Player Outlook

Marcus Johansson spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Capitals and had just signed a new contract last summer, but with the club looking to clear cap space ahead of the 2017-18 season, he got shipped off to New Jersey for a pair of 2018 draft picks. That seems like a light price for a winger coming off a career year in which he netted 24 goals, 58 points and a plus-25 rating -- all personal bests -- so it's a good win for the Devils. He won't have the fortune of seeing time with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on the power play anymore, but playing opposite Taylor Hall isn't a bad consolation prize, and the Devils have a pair of rising young centers in Pavel Zacha and Nico Hischier. Another season of 50-plus points seems quite achievable.

  • Devils' Marcus Johansson: Traded to New Jersey
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johansson (finger) was traded to the Devils from the Capitals on Sunday in exchange for a second and third round pick in the 2018 draft. The move comes shortly after the Caps re-signed Evgeny Kuznetsov to a contract that left them with very little cap room to round out their roster. Drafted 24th overall in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Johansson had spent his entire career with the Capitals having amassed 102 goals and 290 points in 501 career games in D.C. The 26-year-old forward had a breakout campaign in 2016-17 with 58 points in 82 games. It's reasonable to expect a slight regression in 2017-18 given that he will no longer be working on a vaunted power-play unit, but Johansson should still have a large enough role to turn in another solid campaign.

  • Johansson (finger) will not be exposed for the upcoming expansion draft, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. The Swedish winger had his best season yet, potting 24 goals and adding 34 helpers in 82 games. What is most impressive is his monstrous plus-25 rating, showing he can play on both ends of the ice. Being only 26 years of age, combined with a fair cap hit of just over $4.5 million, it shouldn't come as a surprise that he'll be staying with the Caps for now.

  • Johansson (finger) totaled 24 goals and 58 points along with a plus-25 rating -- all career highs -- in 82 games during the regular season, adding eight points in 13 playoff contests. The 25-year-old inked a three-year, $13.75 million deal last summer and responded with his best NHL campaign. Firmly entrenched as a top-six forward, the 2009 first-round pick is a power-play weapon (19 points this year) who's coming into his own as an even-strength scorer.

  • Johansson (finger) will not play at the IIHF World Championship, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. It isn't clear when the Swedish winger suffered the injury, although he was notably ineffective in Washington's final two games, so it's likely he was dealing with the ailment by that point. Check back for further updates as the offseason progresses, but there's no indication at this point that his availability for the start of 2016-17 is in any jeopardy.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Bags apple in Game 4
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johansson set up an even-strength goal in Wednesday's Game 4 road loss to the Penguins. The fleet-footed Swede was credited with a secondary helper on Evgeny Kuznetsov's fourth goal of these playoffs. Fantasy owners of Johansson in survivor pools find themselves in a perilous position, as the Capitals must win the next three games against the defending Stanley Cup champions in order to advance to the conference finals.
