RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Johansson played in 34 of 48 games last season, despite being hobbled throughout the year by series of injuries. Still, he managed to rack up 22 points on 16 assists and six goals in those 34 games. Once healthy, Johansson closed out the regular season strong with three assists and a goal in the Cap's last six games. Johansson has real sleeper potential and could be a strong late-round pick up this season. At press time Johansson (a restricted free agent) remains unsigned. Monitor his contract situation closely.

2012-13

Still a developing talent, Johansson is a playmaker as evidenced by the fact that 32 of his 46 points came via assists. Johansson averaged just shy of 17 minutes a game last year, good for third among Caps centers. The potential is there but he still remains behind Backstrom in the depth chart so his value is limited to start the season in standard leagues, but he's definitely worth remembering in keeper leagues. There is a chance for Johansson to start at wing on the second line so keep an eye on the Caps' roster as the season progresses; Johansson may just be a steal off the waiver wire or a valuable late-round pick.

2011-12

Johansson came into camp last season with the hopes of making the roster, and did just that, while beating out some guys that were expected to make the roster. He had an up and down first season, but showed flashes of what made him an opening day starter. With free agent signings, it will be tough for him to crack the top six, so expect him to center the third line, but he may move up depending on his play.

2010-11

Johansson can play both wing and center after a switch made while playing with Farjestads, a Swedish professional team, where he spent last season. He has impressed the Capitals enough to have them excited about his future. He is a solid two-way forward with a strong, accurate shot, but has a few concerns. He is a bit undersized and has had concussions in the past. He will compete for a spot on the roster at camp and has a decent shot to start the year in Washington

2009-10

Johansson, the Capitals first-round selection in 2009 is a steady and unspectacular, two-way forward who is good at just about everything. His assets include his vision and intelligence, and scouts like how he runs the power play from the half boards. He makes very good decisions and will be a sturdy NHLer.
