Chad Johnson

Chad Johnson

Free Agent / Not Drafted

Johnson could have had the debut he wanted in a strong effort, but it was not meant to be, and instead of notching at least a point on the road and giving his team a chance to steal another, he let a pretty soft shorthanded effort squeeze through him resulting in a regulation loss.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson will need to get his confidence back or built up in a new environment, but this was not an ideal start.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson will straight up fill-in for Miller, but John Gibson might get a slight bump in his number of starts as opposed to as he had Miller backing him up.

Chad Johnson takes the loss

Mon, Oct 15th 9:17am EDT
By Douglas Roth

Chad Johnson allowed three goals in the Blues 3-2 loss to the Ducks on Sunday. He saved 28-31 shots against while taking the loss.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson had a mediocre outing to start his Blues career. He figures to see around 20 starts this season and will not be rosterable baring an injury or as a streaming goalie add.

Chad Johnson started in net for Buffalo on Sunday and stopped 25 of the 26 shots he faced.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson will get spot starts here and there but is not worth a roster spot at this time.

Johnson stopped 27-of-31 shots during Calgary's 5-2 loss to Boston. The loss ended the Flames 10-game winning streak.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson made his first start since February 24th and appeared rusty against the Bruins. In his last five starts he has gone 2-3 with 17 goals allowed in that span.


Category: , Game Recaps

Johnson stopped 36-of-38 shots in the Flames 4-2 win versus Florida.

Fantasy Impact: He is now 2-2 in his last four starts with nine goals allowed in the two losses and just four goals allowed in the two wins. Right now Calgary is on fire winning three straight games and is 7-2-1 in their last ten.

Chad Johnson made 25 saves vs the Sharks at home in the win.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson lowered his GAA to 2.26, and raised his save % to .923. Johnson is getting more of the starts lately, while winning two out of the last three.

Chad Johnson extended his winning streak to four games Tuesday, holding the Stars to a single goal on 30 shots.

Fantasy Impact: It was a nice rebound after Johnson allowed five goals over his last two games. He continues to win, and his save percentage is up to .931 on the season, making him a great option for what's been a middle-of-the-road Calgary club.

Buffalo Sabres G Chad Johnson had an impressive game on Thursday, stopping all 44 Ducks shots he faced to shut the team down and win 3-0.

Fantasy Impact: The Ducks aren't a very good team right now,but even with their struggles, this Johnson effort was a boon for Johnson's fantasy owners - of which there aren't many. After splitting time with Linus Ullmark, Johnson is 9-9-1 with a 2.33 GAA and .918 SV%.

Chad Johnson had a solid night in net on Saturday, saving 28 of 29 shots as the Sabres defeated the Predators 4-1.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson hasn't had much playing time with the strong play of Linus Ullmark, but Saturday night's effort shouldn't hurt his stock at all.


Category: , Game Recaps

Chad Johnson made 29 saves on 32 shots but allowed three goals in Saturday's 3-0 loss to the Dallas Stars.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson had allowed only three goals in his last three appearances on Saturday, but may have been a bit rusty after much of the recent playing time was given to Linus Ullmark.


Category: , Game Recaps

Chad Johnson was outdueled by Martin Jones of the San Jose Sharks Saturday, falling 2-1 in overtime.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson made 30 saves on 32 shots. He has allowed only three goals in his last 123 minutes of play with a .952 Save%.


Category: , Game Recaps

Chad Johnson had a great night on Tuesday, allowing one goal (Steven Stamkos on the power play). He even added an assist on Rasmus Ristolainen's empty-netter.

Fantasy Impact: After a series of poor starts, Johnson has now saved 40 of 41 shots. He's still not worthy of a fantasy hockey roster, but is improving, and may be a sneaky, cheap play in daily leagues.


Category: , Game Recaps

Chad Johnson made 10 saves in Thursday night's 4-1 loss to the Lightning. However, the Sabres were already down 3-0 before he even entered the game.

Fantasy Impact: So, no win from Johnson, but still a nice effort. Tampa effectively parked the bus after going up 3-0 in the first, managing only 10 shots through 40 minutes after 11 through the first 20.


Category: , Game Recaps

Chad Johnson allowed four goals Thursday versus the Penguins. He made 24 saves.

Fantasy Impact: While no one expected much from Johnson while Lehner recovers from a foot injury, he is keeping the Sabres in games to start the season. He holds very little fantasy value as he will rarely see wins and a shutouts seems very unlikely with Buffalo's defense.


Category: , Game Recaps

Chad Johnson saves 30 of 33 shots versus the Flyers last night, recording his third win of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson has filled in well for Robin Lehner so far. Tuesday was one of his better starts, and certainly the most saves he's made in a game all season.


Category: , Game Recaps

Chad Johnson, playing in place of the injured Robin Lehner, allowed seven goals and saved only 19 shots in Friday's 7-2 loss to the Canadiens.

Fantasy Impact: It was a truly terrible performance for a team destined to struggle this season. Hopefully Johnson can pull himself back together for his next starts and make the Sabres competitive.


Category: , Game Recaps

Chad Johnson continued his solid play in net on Wednesday, earning his second win with an overtime victory versus the Maple Leafs.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson made 23 saves in regulation and overtime before saving four of five shootout attempts by the Leafs. Keep watching Johnson's progress and Lehner's injury progression.


Category: , Game Recaps

Chad Johnson made 22 saves on 24 shots versus the Blue Jackets on Monday, earning his first win of the season.

Fantasy Impact: In two games filling in for offseason savior Robin Lehner, Johnson has only allowed five goals. He's holding his own so far, but likely won't be a terribly valuable fantasy asset.


Category: , Game Recaps

Chad Johnson turned aside 27 shots from the Lightning on Saturday, but allowed four goals in the Sabres' 4-1 loss.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson was playing in place of an injured Robin Lehner. He'll likely get the majority of starts while Lehner heals, with Nathan Lieuwen backing him up. Lehner was placed on IR earlier on Saturday.
