  • Islanders' Ross Johnston: Snags four-year deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/9/18) Johnston penned a four-year contract with the Islanders on Monday.

    Johnston split time between the NHL and AHL last season, but won't have to worry about that this time around as his new deal is a one-way agreement. In his 24 appearances for the Isles, the winger tallied six points, 62 PIM and 19 shots, while averaging just 9:20 of ice time.

    Islanders' Ross Johnston: Granted qualifying offer

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/25/18) Johnston was extended a qualifying offer by the Islanders on Monday, Newsday reports.

    Johnston is a physical presence on the ice and will make sure teams don't take any liberties with players like Matthew Barzal and John Tavares (should he re-sign). The qualifying offer was for $735,000, and it should keep Johnston with the Islanders organization next season.

    Islanders' Ross Johnston: More than just a fighter

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/15/18) Johnston finished the 2017-18 season with three goals, three assists, and 62 penalty minutes in 24 games.

    Johnston provided the Islanders with a physical presence on the ice, something they have been lacking since letting Matt Martin leave via free agency a couple of seasons ago. Johnston will likely compete for a spot on the fourth-line with the Islanders in training camp, but will likely find himself as an enforcer who is only used when the Isles are facing a physical opponent and not as an every game player.

    Islanders' Ross Johnston: Plays Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/24/18) Johnston drew back into the lineup Saturday versus the Blackhawks, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Johnston provides the Islanders with an enforcer type whenever he is in the lineup. Coach Doug Weight places him in the lineup versus physical teams but removes him against more skilled opponents. Johnston has proven that he can use more than just his fists when on the ice, however, as he does have three goals and three assists in 17 games for the Isles. Still, he will likely be a coach's decision most games.

    Islanders' Ross Johnston: Out of lineup Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/18) Johnston will be a healthy scratch Thursday versus the Lightning, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Johnston provides the Islanders with a physical presence, but coach Doug Weight must feel that skill will be needed more than an ability to drop the glove in order to defeat Tampa Bay. The next chance for Johnston to play will be Saturday versus the Blackhawks.
