Johansson Inks One-Year Deal With Capitals

News: Marcus Johansson signed a one-year, $3.75 million contract with the Capitals on Friday, James Mirtle of TSN 1050 Radio reports.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson was a solid offensive contributor for the Capitals in 2014-15, racking up 47 points (20 goals, 27 assists) in 82 games, good for fourth best on the team. He will return to his role as a top-six forward with Washington this season, and will likely continue to be a part of the Capitals' top power-play unit. The 24-year-old is a versatile winger who, barring injury, should be similarly productive this season.

Caps' RFA Johansson Files For Salary Arbitration

News: Marcus Johansson filed for salary arbitration on Sunday, and will have his hearing heard during the arbitration period from July 20th to August 4th, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: If the case goes before the arbiter, Marcus Johansson will take a contract extension with a maximum of two years. While the filing is indicative of disagreement between Johansson's camp and the Capitals about a new contract, there is still a very good chance the two sides will get a deal done before the case is heard. A fixture in the Capitals top-six last season, Johansson has a career-high of 20 goals and 47 points in 82 games. The arrival of T.J. Oshie and Justin Williams may complicate Johansson's deployment in next season's lineup, but general manager Brian MacLellan has made it clear he wants to keep Johansson with the team beyond next season. Keep an eye on the situation as it unfolds.

Caps' Johansson Given Qualifying Offer

News: The Capitals extended a qualifying offer to Marcus Johansson on Friday, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: In doing so, the Capitals will retain Marcus Johansson's rights while they continue to negotiate a contract extension for the 24-year-old restricted free agent, who finished last season with 20 goals and 47 points in 82 games playing mostly on the team's second line.

Johansson Gets Assist As Caps Are Eliminated

News: Marcus Johansson recorded an assist on Alex Ovechkin's goal in the Capitals' Game 7 loss to the Rangers on Wednesday night.
Analysis: Right-wing duties on the Capitals' top line next to Ovechkin and Niklas Backstrom have fallen to Joel Ward for much of the postseason, but Marcus Johansson received a trial there in Game 7 and was able to capitalize. It still seems rather unlikely that he'll open the 2015-16 season with a top-line role in tow, though Johansson should at least be a factor in the conversation after delivering career-best marks across the board during the past regular season. He finished with 20 goals, 27 assists, and a plus-6 rating while playing in all 82 games for the first time.

Caps' Johansson Helps Out In Game 5

News: Marcus Johansson notched a pair of assists, a plus-2 rating and four hits in Thursday's Game 5 victory over the Islanders.
Analysis: The points are his first of the series since a Game 1 goal. Marcus Johansson looks to be well over the lower-body injury that forced him to leave practice earlier this week.

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson (Lower Body)

News: Head coach Barry Trotz said Marcus Johansson (lower body) is "good to go" and should be in the lineup for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Islanders, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson exited Monday's practice after he exacerbated an injury suffered during Sunday's 2-1 overtime loss in Game 3, but he was deemed fine after returning to the ice for a skate Tuesday morning. Look for him to slot in on the Capitals' second line.

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson (Upper Body) Exits Practice

News: Marcus Johansson (upper body) left Monday's practice early and is questionable for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Islanders, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson was nicked by an errant skate blade during Sunday's Game 3, and his exit from Monday's practice was related to that pre-existing injury. Already without the services of Eric Fehr (upper body), the Capitals can ill afford to lose another forward, particularly the versatile Johansson, who logs lots of minutes on their vaunted power play.

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson Scores In Loss

News: Marcus Johansson scored his team's lone goal in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson was able to tie the game at one late in the first period, but that turned out to be all the offense the Caps would be able to muster. He finished the regular season with 20 goals and 27 assists in 82 games, and should be a productive fantasy player as long as the Caps remain in the playoffs.

Marcus Johansson, LW, WAS Caps' Johansson Posts Goal, Assist Wednesday

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson Posts Goal, Assist Wednesday

News: Marcus Johansson racked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Bruins.
Analysis: The winger now has 20 goals and 27 assists in 81 games on the season, putting him at a new high in points with 47 this year. He also has four points in his last four games, and could be an underrated fantasy asset come playoff time.

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson Grabs Assist Thursday

News: Marcus Johansson tallied an assist during Washington's 5-4 overtime win against Montreal on Thursday.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson assisted on the first of Joel Ward's two goals, and is on a bit of a tear of late with a goal and four assists in his last five games. With fellow countryman Nicklas Backstrom as the playmaker for Johansson and Troy Brouwer on the second line, the 23-year-old Swede should close out the 2014-2015 regular season on a high note, and is worth adding if available.

Caps' Johansson Tallies Two Assists Saturday

News: Marcus Johansson grabbed two assists in Washington's 4-3 loss to the Predators on Saturday.
Analysis: The assists give the 23-year-old Swede three points in his last two games. Now on the team's second line with Evgeny Kuznetsov and Troy Brouwer, the pending restricted free agent will hope to keep the production coming as the Capitals suddenly find themselves in danger of losing a once safe wild card position in the Eastern Conference playoff race. They will be in action again on Sunday.

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson Tallies Assist On Thursday

News: Marcus Johansson had an assist on Karl Alzner's goal during Washington's 3-2 OT win over New Jersey on Thursday.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson has just a goal and two assists in his last eight games despite getting prominent ice time at even strength and on the power play. Nevertheless, the 25-year-old forward gets enough playing time with skilled teammates like Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom where he still has some sleeper value in the final weeks of the season.

Caps' Johansson Practices On Top Line (Again)

News: Marcus Johansson spent Wednesday's practice on a line with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Yes, the "right wing by committee" approach continues in the nation's capital. Marcus Johansson will get another crack with the Art Ross candidates, but with Tom Wilson on the active roster, Andre Burakovsky a recall away, and Jay Beagle (upper-body) nearing a return, it's impossible to forecast who (if anyone) will stick on the right side of the top line for more than a game or so. Still, as always, Johansson's current place on that line gives him more than enough value to warrant adding to your lineup if you have the patience to withstand the constant shuffling of that portion of the depth chart.

Caps' Johansson Nets Goal In Saturday's Win

News: Marcus Johansson netted his 17th goal of the season in Washington's 6-1 victory over Buffalo on Saturday.
Analysis: Adding to his career year in terms of goal scoring, Marcus Johansson has been making the most of a recent promotion to the top line, as he has three goals in his last four games after scoring just four goals through the first two months of 2015. If he can fend off challengers to the coveted right wing spot alongside Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, and end Washington's "Right Wing By Committee" approach in recent weeks, he has some terrific late-season fantasy potential, especially if he earns triple-eligibility as a RW, as he's already dual-eligible in many formats.

Caps' Johansson Adds Goal In Win

News: Marcus Johansson picked up a power-play goal in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: After being stuck at 14 for six games, Marcus Johansson broke his old career-best mark with his 15th goal of the season. The 24-year-old has been ticking along at a fairly consistent pace, and needs just 10 points in the team's last 18 games to match his 46-point total from three seasons ago.

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson Comes Along For Ride Thursday

News: Marcus Johansson picked up a pair of power-play assists Thursday in a 5-1 win over the Jets.
Analysis: He came along for the ride on this offensive outburst, notching secondary helpers on goals by John Carlson and Nicklas Backstrom. Though he's had a productive campaign, having notched a respectable 35 points, Marcus Johansson hadn't had a multi-point game since way back on Jan. 7. He's also largely avoided lengthy slumps, so there's a bit of a tradeoff there.

Marcus Johansson

Caps' Johansson Skates On Top Line

News: Marcus Johansson took line rushes with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom during Tuesday's morning skate, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Marcus Johansson has been playing predominantly on the Capitals' second line, so the shift is definitely a promotion as head coach Barry Trotz looks to shake up the lineup following almost three weeks of underwhelming performance by the Capitals. With just three goals in his last 14 games, the Capitals are hoping the change of scenery will jump-start Johansson, who enjoyed a 44-point campaign playing alongside Ovechkin and Backstrom for the balance of the 2013-2014 season. His short=term value certainly gets a boost with the new assignment, and like the other seven wingers who have played with Ovechkin and Backstrom this season, has legitimate fantasy value as long as he's on the top line.

Caps' Johansson Goes Plus-2, Gets Assist

News: Marcus Johansson captured an assist and went plus-2 over his 15:36 of ice time Tuesday versus the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Though his shot totals have dwindled from the number of attempts he was putting up earlier this season, Marcus Johansson has been able to deliver a productive January. Over 11 games this month, he's provided three goals and four assists, bringing him point total up to 28 for the season. He remains on track to surpass his previous season-best of 46 points, established in 2011-12.

Caps' Johansson Scores Twice In Win

News: Marcus Johansson tallied two goals in Wednesday's 6-2 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: The center now has 12 goals and 12 assists through 39 games on the season, including four points in his last five games.

Caps' Johansson Extends Point Streak

News: Marcus Johansson bagged his 10th goal of the season in Saturday's win over the Penguins.
Analysis: The winger is now riding a three-game point streak to salvage what has largely been a quiet month of December. Prior to starting the streak, he had just two points in his previous 10 games, and hadn't found the net since Nov. 29. It looks like he's finally starting to rediscover his offense again.

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).

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.

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.
