2014-15 Fantasy Hockey Outlook

Johnson is an offensive dynamo in a very tiny package. This 5-foot-9 sparkplug earned a Calder nomination on the back of a 24-goal, 50-point season and looked every part a young Martin St. Louis. Unfortunately, he's unlikely to repeat his successes this season. Not only is a...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Is Johnson the next Marty St. Louis? The Bolts sure hope so. Johnson is vertically challenged, but has elite sniping ability. He ran away with the AHL goal title this past season with 37 in just 62 games and could have come close to 45 (and won the overall scoring title) had he not played 14 games with the Bolts. He can play center and left wing, and it's the latter where he'll get his best chance at glory with the Bolts. He doesn't have Jonathan Drouin-like talent, but he knows how to play in all three zones. And his exploits last season made rookie hot shot, Cory Conacher, expendable. He and Alex Killorn will likely battle for the third-line left wing job in Tampa and that's a plum spot -- second-line winger, Ryan Malone, will be on the IR for at least 20 or 25 games, so opportunity will definitely knock. Watch him in camp -- he might be worth a last-round pick.

2011-12

We like Johnson, don't get us wrong. But his hype machine is in overdrive right now and it's time to take a deep breath. His gifts are tremendous. He's lightning quick, great on the draw and in his own zone, abrasive, aggressive and offensively gifted. Now for the reality check. He's a 5-9 sparkplug who went undrafted before an explosive 53-goal, 115-point effort as an overager last season. Hockey pundits have a tendency to undervalue prolific overagers but maybe this kid is different. His pedigree does include two world junior tourneys, after all, where he was excellent as a checking line blanket. Keep an eye on him and hope that he bucks the trend.
