Johansen picked up a goal and an assist in Thursday's 2-0 victory over the Oilers.
He assisted on Viktor Arvidsson's goal early in the second and added an insurance tally late in the same frame. Despite missing the scoresheet in two straight games coming in, Johansen still has a shiny total of eight points (two goals, six assists) in his last six contests. The 24-year-old pivot's scoring has come in bursts this year, so he's been something of a boom-or-bust fantasy play, but he's still on pace to clear 60 points for the fourth straight campaign.
That's back-to-back multi-point outings for Johansen, who has piled on the assists this season. That was his first goal in over a month, but the former Blue Jacket still has 35 points in 47 games. The first-line center has been a force on the power play and is thriving alongside Filip Forsberg, so despite his low goal total, Johansen remains a valuable fantasy asset in most leagues.
Ryan Johansen posted a pair of assists - one on the power play - with a plus-2 in Friday's 3-2 shootout win in Edmonton.
Johansen hasn't scored a goal in 14 consecutive games, but that doesn't mean you should avoid him for fantasy purposes. He has nine assists during the span, and he ranks 24th in the NHL in faceoff wins to help in pools rewarding that category.
Johansen posted two assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 6-1 win over the Lightning.
He's got eight points in his last seven games, so Johansen's clipping along steadily, but only one of those was a goal. A 33-goal scorer in his first full NHL campaign, Johansen saw his total decline to 26 the following season, then just 14 last year; with just seven goals in 38 games this season, he still hasn't reversed the trend. Nonetheless, his bankable accumulation of helpers keeps his fantasy stock strong.
Johansen is producing at a point-per-game pace over his past nine, and is on track to top 60 for the fourth consecutive season. The 24-year-old center also has a positive plus/minus rating for the second straight season in Nashville after finishing negative in all but one of his four campaigns with the Blue Jackets.
