  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Fills stats sheet

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/7/18) Johnson recorded three assists, a plus-3 rating and seven shots on goal in a 5-2 victory over the Flyers on Saturday.

    It took Johnson until Nov. 16 to register his first multi-point night, and he didn't have a single contest with three points last season. Clearly, Saturday was a pretty big performance for the 30-year-old. Still, owners should keep it in perspective. He hasn't surpassed 16 assists in one season since 2014-15, so unless he has a couple more multi-assist nights, that's Johnson's ceiling in 2018-19.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Will play Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/17/18) Johnson (knee) will suit up for Tuesday's preseason clash with Vegas, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

    Johnson has reached the 70-game threshold just once in the past three seasons due to various injuries, so hopefully this latest knee issue is behind him. If the blueliner can stay healthy, he is capable of challenging for the 40-point mark.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Back on ice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/1/18) Johnson (knee) has been on the ice for informal practices ahead of training camp, The Hockey Writers reports.

    A knee injury prevented Johnson from appearing in the final 11 games of Colorado's 2017-18 campaign, including the entire first-round playoff series against the Predators. The veteran is said to be "working on his legs and knees" in the informal sessions, and he'll presumably intensify his training regimen as the new season approaches. Johnson produced nine goals and 16 assists over 62 games for an Avalanche team that made tremendous strides last year, so it's safe to consider that his floor if the Minnesota native is able to stay healthy for close to a full season.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Misses playoff action with injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/4/18) Johnson (knee) didn't recover in time to help the Avalanche in their first-round playoff series against the Predators.

    Back on March 31, when the Avalanche disclosed that Johnson would miss six weeks of action with a fractured patella, there was hope that Johnson would be able to make a full recovery in time to help out in the postseason. However, the defenseman's rehab carried over to the offseason, and now his focus will be getting ready for training camp. The 30-year-old is under contract with Colorado through the 2022-23 season, and he's making $6 million annually with modified no-trade and no-move clauses over the life of the deal. It's clear that he's appreciated by the Avalanche, though Johnson's output of 25 points (three on the power play) through 62 games of the 2017-18 season certainly doesn't scream "elite."

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Out six weeks with fractured kneecap

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/31/18) Johnson is dealing with a fractured patella that will sideline him for six weeks.

    In layman's terms, Johnson has sustained a serious injury to his kneecap. The big concern for the defenseman is that he'll have a lot of trouble straightening the knee, and we suspect Johnson may need surgery if the bones in his kneecap are displaced. With any luck, the 30-year-old will make a full recovery and return for the playoffs, but the Avalanche still have work to do in order to extend their season. He finishes with 25 points (nine goals, 16 assists) over 62 regular-season contests.
