  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Gets on scoresheet with assist

    Johnson logged an assist and two hits in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Johnson had gone 20 games without a point, his last contribution being an assist Jan. 10 versus the Kraken. The defenseman set up J.T. Compher for the game-tying goal Saturday. Johnson has eight points, 38 shots on net, 55 hits, 44 blocked shots, 34 PIM and a plus-8 rating in 49 appearances. He's a bottom-four defenseman with more physicality than offense, so he's not going to carry much appeal in fantasy.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Logs helper in return

    Johnson notched an assist and went plus-2 in Monday's 4-3 win over the Kraken.

    Johnson missed the last two games with a lower-body injury, but he was able to make an impact in his 13:18 of ice time in his return. The veteran defenseman had a hand in the second of Nicolas Aube-Kubel's tallies in the contest. Johnson had gone five games without a point prior to his injury. The 34-year-old is at seven points, 27 hits, 27 blocked shots, 26 PIM and a plus-6 rating in 28 appearances overall. He's unlikely to see more than a third-pairing role going forward.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Returning to action Monday

    Johnson (lower body) will participate in Monday's contest with the Kraken, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Johnson has been shelved for the last two Colorado contests with a lower-body injury. The 34-year-old defenseman averaged 15:20 of ice time, blocked 14 shots and tallied four assists through his previous 11 appearances.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Still sidelined

    Johnson (lower body) won't play Saturday against the Maple Leafs, but he's getting close to a return, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Johnson will miss a second straight contest Saturday, but he should be ready to rejoin the lineup sooner rather than later. The 34-year-old vet has picked up six points through 27 appearances this season.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Ruled out for Thursday

    Johnson (lower body) will not play Thursday against Winnipeg, per Kate Shefte of the Denver Gazette.

    Johnson averaged 16:09 of ice time and tallied four assists through his 10 appearances prior to Tuesday's game, which he exited early with an injury. Details regarding the severity of the injury and his expected timeline for recovery are still undisclosed.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Suffers lower-body injury

    Johnson (lower body) won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Blackhawks.

    The nature of Johnson's injury is unknown, but he was ruled out for the remainder of the game during the third period. The 34-year-old logged 7:01 of ice time during the contest. His status for Thursday versus the Jets is likely day-to-day until more information becomes available.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Manages helper Friday

    Johnson put up an assist and went plus-2 in Friday's 7-3 win over the Red Wings.

    Johnson has provided four assists in six games in December. The 34-year-old is up to six points, 16 shots on net, 23 hits, 26 blocked shots, 24 PIM and a plus-3 rating. He'll stick in the lineup as long as the Avalanche keep deploying seven defensemen, but he's not much of a factor in fantasy.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Adds assist in loss

    Johnson had one assist, two hits and two blocked shots in Saturday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Senators.

    Johnson was part of a sequence that led to Tyson Jost's goal early in the third period that closed the gap to 5-4. It was Johnson's second point in the last three games. With Bowen Byram (head) and Cale Makar (upper body) unavailable, Johnson will be part of the active lineup as long as those two are out action.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Returns to duty

    Johnson had an assist, two hits and finished minus-3 over 13:31 of ice time in Wednesday's 8-3 loss to Toronto.

    Johnson, who was a healthy scratch Sunday when Bowen Byram returned from injury, entered Wednesday's lineup after the Avalanche placed Ryan Murray (lower body) on injured reserve for what is an undetermined length of time. He had the secondary helper on the goal that cut Toronto's lead to 3-2, but defensive breakdowns and some soft goals killed Colorado's momentum. He and Kurtis MacDermid should fill in on the third pair for as along as Murray is sidelined.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Makes way for Byram

    Johnson was a healthy scratch for Saturday's 6-2 win over Nashville.

    Johnson sat out his second game of the season in order to create a spot on the active roster for Bowen Byram, who returned from a head injury. Johnson might be back in the lineup for the start of a road trip Wednesday in Toronto, as Ryan Murray left Saturday's contest after just 11 seconds of ice time with a lower-body injury.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Produces assist in win

    Johnson notched an assist and two blocked shots in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Sharks.

    Johnson had the secondary helper on Nazem Kadri's first-period tally Saturday. The 34-year-old Johnson is up to two points, 13 hits, nine blocked shots, a plus-2 rating and 24 PIM in 11 contests. He'd probably be best suited as a rotational option on the third pairing, but the Avalanche have seemingly always had at least one blueliner injured to keep Johnson in the lineup.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Returns to lineup

    Johnson had one blocked shot over 12:18 of ice time in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to Washington.

    Johnson returned to the lineup after missing one game due to a positive test for COVID-19. He took a puck to the face at one point during the game and needed treatment, which skewed his playing time downward.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: In lineup Tuesday

    Johnson (not injury related) will suit up against the Capitals on Tuesday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    While Johnson did manage to put one into the netting in the season opener, fantasy players shouldn't be expecting this to be the new normal for the blueliner considering he hasn't reached the five-goal threshold in any of the last four seasons. As such, the Indianapolis native shouldn't be counted upon to provide much in the way of fantasy production.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Cleared to travel

    Johnson has been cleared to travel with the team ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Washington.

    Johnson missed the Avs' matchup with the Blues on Saturday after entering the league's COVID-19 protocols but should be in the mix to rejoin the lineup as early as Tuesday's clash. If Johnson's game fitness is up to speed, he will likely replace Kurtis MacDermid on the blue line.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Tests negative, could play soon

    Johnson tested negative for COVID-19 on Saturday, per Peter Baugh of The Athletic. He needs to test negative again to be able to travel with the team on its three-game road trip.

    Colorado has road games Tuesday (Washington), Thursday (Florida) and Saturday (Tampa Bay), so Johnson could end up playing at some point on the trip if he tests negative again. Further clarification should be provided on the veteran rearguard's status in advance of Tuesday's puck drop against the Capitals.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Johnson entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols on Saturday, Adrian Dater of reports.

    Johnson evidently tested positive for COVID-19, so he'll likely be sidelined for a while. With Johnson on the shelf, look for Kurtis MacDermid to enter the Avalanche's lineup for Saturday's game versus St. Louis.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Strong start with new team

    Johnson scored a goal on two shots and doled out four hits in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Blackhawks.

    Johnson needed just 4:26 into the first game of the season to get loose for a breakaway goal. The Avalanche didn't look back after that. The 34-year-old was able to turn a tryout offer into a contract, and now it appears he'll at least fill a bottom-pairing role with penalty-killing duties in 2021-22. Johnson hasn't topped 20 points since 2016-17 with the Blue Jackets, so even his usually strong totals in hits and blocked shots likely won't be enough to attract attention from fantasy managers.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Signing anticipated

    Johnson is expected to sign a contract with Colorado, Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports. The signing could come as soon as Sunday but may not be officially announced until Monday.

    Johnson was part of the Avalanche's training camp, working under a professional tryout agreement. He appeared in five of six preseason games, including Saturday's preseason finale against the Stars, in which he was plus-2 over 18 minutes of ice time. The contract is expected to be for one season in the $1 million range.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Signs deal with Colorado

    Johhnson signed a one-year, $750,000 deal with the Avalanche on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Johnson is entering his age-35 season and put up just a lone point (a goal) in 13 games with the Rangers last season. He'll provide veteran leadership to a young and talented Avalanche defense corps, but Johnson isn't likely to play or contribute consistently enough to regain fantasy relevance.

  • Avalanche's Jack Johnson: Secures tryout

    Johnson (abdomen) will link up with Colorado on a professional tryout agreement, per CapFriendly.

    Johnson logged just 13 games for the Rangers last year, registering one goal, 13 shots and 30 hits while averaging just 16:58 of ice time. If the 34-year-old blueliner manages to parlay his tryout into a permanent contract, he'd likely serve as a depth option that spends time as a healthy scratch.
