  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Expected to return Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/24/17) 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 | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/22/17) 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.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Almost back from broken leg

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/21/17) 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.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Practices for first time since injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/17) Johnson took part in practice Monday for the first time since breaking his leg on Dec. 3, the Denver Post reports.

    Unfortunately, fellow Avs blueliner Nikita Zadorov broke his ankle today during the same practice and is done for the year, which pretty much sums up how bad Colorado's luck has been this season. Johnson donned a red no-contact sweater but otherwise took drills at full speed, so there's a chance he could return later in the week -- potentially at Nashville on Thursday or at home Saturday versus the Sabres.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Placed on injured reserve

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/16) Johnson (leg) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

    This move to IR doesn't change Johnson's timeline but merely allows Colorado some flexibility with their roster moves. With the Avalanche dealing with multiple injuries to their defensive corps right now, the recently-acquired Cody Goloubef could become immediately useful.

    Coach Patrick Roy indicated that Johnson will miss the next 3-to-8 weeks after undergoing a knee scope.We'll look for a more precise timetable in the coming days, but either way, Johnson -- who has notched 23 points in 47 games to date -- is going to miss a decent chunk of time and is thus a candidate to head to the Avs' IR list.
