The Capitals signed Marcus Johansson to a three-year deal worth $13.75 ($4.58M AAV).
Johansson, 25, has settled in nicely with the Capitals since they drafted him 24th overall in 2009. He had 46 points (17G / 29A) in 74 games last year, continuing his consistent mid-40’s point production. At just 25, there is room for him to grow into a mid-50’s player, especially in an explosive Capitals’ offence. Draft him as the player he has been with room for upside.
Johansson (illness) missed the morning skate, but is probable for Monday's game.
Johansson did not participate in the Capitals’ morning skate because of an illness, but head coach Barry Trotz expects Joahnsson to play on Monday. Monitor Johansson’s status during the pregame warmups, but expect Stanislav Galiev to play if Johansson can’t.
Johansson (upper-body) is doubtful for Tuesday's game.
Johansson suffered an upper-body injury in last Wednesday’s loss to the Flyers. He missed Mnoday’s practice and is not expected to be in the lineup on Tuesday. With Johansson listed as doubtful, the Capitals have recalled Zach Sill from Hershey (AHL).
Johansson has served his two-game suspension--set to return on Thursday.
Johansson sat out the Capitals weekend back-to-back because of a suspension, but he is set to return on Thursday. Johansson, who had 26 points (10G / 16A) in 39 games this season, is expected to skate on the third line between Jason Chimera and Tom Wilson.
Johansson (undisclosed) will play Tuesday vs. the Red Wings.
Johansson was a late scratch on Saturday, but was on the ice for Tuesday’s morning skate and will play against the Red Wings. Johansson’s return means that Stanislav Galiev will be a healthy scratch and Andre Burakovsky will move to the fourth line. Johansson has 13 points (5G / 8A) in 24 games this season.
Johansson (undisclosed) did not practice on Monday; listed as day-to-day.
Johansson was a late scratch from Saturday’s game and missed today’s practice as well. He is listed as day-to-day, so he could be back on the ice tomorrow, but as of now, his status for Tuesday’s game vs. Detroit is in doubt.
Johansson (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Saturday.
Johansson left the team’s afternoon practice in Winnipeg early, and Coach Barry Trotz said he would be a game-time decision for Saturday’s contest against the Jets. Stanislav Galiev skated in Johansson’s place on the second line, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that’s how Washington’s lineup will look if Johansson misses the game.
Johansson (undisclosed) is expected to play in Game 4.
Johansson was listed as questionable for Game 4, after suffering an undisclosed injury in Monday’s practice. Johansson was in the morning skate and said that he will play tonight. Johansson has one goal and six shots on goal in the first three games of the series.
