Top Marcus Johansson News

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Scores in Saturday's loss

    Johansson scored a goal in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Johansson has a pair of goals and two assists over his last six outings. The winger tallied midway through the third period of this lopsided loss. He's up to 12 goals, 24 points, 78 shots on net and a plus-4 rating through 49 outings this season. He's mainly played in a middle-six role, though he's been listed on the fourth line amid the Capitals' recent line shuffling.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Notches assist in overtime win

    Johansson produced an assist in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders.

    Johansson helped out on a Garnet Hathaway tally in the second period. With a goal and an assist over his last three games, Johansson continues to make occasional contributions on offense. With the Capitals' forward group significantly healthier, he's been pushed down the lineup a bit. He's at 22 points, 69 shots on net and a plus-3 rating through 46 contests.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Pots goal Wednesday

    Johansson recorded a goal during Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Flyers.

    Johansson was the beneficiary of an errant clear by Flyers defenseman Ivan Provorov in the third period of Wednesday's loss. The 32-year-old has had a bounce-back season with 11 goals and 21 points in 44 games, but the return of Nicklas Backstrom and Tom Wilson has pushed him out of the top six and off the top power-play unit so Johansson may have trouble producing the kind of consistent offense fantasy managers crave.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Three points in rout

    Johansson had a goal and two assists in a 9-2 rout of the Canadiens on Saturday.

    Both assists came with the man advantage; the goal was at even strength. Johansson has six points (three goals, three assists) in his last six games. Half of those have come with the man advantage. And he has two game-winning goals in that span. Johansson is hit-and-miss offensively most weeks, but this is a nice fantasy stretch.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Pots game-winner

    Johansson tallied the game-winning goal and added two shots during Thursday's 3-2 overtime win against the Senators.

    Johansson has been shoring up Washington's offense while the team continues to deal with myriad injury woes, posting four goals and eight points over his last 15 games. The 32-year-old is worth a look in most formats as long as he continues to garner top-six minutes and opportunities with Alex Ovechkin on the top power-play unit.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Converts shorthanded penalty shot

    Johansson scored a shorthanded goal on a penalty shot and went plus-2 in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Jets.

    Johansson was slashed on a shorthanded rush from the blue line, earning the penalty shot, which he converted for his seventh goal of the season. This was the 32-year-old forward's first shorthanded point since the 2012-13 campaign. He's up to seven goals, seven assists, 51 shots on net and a minus-2 rating through 30 contests overall, with eight of his 14 points coming on the power play.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Assist streak at three games

    Johansson provided a power-play assist in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Kraken.

    Johansson set up Conor Sheary's first-period mark. The assist was Johansson's third in as many games. The veteran forward is up to five goals, seven helpers, seven power-play points, 40 shots on net and a minus-4 rating through 25 outings, mainly in a middle-six role.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Contributes helper in win

    Johansson posted an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.

    Johansson set up an Anthony Mantha goal in the first period. The helper was Johansson's second in as many games, and it was his first even-strength point since Nov. 13. The 32-year-old winger has five goals, six assists, 39 shots on net and a minus-3 rating in 24 outings while earning six of his 11 points on the power play. He'll likely continue to see middle-six minutes while the Capitals navigate a brutal stretch of injuries.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Nets game-tying tally

    Johansson scored a first-period, power-play goal during Wednesday's 3-2 overtime victory over the visiting Flyers.

    Johansson, who had a goal overturned following a coach's challenge, came back 23 seconds later to connect on a deflection off a shot by Alex Ovechkin. The 32-year-old forward's tally tied the score at 1-1 at 11:05 of the first period. It was a rare first-period goal for the Capitals, who have been outscored 20-8 during the opening stanza this season. Johansson took advantage of the Flyers' dismal special teams play, which entered Wednesday with just eight penalty kills in their previous 16 attempts.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Deposits lone goal in loss

    Johansson scored a goal and went minus-2 in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Penguins.

    Johansson broke up Casey DeSmith's shutout bid in the third period. With the Capitals navigating a handful of injuries to forwards, Johansson has had to play a larger role than initially expected early in the year. The 32-year-old forward hasn't found much success lately, with a goal and an assist in five games in November. He has seven points, 27 shots on net and a plus-1 rating through 15 contests overall.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Points in three of last four games

    Johansson picked up an assist Thursday in a 5-2 loss to the Senators.

    He had a great entry into the Sens' zone and then feathered the puck to T.J. Oshie for the score in the first period. Johansson has points in three of his past four games and four points (one goal, three assists) in five games overall while also seeing plenty of power play time on the top unit.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Lights lamp Thursday

    Johansson tallied a goal on his only shot during Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Johansson has a goal and six shots in Washington's first two games. The 32-year-old will need to find the scoresheet with some regularity to fend off the likes of Alexei Protas, Connor McMichael and Joe Snively for ice time.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Staying in Washington

    Johansson signed a one-year, $1.1 million contract with the Capitals on Wednesday.

    Johansson combined for 29 points in 69 games between the Kraken and the Capitals last year. He rejoined the Capitals for a second stint in DC at the trade deadline, and they apparently saw enough to keep him around for another season. Expect the 31-year-old to play a middle-six role in 2022-23.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Opportunistic goal wins game

    Johansson had a goal and an assist in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Panthers in Game 3.

    His goal stood as the winner. Anthony Mantha's shot midway through the second was blocked by a Florida defender in front of the net, but Johansson was Johnny-on-the-spot and backhanded the loose puck over Sergei Bobrovsky to push the score to 2-1. The points are Johansson's first this postseason.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Points in three straight outings

    Johansson logged an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

    Johansson helped out on the first of Alex Ovechkin's two goals in the game. It took a while after he rejoined the Capitals at the trade deadline, but Johansson has looked more consistent lately with a goal and two helpers in his last three games. The Swede has 27 points, 101 shots on net and a minus-27 rating in 64 outings between the Capitals and the Kraken this season.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Pots goal Saturday

    Johansson registered a goal and added three shots during Saturday's 6-3 win over the Penguins.

    The goal is Johansson's first since Feb. 17 when he was still a member of the Kraken, and it's his first point in seven games since rejoining the Capitals at the trade deadline. The 31-year-old got a chance to skate on the top line upon his return to DC but now occupies a spot on the third line and could have trouble generating offense (and consistent fantasy value) as long as he's relegated to more of a depth role.

  • Capitals' Marcus Johansson: Reunited with former club

    Johansson was traded to the Capitals from the Kraken on Monday, with Daniel Sprong, a 2022 fourth-round pick and 2023 sixth-round pick headed the other way, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

    Johansson is back with Washington after being traded to the Devils back in July of 2017. During his seven-year stint with the Caps, the winger recorded 102 goals, 188 assists and 738 shots in 501 contests. With Washington, Johansson could be in line to step into a second-line role alongside Nicklas Backstrom, at least until T.J. Oshie (lower body) is cleared to return.

  • Kraken's Marcus Johansson: Gets 400th career point

    Johansson picked up two assists in regulation and scored the deciding goal in the seventh shootout round in a 4-3 victory over Montreal on Saturday.

    Johansson's first assist, which came on Ryan Donato's goal, was his 400th NHL point. His 401 points (141 goals, 260 assists) have come in 733 games for six teams -- Caps, Devils, Bruins, Sabres, Wild and Kraken. Johannson's shootout winner was a nice backhand over Sam Montembeault's glove for the only snipe on the tiebreaker.

  • Kraken's Marcus Johansson: Slides assist in loss

    Johansson logged an assist and fired two shots on goal in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Johansson has faded on offense a bit lately -- he's picked up four assists and 16 shots during a nine-game goal drought. The 31-year-old gas 21 points, 77 shots on net and a minus-21 rating through 47 outings. He'll continue to see power-play time, which makes him a solid scoring-only option in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Kraken's Marcus Johansson: Posts helper Wednesday

    Johansson logged an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Predators.

    Johansson set up the Kraken's first goal scored by Alexander Wennberg in the second period. The 31-year-old Johansson has earned a goal and four assists in his last eight games. For the season, the Swede's at 20 points, 72 shots on net and a minus-22 rating in 44 contests. He played on the third line Wednesday, but the Kraken have rarely used the same forward trios for more than a handful of games at a time, so he could be back in the top six soon.
