With a goal and four assists in his last six games with the Caps, the dual-position Johansson could be a useful contributor down the stretch, and is worth owning in most fantasy formats.

Caps' Johansson Expects To Play Thursday

News: Marcus Johansson expects to play Thursday after missing the last few practices due to a visa issue, Mike Vogel of WashingtonCaps.com reports.
Analysis: The fact that Marcus Johansson stayed conditioned by playing for the Swedish team in the Olympics during the break is probably good enough for coach Adam Oates to feel comfortable using him Thursday. That being said, he skated on the fourth line at morning skate, and figures to see well below his average of 17:32 of ice time Thursday. Use him with caution in daily lineups.

Johansson Rejoins Caps

News: Marcus Johansson has rejoined the Capitals after resolving a visa issue.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson was on the ice for the team's morning skate, but the practice time he missed while playing for Team Sweden and in taking care of his visa may prompt coach Adam Oates to limit his ice time in Thursday's match vs. the Panthers.

Caps' Johansson Must Resolve Visa Issue

News: Marcus Johansson will travel to Stockholm to resolve a visa issue bit is expected back before the team travels to Florida for Thursday's game, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: An injury replacement to Team Sweden, Marcus Johansson's club fell short against Canada in the Gold Medal game Sunday. The 23-year-old must resolve a visa issue but barring an unforeseen complication, should be in uniform against the Panthers.

Capitals' Johansson Named To Team Sweden

News: Marcus Johansson has been named to Team Sweden as an injury replacement, Katie Carrera of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: With Vancouver Canucks center Henrik Sedin ruled out of the Sochi Games with a fractured rib, Marcus Johansson will get the call for the "Tre Kronor." While he doesn't possess the same level of chemistry the Sedin Brothers share, Johansson's experience playing alongside teammate Nicklas Backstrom, combined with his playmaking skills, should help offset the void left by Henrik Sedin's absence. A veteran of World Junior Championships, this will be Johansson's first appearance at the Winter Olympics. The 23-year-old Swede is in his fourth NHL campaign, and has seven goals and 29 assists in 58 games with the Capitals this season.

Capitals' Johansson Back On Top Line

News: Marcus Johansson was reunited with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on the team's top line during Saturday's practice, Mike Vogel of Monumental Network reports.
Analysis: After a brief stay as the third line center, Marcus Johansson is back with the team's top offensive talents following Friday's embarrassing 5-1 loss to Columbus. Johansson is having a solid campaign with seven goals and 25 assists in 48 games for the Caps this season. Playing alongside the likes of Ovechkin and Backstrom should ensure that trend continues.

Caps' Johansson Adds Some Assists

News: Marcus Johansson collected a pair of assists in Wednesday's loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson is now up to 25 assists on the season to go along with seven goals. He played alongside Jason Chimera in the game but also found Alex Ovechkin for a goal in the third period. He is a decent source of assists with relative consistency.

Capitals' Johansson Dishes Out Assists In Loss

News: Marcus Johansson ended a five-game scoring drought Monday against Carolina, picking up two assists in a 4-3 overtime loss.
Analysis: Despite the recent drought, the 23-year-old still has 27 points in 41 games on the season. He is currently playing alongside Nicklas Backstrom, meaning he is bound to put up more points.

Caps' Johansson Leaves With Injury

News: Marcus Johansson left Friday's game against the Hurricanes with a lower-body injury and will not return.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson netted a power-play goal in the second period for his fifth of the season. He left with an injury later in the game and should be considered day-to-day with the injury until more information is disclosed on his status.
