2021 Fantasy Outlook
Johnsson's first season with the Devils didn't go very well -- he logged 11 points in 50 games, shooting 7.7 percent while seeing his ice time tumble to 13:56 per game. After earning a middle-six role with the Maple Leafs, it was a surprise to see the Swede often play no higher than the third line with New Jersey in 2020-21. The good news for Johnsson is that he's likely to rebound to shooting around 10 percent, and he should still see power-play time. A strong start to the season could get him back on a scoring line alongside either Jack Hughes or Nico Hischier, but the 26-year-old Johnsson probably can't afford a slow start. He's worth a look as a depth forward in the late rounds of fantasy drafts assuming he gets back to his established scoring pace. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $13.6 million contract extension with the Maple Leafs in June of 2019. Traded to the Devils in October of 2020.
Back at practice
LWNew Jersey Devils
January 11, 2022
Johnsson returned to practice Tuesday after exiting the league's COVID-19 protocols, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Johnsson hasn't scored a goal in 15 straight outings despite putting 30 shots on net over that stretch. With the Devils also getting back Pavel Zacha and Yegor Sharangovich, the 27-year-old Johnsson may struggle to crack the top six.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Johnsson missed large chunks of the 2019-20 campaign with two separate leg injuries, but he was decent when healthy, notching eight goals, 13 assists and 78 shots on goal while averaging 15:45 of ice time in 43 games with the Maple Leafs. Toronto traded the 26-year-old Swede to New Jersey in order to open up some cap space in October, and he's poised to jump into a top-six role as well as a spot on the second power-play unit with the Devils in 2020-21. Johnsson will have the potential to play at a 15-plus goal, 40-plus point pace with New Jersey this season, but that won't make him anything more than a fringe bench option at best in most fantasy formats.
Johnsson is a player on the rise. He delivered a solid 20-goal, 43-point rookie campaign last year, but his last 28 regular-season games were particularly outstanding -- he delivered at a 30-goal, 60-point pace over that span. That performance earned Johnsson a four-year contract with a team-friendly $3.4 million cap hit. He'll skate on a scoring line beside either Auston Matthews or John Tavares in 2019-20, and should get time on the top power-play unit with Toronto's best. That 60-point plateau should come easy this season. Johnsson will be hard to pass on draft day.
Once upon a time, there was this asthmatic Swedish kid who struggled in junior. He apparently had no clue he had the condition. Neither did the Leafs when they rolled the dice on him with the 10th-to-last pick (202nd) in the 2013 draft. A diagnosis, a few puffers and his game took off. Now at 23, Johnsson delivered a brilliant regular AHL season that culminated in 24 points in a 16-game playoff run to the Calder Cup and a playoff MVP award. He has elite hands, speed and hockey IQ, not to mention a work ethic that's off the charts -- he's Swedish, after all. Johnsson will likely start the season on the third line (fourth line at worst), but his future is in the top six. Dynasty owners should pay very serious heed.
