Jack Johnson D CLS Feb 26 '78

Jack Johnson was a plus-five in 21 games with the lowly Columbus Blue Jackets after his trade from Los Angeles.

This is a surprise as Johnson was minus-85 for the Kings in his almost five seasons in Southern California with a minus-12 best season this year for Los Angeles. To go from a minus-player for a much better team and become a plus-player with a cellar-dweller is hard to believe but Johnson accomplished the feat. Look for Johnson to become a 50-plus point defenseman in Columbus but do not expect a positive plus-minus next season.
