  • Johnson garnered a pair of assists in Monday's 4-2 loss to Calgary. The pair of apples snapped a 14-game point drought. It's been a rough season for the 2006 first-overall pick, as injuries have limited him to just 39 games and 14 points, so Johnson will make for an interesting bounce-back candidate in 2017-18.

  • Johnson (leg) is finally feeling good four games into his return after a long layoff due to injury, Ron Knabenbauer of NHL.com reports. Johnson was on the shelf for 36 games due to a broken leg. He is back and logging plenty of time time, and he now feels his legs are back and so is his timing. His best asset to fantasy owners is his ability to block shots, something he has been very good at doing over the years. However, the Avalanche rank dead-last in goal differential, so if your pool penalizes plus/minus rating he is not a recommended option.

  • Johnson (leg) is expected to play Saturday's game against the Sabres, per coach Jared Bednar. It's been a long time coming for Johnson and he finally appears ready to return from a 36-game absence after breaking his leg on Dec. 3. The Minnesota native could immediately slot into one of Colorado's top two defensive pairings, though it remains to see who his partner will be on the blue line.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Could return Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson (leg) is practicing fully and says he will be ready to play Saturday against the Sabres, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports. While it's difficult to take players at their own word since they generally overestimate their ability to get out there, Johnson has been rehabbing for months and the progress he's made to this point would seem to indicate that Saturday is in fact a realistic return date for him. The 28-year-old's return could provide a boost for rest of the players on team, though not enough for them to make the playoffs.

  • Johnson (leg) continues to make progress and coach Jared Bednar hopes to see him back soon, but he's unlikely to suit up for Tuesday's contest against the Kings. While it's great to hear that Johnson appears to be close to a return after such an extended absence, he likely won't be eligible to crack the lineup until he can log at least one full-contact practice. It's almost certainly too little too late for the Avs at this point, but Johnson's return could be significant for fantasy owners who were intrigued by his abilities to acquire assists early in the season.
