  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Logs assist in win

    Johansen had an assist, one shot and three hits in Thursday's 5-0 win over Chicago.

    The entire line played a part in the goal on which Johansen assisted. Jonathan Drouin controlled a loose puck and fed Johansen, who's shot from the side of net slid along the goal line where Zach Parise banged it home. Johansen's play has improved recently, and the center had 15:27 TOI on Thursday, his most in eight games. He's recorded two goals and three assists during that eight-game stretch.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Scores twice in win

    Johansen scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's 3-1 victory over the Canucks.

    Johansen evened the score at 1-1 early in the second period, backhanding a rebound off the boards past Thatcher Demko for his first goal in 21 outings. The 31-year-old center would add a second tally in the final frame, the eventual game-winner in a 3-1 Colorado victory. Johansen now has four points (two goals, two assists) in his last four contests following an eight-game scoring drought. He's up to 13 goals and 22 points through 57 appearances while working in a bottom-six role with the Avalanche.

    Johansen had an assist and won nine of 15 faceoffs over 13:26 of ice time in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Coyotes.

    Following a recent swing on the fourth line, Johansen returned to the third line and helped on a Jack Johnson tally that tied the game at 2-2. It was the second assist in three games for Johansen, whose 23 shifts were the most he's had in the seven games since the All-Star break.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Dropped to fourth line

    Johansen had an assist and one block over 9:30 of ice time in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Capitals.

    Johansen had the primary assist on Devon Toews' tally early in the first period. The helper snapped an eight-game point drought for Johansen, who was signed by Colorado to be the team's answer as the second-line center. Things haven't worked out so well. He was recently demoted to the third line and skated on the fourth line Tuesday. Johansen's last goal came Dec. 29, 18 games ago.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Picks up helper in win

    Johansen had an assist, two shots on net and one hit over 15:16 of ice time in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Johansen had the primary assist on Ross Colton's empty-net goal, which iced the game and completed Colorado's comeback from a 3-0 deficit. Johansen has two points over the last three games, as the center attempts to fight off a slump. Since scoring twice against the Lightning on Nov. 27, Johansen has just two goals and five assists over the last 22 games.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Season-low TOI

    Johansen had a season-low 9:34 of ice time in Wednesday's 3-0 win over Vegas.

    Johansen was recently moved to the third line amid a production drop off. The 31-year-old center has only two goals and four assists over the last 21 games. The one thing that could keep Johansen relevant is his work at the dot -- he's won 55 percent of his faceoffs, which tops Colorado.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Gathers helper in shootout win

    Johansen posted an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Monday's 4-3 shootout win over the Bruins.

    Johansen set up Sam Malinski's second-period marker. The helper snapped a three-game slump for Johansen, who continues to see limited ice time in a third-line role after swapping places with Ross Colton. Johansen is at 16 points, 57 shots on net, 30 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 41 appearances this season.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Set to play Thursday

    Johansen (illness) is in the lineup for Thursday's game versus the Stars, per the NHL media site.

    Johansen was considered questionable as of Wednesday, but he's in the lineup. Expect the center to hold down his usual second-line role with time on the second power-play unit. He has three points over his last three contests.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Questionable against Stars

    Johansen is dealing with an illness and is consequently questionable for Thursday's game in Dallas, per Evan Rawal of Colorado Hockey Now.

    Johansen will at least travel with the team and the Avalanche are hopeful about his chances of playing. The 31-year-old has 11 goals and 15 points in 38 outings this season. If Johansen misses Thursday's contest, then defenseman Kurtis MacDermid might draw into the lineup as a forward.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Adds helper in win

    Johansen notched an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Sharks.

    Johansen has helpers in consecutive games for the first time this season, and he also had a goal in Friday's 2-1 win over the Blues. The 31-year-old center has returned to a second-line role with Ross Colton (leg) out of the lineup, but Johansen is rarely trusted with more than 15 minutes of ice time. He's up 15 points, 55 shots on net, 24 hits, 30 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 37 appearances this season.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Goal, assist in win

    Johansen tallied a goal and an assist in Friday's 2-1 victory over St. Louis.

    Johansen opened the scoring in the first period, backhanding a loose puck past Jordan Binnington before adding an assist on Devon Toews' game-winner in the third. It's Johansen's first multi-point effort since Nov. 27 -- he had just one goal and two points in his subsequent 14 contests. The 31-year-old center now has 12 goals and 16 points through 37 games in his debut season with Colorado.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Racks up 12 PIM in loss

    Johansen delivered two hits and was assessed 12 penalty minutes over 14:33 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Blackhawks.

    Johansen was whistled for a late misconduct penalty for the second consecutive game. Tuesday's came after he received a roughing minor. He's not known for infractions, but 22 of Johansen's 30 PIM have come in the last two contests. It's been a frustrating season for Johansen, who recently snapped a nine-game goalless run and has been moved out of top six at times. Colorado's trade (and clearing of cap space) of Tomas Tatar triggered speculation that the Avalanche are in the market for a second-line center, a move which could permanently move Johansen to a bottom-six role.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Finds twine Sunday

    Johansen scored a goal on two shots and added 10 PIM in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Sharks.

    Johansen entered Sunday with just one assist and a minus-3 rating over his last nine games. This was also the first time he's taken multiple shots on goal in one contest since Nov. 27, when he scored twice on three shots versus the Lightning. The 31-year-old center has struggled to adjust in his first season with the Avalanche, though he has occasionally been an effective scorer. Johansen has 10 goals, two assists, 49 shots and a minus-2 rating over 31 outings.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Returns to second line

    Johansen had one shot on net over 14:00 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-1 win over Buffalo.

    Johansen, whose ice time has fluctuated of late, centered the second line and played well despite not getting on the scoresheet. He rang a shot off the crossbar in the first period and was part of an extended offensive-zone sequence in the third that produced Sam Malinski's goal.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Losing TOI

    Johansen returned to the second line for Monday's game against Calgary but had just 10:38 of ice time in Colorado's comeback win.

    Johansen's recent play has come under scrutiny by the coaching staff. Peter Baugh of The Athletic discussed Johansen's play, including Colorado's expected goal rate (less than 50 percent) when the veteran pivot is on the ice at five-on-five. The center opened Saturday's game on the fourth line but ended up playing effectively, garnering an assist before moving back up to the second line, and receiving his most ice (14:05) since mid-November. It looked like the demotion achieved its intended objective, but Johansen's play slipped Monday. He lost his man for Calgary's second goal and once the Avalanche fell behind by two goals, Johansen was allotted just four shifts and 2:43 of ice time during the third-period comeback. It's unclear where Johansen will start when Colorado returns to action Wednesday against Buffalo.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Faceoff win yields assist

    Johansen notched an assist in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Flyers.

    Johansen won a faceoff back to Josh Manson, who tallied the Avalanche's second goal. The helper was Johansen's first point in six games, a stretch that has seen him drop all the way to the fourth line. His 14:05 of ice time Saturday was his most since Nov. 15, but it's clear he's not trusted with top-six duties at this stage of the campaign. Overall, he's produced nine goals, two assists, 45 shots on net and a minus-3 rating through 27 appearances.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: TOI takes hit

    Johansen had one missed shot and won seven of 10 faceoffs over 11:14 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Anaheim.

    Johansen opened the season on the second line and as a regular on the first power-play unit, but he's experienced a recent reduction of ice time. Ross Colton has moved ahead of Johansen at both even strength and on the power play. Colorado head coach Jared Bednar responded when asked about the forwards' TOI following Tuesday's morning skate. "If Colton is playing well, and doing the job that he's doing, then he's earning more ice," Bednar told Evan Rawal of Colorado Hockey Now. "I don't have a set limit for our guys. I'm kind of watching them on a day-to-day basis, week-to-week basis, month-to-month, and taking all the information I have and then distributing the ice time accordingly." Over the last five games, Johansen has averaged 12:02 of ice time compared to Colton's 15:03.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Scores twice Monday

    Johansen scored a pair of goals in Monday's 4-1 win over the Lightning.

    Johansen has tallied four times over the last six games. The 31-year-old center had the Avalanche's first two goals Monday, which included the game-winner. He's up to nine goals with just one helper through 21 outings, and he's added 42 shots on net, 13 hits and an even plus-minus rating. Johansen remains the listed second-line center, but his ice time has been trending down over the second half of November -- he saw a mere 10:58 in Monday's win.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Wraps in goal

    Johansen scored a goal on four shots and added two PIM in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Flames.

    Johansen created the Avalanche's second -- and game-winning -- goal all by himself. He picked off a pass to the point in his own zone, then worked up the ice and converted on a wraparound. The center has been limited to three goals over 12 contests in November, and he's started to pay for it with a decrease in ice time. He's been under 15:00 in each of the last five games. Johansen has seven goals and only one assist through 20 outings. He has also added 39 shots on net, 13 hits, eight PIM and a minus-1 rating in his first year with the Avalanche.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Johansen: Slips to second power play

    Johansen had one blocked shot and one hit over 11:13 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.

    Johansen's night also included a season-low 13 seconds of TOI on the power play. He'd been a staple on first grouping all season, entering the contest averaging 4:23 on the man-advantage unit. Jonathan Drouin replaced him there Wednesday. The two have alternated at times over the last week, so it might not be the end of Johansen's participation on the top grouping.
