  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Hits scoresheet for second straight

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/12/16) Johnson lit the lamp on two shots in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Jets.

    Johnson came into Saturday's matchup without a goal in his last nine outings, notching just one helper in that span as well. However, that apple was last game, as the defenseman has now reached the scoresheet in two straight. Johnson has seven two-game point streaks on the year, but unfortunately, he hasn't been able to string together anything longer than that.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Scores two assists in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/5/16) Johnson scored two assists in a losing effort Thursday against Dallas.

    Johnson now has 20 points in 45 games this season, and since returning from his lower-body injury has four assists in his past four games. He remains a workhorse on the Avs blue line, playing 25:24 on the night and finished with a plus-2 rating. Johnson isn't the most offensively gifted but remains an all-round defenseman who can play in all situations. He doesn't have much upside but he's consistent, which makes him a fantasy asset worth considering.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Will play Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/22/16) Although he won't play Friday against St. Louis, Johnson (lower body) will return to action Saturday against the Stars.

    Johnson has been sidelined since Jan. 6 with a lower-body injury, but returned to practice Wednesday, which was the first indication that the 6-foot-4 blueliner was close to returning to Colorado's lineup. Johnson's return will serve as a huge boost to the Avlanche's defense corps, as he was averaging 23:30 of ice time before sustaining his lower-body ailment. The former first-round pick has tallied 16 points (seven goals, nine assists) in 40 games this season.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: returns to practice Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/20/16) Johnson participated in Wednesday's morning skate according to Head Coach Patrick Roy.

    Johnson had resumed skating activities back on Jan. 12 but this is the first time the defenseman has practiced with the team since sustaining a knee injury on Jan. 4. Now that Johnson has returned to practice, a return to the lineup can be expected sometime within the next week.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Placed on IR, can return when healthy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/13/16) Johnson (lower body) has landed on injured reserve retroactive to Jan. 4, per Avalanche coach Patrick Roy.

    Johnson will be able to return when healthy since the IR placement is retroactive to his last game played more than seven days ago. Roy added that the transaction "just gives us roster flexibility." With Johnson on the shelf and Nate Guenin reportedly on waivers, the team has called up Chris Bigras and Nikita Zadorov for extra depth on the blue line.

    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.
