Erik Johnson

Colorado Avalanche

Erik Johnson notched the opening goal of the game on Monday, which started an unanswered four-goal streak for the Avs which set them up for a 6-3 win on the road. Johnson finished the game with one goal, a plus-1 rating, three shots and two hits.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson was open on the point and took a pass from newly acquired Nazem Kadri. He let a low wrister go and beat Holtby through the five-hole. It was a muffin of a goal from the blue line but he, and the Avs will take it. He has one point through five games this year and won't do much for fantasy owners in the points department.

Erik Johnson put an end to the OT on Thursday night vs. Winnipeg with the winning goal in a 3-2 playoff-clinching win. He compiled one point, a plus-2 rating, four shots, three hits and three blocks.

Fantasy Impact: "The Condor" decided to jump up into the play while Mackinnon moved the puck up his right. He was able to sneak past the defenseman and took a pass which he fired past Connor Hellebuyck for the win and punched the Avs' ticket to the post-season for the second year in a row. With one game remaining he posts a 2018/19 line of seven goals and 24 points.

Erik Johnson got the Avs on the board last night scoring the first of three goals they hung on Dallas in a 3-1 road victory. He tallied a goal, a plus-1 rating, two shots, two hits and two blocks.

Fantasy Impact: The goal came on even strength as Johnson and his defense partner Sam Girard swapped to the off hand and Johnson clapped a one-timer past Ben Bishop. It was his sixth goal and 21st point of the season.

Erik Johnson buried a goal on Wednesday night helping the Avalanche overcome the Pittsburgh Penguins 6-3. He finished the game with one point, a plus-4 rating, a team high six shots, and two hits.

Fantasy Impact: A very nice fantasy game for a d-man. Especially the six shots on goal. He ripped a shot from the right point and beat Tristan Jarry low and away for his second of the season. Johnson is starting to gain momentum and should start to see more points fall his way. He will typically provide solid numbers in the hits and blocks categories and if he's feeding Colorado's top line from the rear guard, that can only mean good things for him on the score sheet. He's only 41% owned in Yahoo! leagues and could sneak into your lineup as a nice defensive acquisition come December.

Erik Johnson dished out three helpers and accumulated a plus-3 in the Avalanche's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

Fantasy Impact: Erik Johnson has suffered some injuries over the years since being traded by the St. Louis Blues to Colorado back in 2011. If he can stay healthy and get games in, he should provide decent point production as he sees time on the PP and typically racks up needed defensive categories in Hits and Blocks.

Johnson had a good all-around game for the Avalanche with his two assists, four shots on goal and six hits. He also finished with a plus-one rating in 24:28 minutes of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: Last season he played in 73 games scoring 11 goals with 19 assists but like many Colorado players, struggled to keep pucks out of the back of their net with a minus-19 rating.

Erik Johnson scored his second goal in as many games in Wednesday's win over the Canadiens. He finished with four shots on goal.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson is turning in one of his better months of the season, as he continues to see solid ice time and take a fair amount of shots for a D. Still, his +/- doesn't help his cause.
