Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Notches 30th point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson dished out an assist in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Bruins.

Johnson's in danger of finishing with a career low in points, as he just notched his 30th point after 61 games. He's getting fewer opportunities -- his average of 14:33 per game is the lowest since his rookie year -- on the third line, and it's been an especially tough stretch with just three points over the past 12 contests.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: First point in five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (undisclosed) picked up an assist in 11:59 of ice time in a 5-3 win over the Flyers on Saturday.

Johnson missed Friday's practice, but he didn't miss any game time. The helper was his first point in five games and just his 28th in 55 games. At this point, Johnson is on pace for 37 points. That would be his lowest output since his 14-game debut in 2012-13. He still has name recognition, but his fantasy value isn't nearly as good as people think.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Good to go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (undisclosed) will play in Saturday's game versus the Flyers, Erik Erlendsson of reports.

Johnson was a game-time call after missing Friday's practice, but he'll avoid missing his first game since December. The 31-year-old will flank Cedric Paquette on the third line and look to build on the 27 points (13 goals, 14 assists) he's accrued through 53 games.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Game-time decision Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (undisclosed) didn't take part in practice Friday and is considered a game-time call for Saturday's tilt versus the Flyers, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Johnson is one of four Lightning players to be deemed a game-time call for the contest, though Joe Smith of The Athletic notes that it appears a couple of them may be in line to draw in. Look for confirmation of the team's lineup to surface on game day.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Provides helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson posted an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 4-3 win over the Ducks.

Johnson reached the 25-point mark with his helper Friday. He's at 12 goals, 13 assists, 84 shots and 50 hits in 46 games this year. The 29-year-old figures to remain on a highly productive line with Anthony Cirelli and Ondrej Palat for the foreseeable future.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Sparks comeback with goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson potted a goal on two shots in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

Johnson finished off a give-and-go with Ondrej Palat at 5:48 of the second period to put the Lightning on the board. The 29-year-old now has 12 goals and 24 points in 45 contests this season. He's added 82 shots on net, 50 hits and a plus-5 rating.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Sends helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson picked up an assist and went plus-3 in Friday's 7-1 win over the Jets.

Johnson had the secondary helper on the first of Anthony Cirelli's three goals in the game. Their line with Ondrej Palat was arguably the most effective against the Jets. Johnson is at 23 points (11 goals, 12 assists), 78 shots on goal, 48 hits and a plus-4 rating in 43 appearances this season, mostly in a middle-six role.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Opens scoring in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson netted a goal on two shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Devils.

Johnson tallied 37 seconds into the second period, but the Devils scored the last three goals of the game. The 29-year-old forward has four goals and two helpers in his last eight appearances. Through 40 games this season, he's up to 11 goals, 21 points and 75 shots. His tally Sunday was the 150th of his career.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Three points in high-scoring affair
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson scored a goal and added a pair of assists, one on the power play, in a 6-4 win over the Sabres on Tuesday.

The three-point effort pushed Johnson's season point total to 18, but he remains without a power-play goal this season. He does have five power-play helpers, though. The 29-year-old has produced 0.55 points per game in 2019-20 and is more than capable of turning in nights like this but can also go cold for long stretches.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Good to go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (lower body) is available for Saturday's game against the Canadiens.

Johnson has sat out five of the last eight games with this injury, but he'll be back in the mix Saturday. The 30-year-old is expected to center the fourth line, but he should contribute on the power play as well. Through 30 games this season, Johnson has accrued seven goals and eight assists.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Sitting out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (lower body) won't play in Monday's game against the Panthers.

Johnson didn't practice Monday, as he aggravated a lower-body injury that already held him out of four games in December, according to Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site. The Lightning don't play again until Saturday versus the Canadiens, so coach Jon Cooper hopes that will be enough time for Johnson to get healthy. Mathieu Joseph will enter the lineup in Johnson's place.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Given green light Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (lower body) will suit up versus the Senators on Tuesday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Where Johnson slots into the lineup will depend on the health of Nikita Kucherov (lower body). If Kucherov is unable to play, Johnson could be set to jump up to the top line. Either way, the Spokane native should fill a top-six role and will look to pick up where he left off prior to getting hurt (four points in four games).

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: May play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jon Cooper said Johnson (lower body) could play in Tuesday's game against the Senators, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Johnson was just starting to heat up, recording three goals and an assist over the four games preceding his injury. If he's able to play Tuesday, the 30-year-old could be in line for a top-six role since Nikita Kucherov's (lower body) status is uncertain.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Ruled out next two contests
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (lower body) will miss the Lightning's next two games versus Boston and Washington on Thursday and Saturday, respectively, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Johnson's upper-body issue has already cost him a pair of outings and he's set to be sidelined for two more. Barring any setbacks, the natural center should be an option to suit up in Tuesday's clash with Ottawa and would likely resume a spot in the top six and on the power play. In those roles, the Spokane native is capable of providing top-end fantasy value.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Still nursing injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Jon Cooper said Monday that Johnson (lower body) won't play in Tuesday's road game against Florida.

Johnson didn't suit up in Monday's 5-1 loss to the Islanders and is set to miss more time. It's still unclear what sort of injury the center is dealing with, as Cooper failed to provide further update on the issue. Johnson's next chance to suit up would be Thursday against Boston, but as long as he's out, Cory Conacher and Mitchell Stephens are likely to continue to receive playing time.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Set to miss time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is dealing with a lower-body injury that will keep him out of the lineup for the "next couple of games" according to coach Jon Cooper, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

With a back-to-back Monday and Tuesday against, the Islanders and Panthers, respectively, fantasy owners can all but guarantee Johnson won't play in the next two games and possibly beyond. Depending on the center's diagnosis, he could also find himself on injured reserve. Cory Conacher and Mitchell Stephens were called up in Johnson's stead and could both see time in the lineup.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Four points in last four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson scored twice in 10:09 of ice time Saturday in a 7-1 win over San Jose.

His ice time had been hovering in the 14-15 minute range over the last while, so this was a big drop. Still, Johnson is quietly putting up points -- he has three goals and one assist in his last four games. Maybe his game is on the rise again.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Opportunity no longer knocking
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson has a single assist in his last nine games.

Johnson has slipped down the depth chart -- his role on the second line has been taken by Anthony Cirelli. And he's currently in the bottom six. Johnson's 10 points in 21 games don't look horrible on the surface until you see that six points were scored in his first 10 games. His game, like those of a lot of smallish players, is built around opportunity, and he just doesn't have much right now. Keep Johnson's name in mind if the lines get juggled, but for now, his fantasy value is slim.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Scores OT winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson finished Wednesday's 7-6 overtime win over New Jersey with three points.

In addition to scoring the OT winner, Johnson recorded a pair of assists Wednesday evening, one of which came on Alex Killorn's power-play goal at the 17:15 mark of the opening period. It was his first multi-point performance of the season and gives Johnson nine points in 12 games.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Enjoying solid start to season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson has picked up two goals and five points through the first nine games of the campaign.

Johnson has been good for 45-50 points in each of the past three campaigns, and that's the clip the 30-year-old American is scoring at early on in 2019-20. The 5-foot-8 forward is currently skating on the Lightning's first line and top power-play unit, so he'll be in a prime position to continue his steady start to the season Saturday against the Predators.
