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.

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.

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.

Caps' Johansson Starting To Streak Again

News: Marcus Johansson, who busted a four-game scoreless streak Tuesday with a goal and an assist, repeated the feat Thursday in a win over Minnesota.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson's season numbers are still strong, largely on the merit of all the assists he's collected as the third wheel to Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom.

Caps' Johansson Slowing Down

News: Marcus Johansson has been held pointless in his last four games.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson left practice on October 25th with general soreness and has been cold ever since. His ice time has not decreased and there is no visible indication that he is physically injured. Johansson had a point in six of his first 10 games but has been flashing goose eggs since.

Caps' Johansson Leaves Friday's Practice Early

News: Marcus Johansson left Friday's practice with general soreness, the Washington Post's Katie Carrera reports.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson is just feeling some residual stiffness and soreness from Thursday night, but is expected to be good to go for Saturday's start against the Flames. Jay Beagle filled in on the first line with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom after Johansson left the ice during practice.

Caps' Johansson Gets Another Two Assists

News: Marcus Johansson assisted on goals by Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom in Thursday's win over Edmonton. He went plus-2, but didn't take a shot on goal.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson's only shot the puck on net 10 times in 10 games this year, but fantasy owners aren't complaining, as he's averaging an assist per game. The line with him, Ovechkin and Backstrom may be the highest-flying trio in the NHL, so Johansson will likely break through with some goals soon along continuing to pile up assists.

Caps' Johansson Collects Two More Helpers

News: Marcus Johansson picked up two assists on Alexander Ovechkin goals in Tuesday's win over Winnipeg.
Analysis: He's been quite the assistant early on this year, collecting eight helpers in nine games. As long as he's playing the wing opposite Ovechkin, Marcus Johansson's a good bet to pile up plenty of assists, and the goals should start coming too now that he's starting to shoot more.

Caps' Johansson Racking Up Points

News: Marcus Johansson has five points on five assists through his first six games of the season.

Caps' Johansson Will Start On Top Line

News: Marcus Johansson will start the season on the left wing on the Capitals' top line, according to CSNWashington.com. "He's got a great opportunity to start with two great hockey players," coach Adam Oates said.
Analysis: That means he'll toil with Alexander Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom with whom he displayed great chemistry last season. He had six goals and 16 assists in 21 games with Backstrom and Ovechkin, a rate that would have given him a remarkable 74 points over a full 82-game sked. Move him up your draft list right now.

Capitals Re-Sign Johansson To Two-Year Deal

News: Marcus Johansson re-signed with the Capitals on a two-year, $4 million contract Saturday.
Analysis: The 22-year-old recorded 22 points in 34 games last season and is expected to receive an expanded role offensively in 2013-14, as he's viewed as the frontrunner to join Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on the Capitals' first line. Playing regularly with those kinds of talent could set him up for a big season.
