  • 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.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Will not play Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/30/18) Johnson was a late scratch from Friday's game against the Blackhawks, Marc Moser of Altitude Sports 950 reports.

    Johnson's absence went unannounced until just before the game Friday, likely leaving fantasy owners frustrated. The team has yet to release the reason behind his absence, but David Warsofsky will draw into Friday's game without him available.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Eased back in return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/19/18) Johnson played just under 20 minutes in Sunday's victory over Detroit, delivering two hits and finishing with a plus-1 rating.

    The first-overall pick of the 2006 NHL Draft had been sidelined for the previous 13 games due to a shoulder injury he suffered Feb. 18. Don't expect Johnson to log the 25-plus minutes per game that he's averaged this season in the near future, as the team will want to ease him back into game shape.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Ready for Sunday's contest

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/18/18) Johnson (shoulder) will be activated from injured reserve and slot into Sunday's lineup against the Red Wings.

    Johnson has missed 13 games with this shoulder issue, and the Avalanche should be excited for the former first-overall pick to bolster its blue line. The 29-year-old blueliner has seven goals and 22 points through 56 games, so he isn't an overly exciting fantasy option. However, he's averaged a whopping 25:43 per contest with consistent power-play minutes, and his physical play -- 103 hits and 117 blocked shots -- could add to his potential.
