Fantasy Summary

An offensive blue-liner who does his best work with the man advantage. Possesses a good shot, accurate but not overpowering. Possibly a second power-play option at the NHL level. Production will likely rely on time with the man advantage.

February 2021 – Johansson hasn’t been much of an offensive contributor through two SHL seasons, with only 11 points in 70 games over that span. He was heralded as an offensive-centric defenceman coming out of the draft, but it looks like he’ll need to rely on defensive and transitional play if he wants to push towards the NHL. Sam Happi

April 2019 – A defender with a high hockey IQ and a good first pass. He has shown flashes at both the SHL level and Allsvenskan over the past two season in his limited playing time. He has performed well in international play including six points in 11 games with Sweden’s U20 team this year. He finds lanes to skate the puck out of his zone and excelled at exiting the defensive zone. His in-zone play in his own end has been inconsistent, and he doesn’t engage physically and shies away from contact at times. His stick work has been solid at times but more work on his in-zone positioning is needed. With the ability to move the puck, he should work well as a two-way defender in the modern pro game.
