  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Posts assist in big win

    Johnson notched an assist and went plus-3 in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Rangers.

    Johnson saw Mikko Rantanen tip in a goal at 13:25 of the third period, which concluded the scoring Wednesday. With three points in his last two games, Johnson continues to be involved in the offense on occasion. The 33-year-old blueliner has 10 points (two while shorthanded), 46 shots on net, 48 hits, 38 blocked shots and a plus-12 rating in 23 contests overall.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Scores shortie

    Johnson had a shorthanded goal and a full-strength assist in Monday's 7-5 win over the Flyers. He finished with three shots, one hit and two blocked shots in the win.

    Johnson was part of a 2-on-1 rush with Logan O'Connor and finished off a feed by going top shelf on Martin Jones for Colorado's first goal of the game. It was the 33-year-old defenseman's third goal and first shortie of the season.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Slings helper

    Johnson recorded an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Predators.

    Johnson has collected a goal and three assists in his last seven games. The veteran defenseman logged 20:12 of ice time Saturday after Ryan Murray left the game with a lower-body injury. Through 18 outings overall, Johnson has seven points, a plus-9 rating, 37 shots on net, 38 hits and 34 blocks. The well-rounded non-scoring production could be useful in deep fantasy formats.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Helps finish off Ducks

    Johnson had an assist, three shots on goal, one hit and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Ducks.

    Johnson started a rush from Colorado's end, feeding Andre Burakovsky, who handled the puck up the middle of the ice into the offensive end and laid it off to Valeri Nichushkin for the Avalanche's final goal of the night. It was the third point in the last five games for Johnson, who is part of a blue-line crew that's providing pop during Colorado's six-game win streak. The 33-year-old defenseman has six points over 16 games.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Scores in lopsided win

    Johnson scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Friday's 7-3 win over the Kraken.

    Johnson made it a 6-0 lead for the Avalanche late in the second period. The 33-year-old blueliner has picked up five points in 14 contests this season. He's added 27 shots on net, 30 hits, 27 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating while playing in a bottom-four role.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Takes shorthanded helper

    Johnson logged a shorthanded assist, four shots on goal, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Sharks.

    Johnson helped out on Logan O'Connor's goal in the second period. The 33-year-old Johnson has picked up just one goal and three helpers through 12 contests this season, mainly playing in a bottom-four role. He's added 27 hits, 21 blocked shots, a plus-6 rating and 24 shots on net, so he could have some fantasy value in deeper formats for his decent category coverage.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: One of each in win

    Johnson scored a goal on three shots, dished an assist, blocked five shots and added two hits in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Wild.

    It was a rare offensive outburst for Johnson, who is much more known for his work in the defensive zone. He scored what was the game-winning goal at 17:34 of the second period and added a helper on Gabriel Landeskog's empty-netter in the third. Through eight contests, Johnson has three points, 13 shots on net, 17 hits, 13 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating. He's mainly played on the second pairing, but the 33-year-old's fantasy value is likely limited to deep formats.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Sends assist Wednesday

    Johnson registered an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-3 rating in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Blackhawks.

    The 33-year-old defenseman was limited to just one assist in four games last year as an upper-body injury cost him most of the season. Now fully healthy again, Johnson appears set to regain a second-pairing role. The Minnesota native isn't much of a scoring threat from the back end, but he could push for 20 points with solid hit and blocked-shot totals if he remains healthy.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Healthy and ready to go

    According to coach Jared Bednar, Johnson (upper body) is "healthy and ready to go," NHL.com's Rick Sadowski reports.

    Johnson was limited to just four games last season due to an upper-body injury, but he appears to be finally healthy and ready to rock ahead of Colorado's training camp. If he's able to stay healthy, Johnson should see regular bottom-four usage this season.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Takes twirl before practice

    Johnson (upper body) skated ahead of Sunday's optional morning skate, Arielle Orsuto of 9NEWS Denver reports.

    Johhson hasn't played since Jan. 30 after presumably suffering a conussion and still isn't expected to return this postseason. That said, his presence on skates should provide a morale boost to his teammates given that he's the longest-tenured member of the club and provides plenty of veteran savvy and leadership. Colorado opens its Round 2 series against Vegas on Sunday.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Hasn't started skating

    Johnson (upper body) has yet to resume skating and isn't expected to return during the playoffs, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Johnson will thus finish the 2020-21 campaign having picked up one assist in just four regular-season appearances. At this point it isn't clear if Johnson will be fully recovered in time for next year's training camp.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Expected to miss regular season

    Johnson (upper body) is expected to miss the remainder of the regular season, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.

    Johnson has been out since January with an upper-body issue. He appeared in just four games this season, tallying one assist and a plus-2 rating. It's unclear if Colorado expects him to return in the postseason or not.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Moves to long-term IR

    Johnson (upper body) was placed on long-term injured reserve Saturday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Johnson has been out for five weeks already, and he isn't expected to return any time soon. This move allows the Avalanche to spend over the salary cap in his absence.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Lands on injured reserve

    Johnson (upper body) was designated for injured reserve Friday.

    Considering Johnson has already missed nearly two weeks with his upper-body issue, he'll be eligible to be activated as soon as he is ready. The move will allow the Avalanche to activate Devon Toews (foot), who figures to jump into a top-four assignment.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Deemed week-to-week

    Johnson (upper body) is considered week-to-week with his upper-body issue, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Johnson joins a long list of injured Avalanche players that includes Nathan MacKinnon (lower body), Pavel Francouz (lower body), Devon Toews (lower body), Pierre-Edouard Bellemare (knee) and Matt Calvert (upper body). Although Colorado has yet to release a specific timetable, it wouldn't be surprising to see Johnson end up on injured reserve if he's expected to miss a week or more. The 32-year-old blueliner has picked up one assist through four games this campaign.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Expected to miss Sunday

    Johnson (upper body) is not expected to suit up for Sunday's tilt with Minnesota, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Johnson left Saturday's game against the Wild after taking a hit from Jordan Greenway and was unable to return. The 32-year-old blueliner is questionable for Tuesday's game against Minnesota for now.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Departs in first period

    Johnson exited Saturday's game against the Wild in the first period with an upper-body injury, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Johnson logged just 3:21 of ice time before leaving after taking a hard hit from Wild forward Jordan Greenway. His head hit the ice, so he could be examined for a concussion. If Johnson doesn't return, it's unclear if he'll be back in action Sunday against the Wild. Should he be unable to go Sunday, then expect Greg Pateryn to be called up from the taxi squad.

  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Active in own end

    Johnson had one shot on goal, four hits and three blocked shots over a season-high 19:34 of ice time in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Sharks.

    Johnson appears to be getting his groove back after dealing with the effects of COVID-19, which has limited him to three games. Thursday's effort was the most activity from the veteran blueliner, who also logged 4:23 on the penalty-kill unit.
