2022 Fantasy Outlook
Johnson started last season at the University of Michigan and finished the year with Columbus. In between, he played for the Canadian Olympic team. He has since played for Canada at the World Championship and the delayed and since completed 2022 World Juniors. Johnson, the fifth-overall pick in 2021, is one of the most gifted offensive prospects in the NHL. He's an excellent puck handler and dynamic in open space. It would be great to see the Blue Jackets insert him on their top line alongside Johnny Gaudreau and Patrik Laine in 2022-23. While that seems unlikely to happen, Columbus is going to have to figure out a way to ensure Johnson gets significant ice time all season long. Read Past Outlooks

December 4, 2022
Johnson scored a goal in Columbus' 4-2 loss to Detroit on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Johnson has six goals and 13 points in 20 games this season. He's been held off the scoresheet only once in his last four contests. Johnson hasn't had a scoring drought of more than two games so far in 2022-23 despite not playing a substantial role; he came into Sunday's contest averaging just 12:35 of ice time. The 20-year-old logged a season-low 8:14 in Friday's 4-1 victory over Winnipeg, but that jumped to 15:18 on Sunday.
