Johnson finished plus-2 with an assist in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Bruins. The assist came on Francois Beauchemin's deflected shot that got past Tuukka Rask late in the first period. The Avs offense appears on the verge of breaking out, so Johnson figures to get more chances to pitch in.
Johnson has recorded two goals and added one assist in 11 games this year. The former first overall pick was off to an impressive start last year when a knee injury took him out for a large portion of the season. Johnson started the 2015-16 season with a bang, however, tallying three points in the first two games. Since then, the anchor of the defense hasn't recorded a point while averaging 22 minutes of ice time.
