A strong intelligent two-way defenceman who skates with a fluid stride. Not afraid to block shots, make some hits and has a decent point shot. The offense is starting to come along.

June 2020 – Johansson recently put ink to paper and signed his ELC with the Wings. Detroit signed the puck-rushing defenseman after a solid SHL season in which he collected 42 points in 13 appearances with Färjestad. With a heap of holes to fill in on the Wings’ blue-line in the near future, a full season in Sweden working on his game and physical development will only see him inch closer to a possible roster spot in Detroit.

March 2020 – Johansson has taken the step to full-time SHL blue-liner this season with ease. He was an easy choice for the five nations under-19 tournament and didn’t disappoint. The offense has been building slowly for him, we see flashes game to game of his smarts in the offensive zone and his wicked shot. Always steady on the blue-line, Johansson should be a terrific pick for Stevie Y in the second round. Ashley Glover
