  • Sabres' Chad Johnson: Heading back to Buffalo

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/17) Johnson signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract to return to the Sabres on Saturday, TSN reports.

    Johnson was briefly rendered property of the Coyotes in mid-June, when the Flames flipped the goalie, prospect Brandon Hickey and a conditional third-round pick for another netminder in Mike Smith. As fate would have it, Johnson returns to Buffalo; he recorded some of his best numbers (22-16-4 record, 2.36 GAA, .920 save percentage) for the Swords in 2015-16, when starting backstop Robin Lehner was bogged down by a high-ankle sprain. While there should be some level of comfort for Johnson in his return to Buffalo, it's worth noting that the Sabres have since replaced general manager Tim Murray with Jason Botterill, while Phil Housley -- not Dan Blysma -- will be the coach behind the bench. Johnson is a nice insurance policy for Lehner, who's battled injures in the past, and could see upwards of 20 to 25 starts. Fantasy owners who have Lehner on their roster may want to add Johnson as a handcuff, and it's also worth noting that Botterill has beefed up the Sabres' blue line with Nathan Beaulieu and Marco Scandella this offseason.

    Coyotes' Chad Johnson: Traded to Arizona

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/17/17) The Flames traded Johnson, prospect Brandon Hickey and a conditional third-round pick to the Coyotes in exchange for Mike Smith on Saturday, TSN reports.

    The Flames will hope that the addition of Mike Smith will solve their goaltending woes in 2017-18, and the Coyotes will likely have Johnson split starts with Louis Domingue if they're able to sign him to a new deal before he becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1. The 31-year-old Johnson posted an 18-15-1 record while maintaining a 2.59 GAA and .910 save percentage through 36 appearances with Calgary last season.

    Flames' Chad Johnson: Will join Canada for Worlds

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/28/17) Johnson will take part in the 2017 IIHF World Championship, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports.

    Johnson will likely be eager to get onto the ice considering the Flames used him for just two periods during their brief Stanley Cup playoffs appearance. On the year, the netminder posted an 18-15-1 record -- including a trio of shutouts -- along with a .910 save percentage. Once he is done representing his country, the 30-year-old will probably turn his focus to next season as he looks for a new contract -- which may or may not be with Calgary.

    Flames' Chad Johnson: Available as backup Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/15/17) Johnson (lower body) will serve in a backup capacity for Saturday's Game 2 against the Ducks, Wes Gilbertson of Postmedia reports.

    It was Brian Elliott who took the loss for the Flames in the series opener Thursday, but he'll be given a chance for redemption as the starter in the last of the four playoff games scheduled Saturday. Johnson hasn't played since sustaining his lower-body ailment -- coincidentally against the Ducks -- on April 4.

    Flames' Chad Johnson: Won't dress for Game 1

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/12/17) Johnson (lower body) will be inactive for Thursday's Game 1 against the Ducks, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.

    Johnson traveled with the team to Anaheim, suggesting he's nearly ready to play. However, that return won't arrive Thursday, with Jon Gillies instead serving that role behind veteran Brian Elliott. We could still see Johnson later in the series, especially if Elliott's late-season struggles between the pipes continue into the playoffs.
