That's three points and a plus-5 rating in two games for Johnson, who is now up to 39 points in 78 games on the season. He's been producing consistently since mid-March and will have a chance to reach the 40-point barrier for the first time since 2010-11 when the Blue Jackets close out their regular season Saturday against the Islanders.

Johnson (illness) is on the ice for pregame warmups and appears in line to play Thursday against the Islanders.

The illness prevented Johnson from skating in the morning with the rest of the team, but it appears the extra hours off were all he needed to regain health. Barring a late setback in warmups, he'll slot in at his familiar spot on the Jackets' top defensive pairing.

Johnson supplied the game-winning goal in Tuesday's overtime victory over the Devils.

The backhanded tally was Johnson's seventh of the season, which represents his highest total for a season since 2011-12.

Johnson set up Mark Letestu's game-tying goal in an eventual shootout victory over the Oilers on Wednesday.

Johnson is just two points of besting last season's mark of 33, and will more than likely finish with the second-best scoring total of his career when 2014-15 comes to a close. Unfortunately, the Jackets' collective struggles this season have inhibited his fantasy value a bit, as he currently sits on a minus-18 plus/minus rating. Johnson has also had difficulty finding the net of late, as he's been without a goal since Jan. 29.

Johnson picked up a power-play assist Sunday, but it wasn't enough as the Blue Jackets lost to the Penguins, 5-3.

With 23 helpers on the season, Johnson is quite the skilled passer from the blue line. However, it's worth knowing if your league counts stats for plus/minus, as Johnson is a liability in that area at minus-18.

Johnson racked up an assist, four hits and a blocked shot in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Kings.Johnson is a decent contributor with the puck but you have to take the good with the bad. He isn't afraid to lay the smash on opponents and fight for loose pucks. However, he's a minus-17 on the year, which is cringe worthy for leagues counting that stat.
