Johansson will undergo surgery on his broken left arm Friday, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
It's safe to assume Johansson will miss the rest of the postseason, but the Wild have yet to announce whether they believe the 30-year-old winger is in danger of missing time at the start of the 2021-22. campaign. Johansson will finish the season having picked up 14 points through 36 contests.
Johansson sustained a broken arm in Game 3 against Vegas on Thursday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
While coach Dean Evason didn't provide anything in the way of a timeline for Johansson, he should probably be expected to miss a minimum of 6-8 weeks depending on the severity. As such, the winger would need the Wild to make a very deep run into the postseason to have any chance of playing again. Without Johansson in the lineup, Zach Parise could slot into a bottom-six role while Joel Eriksson Ek replaces him with the No. 2 power play.
Head coach Dean Evason said "it does not look good" regarding Johansson's (undisclosed) injury suffered in Thursday's Game 3 versus the Golden Knights, Kevin Falness of the Wild Radio Network reports.
Uh-oh -- Johansson left after he crashed into the post during the first period of Thursday's game and he was unable to return. Evason was careful to point out that he couldn't make an official comment on the Swede's status, but his "not good" description suggests a lengthy absence could be ahead. Johansson is likely going to miss at least Saturday's Game 4, though a clearer timeline should emerge once the forward has been fully evaluated. Zach Parise will likely enter the lineup in place of Johansson.
Johansson (undisclosed) left Thursday's Game 3 versus the Golden Knights in the first period, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Johansson collided with the post on a rush to the net and doubled over in pain on his way to the locker room. The Swede did not join the Wild on the bench to start the second period. If he's unable to return during Thursday's contest, the Wild will be forced to finish the game with 11 forwards. More information on Johansson's injury should be available prior to Saturday's Game 4.
Johansson (upper body) is on the ice for warmups and is expected to suit up in Wednesday's game against Vegas, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
The 30-year-old missed the past two games with the upper-body issue, but as evidenced by this news, the injury wasn't long term. Johansson will return for Thursday's game on the third line, as he's produced 14 points in 31 games this season. Johansson will replace Kevin Fiala (undisclosed) in the lineup for the contest.
Johansson (upper body) will remain out Monday against the Golden Knights, Sarah McLellan of Star Tribune Sports reports.
Coach Dean Evason described Johansson as "fine" but wants the veteran forward to get some skating under his belt before he returns from the injury. Johansson could be back as soon as Wednesday's rematch against Vegas.
Johansson (upper body) won't play Saturday versus the Blues, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.
Johansson was a late scratch Saturday. In his place, Nick Bjugstad should return to the lineup in a third-line role. Johansson's first chance to return is Monday versus the Golden Knights.
Johansson scored a power-play goal on three shots and added two hits in Monday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes.
Johansson struck at 9:38 of the second period, and his tally stood as the game-winner. He's posted a goal and four helpers over his last five games. The 30-year-old seems more comfortable playing on the wing, even if he sees less ice time in such a role. For the season, the Swede is up to 13 points (six on the power play), 32 shots on net and a minus-5 rating through 26 appearances.
Johansson produced a power-play assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.
Johansson set up Mats Zuccarello's tally at 14:35 of the first period to tie the game at 1-1. The 30-year-old Johansson has four assists in his last four outings. For the year, the Swede is up to 12 points, 29 shots on net and a minus-6 rating through 25 appearances. A middle-six role and a lack of steady offense makes Johansson a low-end fantasy option.
Johansson registered a pair of assists and one shot in Wednesday's 5-2 win over Arizona.
Johansson set up a pair of Mats Zuccarello goals on the power play, including a perfect 2-on-1 feed to open the scoring late in the first period. Johansson has produced five points in his last five games, but he hasn't been fantasy viable since departing Washington following the 2016-17 campaign.
Johansson recorded a power-play assist in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blues.
Johansson had the secondary assist on Matt Dumba's tally late in the second period. The 30-year-old Johansson has produced six points in 11 games since returning from an upper-body injury. He saw a top-line assignment Saturday since Kevin Fiala (upper body) couldn't play. Johansson is at nine points, 28 shots on goal and a minus-4 rating in 22 appearances -- he's likely better suited for a middle-six role.
Johansson scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Monday's 5-4 loss to Colorado. He finished with three shots.
Johansson drew the secondary assist on Ryan Hartman's first-period goal that opened the scoring, then he struck with the man advantage midway through the third, banking a shot off a Colorado defenseman from below the goal line.

Johansson opened the scoring at 12:41 of the first period, and he added a secondary helper on Kevin Fiala's third-period equalizer. It's been a rough year for Johansson, who has been limited to six points in 15 appearances after missing a month to an upper-body injury. The Swede doesn't contribute much outside of scoring, but he's shown decent chemistry on a line with Fiala and Ryan Hartman in recent games.
Johansson scored a goal on his only shot in Thursday's 2-0 win over St. Louis.
Johansson received a perfect cross-ice feed from Kevin Fiala and buried it to break a scoreless deadlock 5:46 into the second period. It was Johansson's first point in three contests since returning from an upper-body injury that kept him out of the lineup for 16 games. The 30-year-old center, in his first season with the Wild, has three goals and an assist through 14 games in 2020-21.
Johansson (upper body) had one shot and one hit in Monday's 2-1 win over the Ducks.
Johansson had missed 16 consecutive games and was entrusted with just under 14 minutes of ice time in his return. The veteran center didn't register a point Monday but did see some time on the penalty kill. Johansson, in his first season with the Wild, has two goals and an assist through 12 games. He was a 30-point scorer (60 games) for Buffalo in 2019-20.
Johansson (upper body) will be activated from injured reserve for Monday's game versus the Ducks, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Johansson will return to the lineup after missing the last 16 games. The 30-year-old skated with Joel Eriksson Ek and Jordan Greenway during Sunday's morning skate, and he's expected to stay in that role Monday. The Swedish winger has put up two goals and an assist through 11 appearances this year.
Johansson (upper body) practiced fully Sunday and could play in Monday's game versus the Ducks, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Johansson (upper body) continues to skate, but he won't be available for Tuesday night's game against Arizona, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.
Johansson will miss a 14th consecutive contest Tuesday, and the Wild have yet to make a decision on whether he'll make the trip to Colorado for Minnesota's upcoming two-game set versus the Avalanche. The veteran forward will need to be activated off injured reserve before rejoining the lineup, so look for that announcement to precede his return to action.
Johansson (upper body) won't be activated from injured reserve for Sunday's game versus the Coyotes, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.
Johansson has been skating for nearly a week, but the Wild aren't going to rush him back. Nevertheless, there's a good chance that he returns for Tuesday's matchup against the Coyotes if he can avoid a setback. The Swedish winger averaged 15:44 of ice time before this injury, and he provided two goals and an assist across 11 contests.
Johansson (upper body) skated on his own Monday, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.
Johansson is closing in on a return, but he'll miss a 10th straight game when he sits out Monday's matchup versus the Golden Knights. The 30-year-old's next step will be to join the team for practice. Once he gains clearance, Johansson likely will draw into the bottom six.
