    Predators' Ryan Johansen: Delivers dominant performance in losing effort

    Johansen broke up a brief slump Thursday with a goal, an assist and a plus-2 rating in a 6-3 loss to Philadelphia. He also won 16 of 19 faceoffs. That adds up to a dominant effort from Johansen, but unfortunately, the Preds' other lines -- particularly the Mike Ribeiro-led second unit -- got undressed by the Flyers' offense. He'd been held off the board in three of the last four games coming in, but is still producing at a point-per-game pace since joining the Predators, and there's no reason he shouldn't be able to approximately maintain that pace down the stretch.

    Predators' Ryan Johansen: Adds two points in win

    Johansen picked up a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Jets. Johansen has thrived in head coach Peter Laviolette's open system since coming over from the Blue Jackets, and now has eight points in seven games with his new club. It looks like his jump in production due to the trade is not a fluke, so he should be considered an elite fantasy center for the rest of the season.

    Predators' Ryan Johansen: Notches three points in loss

    Johansen racked up a goal and two assists in Thursday's 5-4 OT loss to the Jets. Johansen continued his torrid pace with his new team, as he now has six points in four games since coming over to the Predators in exchange for blueliner Seth Jones. Johansen now has eight goals and 24 assists in 42 games on the season.

    Predators' Ryan Johansen: Lights the lamp in debut

    Johansen scored a power-play goal, had an assist, and went plus-2 against the Avalanche on Friday. This was Johansen's first game with the Predators, so clearly the return on investment, so far, is good. Of course, it's also only one game, but Johansen is certainly skilled.

    Predators' Ryan Johansen: Will make Preds debut Friday vs. Avs

    Johansen is expected to center the first line in his Predators debut against the Avalanche on Friday night, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Following a trade that brought him to Nashville from Columbus earlier this week, Johansen will look to rejuvenate his season with the Preds after falling out of favour with the Blue Jackets' head coach, John Tortorella. He'll be given every chance to re-establish himself as the player who broke out last season with 71 points in 82 games. Given a surrounding cast that includes the likes of Shea Weber, Roman Josi, Filip Forsberg, James Neal and Mike Ribeiro, we'd say there's a very good chance of that happening. Feel free to put him in your fantasy lineups right away, as the upside potential here is significant.

    Predators' Ryan Johansen: Dealt to the Predators

    Johansen was traded to the Predators in exchange for Seth Jones on Wednesday. A blockbuster deal for both sides of the equation, as the Predators will receive a 23-year-old former 33-goal scorer in Johansen, in exchange for a 21-year-old number-one defender of the future in Jones. Johansen simply did not have a sustainable relationship with Columbus head coach John Tortorella, making his departure from the club seem almost inevitable. Johansen's production has dipped a bit this season, but he'll immediately be tied with Filip Forsberg for the Predators' scoring lead among forwards with 26 points (six goals, 20 assists). The former first-round pick will slot into a top-six role with his new club, and will undoubtedly provide the Preds' with an offensive spark they've lacked all season.

    Blue Jackets' Ryan Johansen: Seals win over Caps in shootout

    Johansen had an assist in regulation before securing a win over the Capitals with a goal in the shootout stanza. Johansen fooled Capitals goalie Braden Holtby in the shootout frame by quickly skating toward him only to stop on a dime and casually flip the disc into the nylon. Johansen's poor relationship with Columbus coach John Tortorella is well documented, but this clutch performance against a high-flying Capitals team could bond the two, at least for the time being.

    Blue Jackets' Ryan Johansen: Held without a shot again

    Johansen had an assist and no shots in Tuesday's win over Dallas. It's been a weird year for a player many thought would really breakout in a big way. He has three assists in his last four games, but has twice been held without a shot. His ice time continues to plummet as well. He played just 12:24 on Tuesday.

    Blue Jackets' Ryan Johansen: Back at it Saturday

    Johansen will be in the lineup Saturday versus the Flyers, according to Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella, who had made him a healthy scratch for Thursday's contest in Arizona. Johansen's muddy relationship with Tortorella is well documented, but that's no solace for the countless fantasy owners and Columbus fans counting on the big center who notched 71 points last season. The term "healthy scratch" is an ugly one, especially when applied to a renowned star like Johansen, whose name is being included in various trade rumors. Of course, it's possible that Torts simply was trying to send Johansen the proverbial message. The Blue Jackets cannot afford to be too cute when dealing with the impact players since the team is sitting in the cellar with a 12-19-3 record in a Metropolitan Division that only has one other losing team in the Hurricanes (12-15-5).

    Blue Jackets' Ryan Johansen: Will be healthy scratch Thursday

    Johansen will serve as a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Coyotes, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports. Johansen appears to be having some issues with the new coaching staff, with coach John Tortorella indicating he will have a "reset" day Thursday. He probably won't be out of the lineup long, but the staff is apparently unhappy with the way he's been playing. Johansen's next chance to return will come Saturday against the Flyers, and it wouldn't be surprising if Johansen is back in the lineup at that point. There has been recent talks of the team potentially trading the 25-year-old forward, but nothing tangible has surfaced at this point.
