Ryan Johansen C CLS 1 Day
Ryan Johansen is playing extremely well with linemates R.J. Umberger and Nick Foligno.
The trio have played together in the past and were put back together at the start of last week. In two games which were both wins, the troika had three goals, five assists and a plus-five rating. "Right now, all three guys are playing good hockey," Umberger said. "Ryan is just breaking in to what all he can do in this league. His confidence is building every night. That's a big part of it, the way he's been playing. He's been great. But we've all started to jell. And we've played so many games together the last two seasons that it doesn't take long to jell." Johansen has four goals and eight points in his last six games and 10 goals and 22 points this season. Grab him in your pool if he is still available.

Ryan Johansen spent his first two NHL seasons honing his defensive game but, this season, his offense is kicking in.
Johansen had six goals and 13 points in his first 22 games this season. That's impressive considering he had just five goals and 12 points in all 40 games he played in last year's lockout-shortened campaign. Columbus coach Todd Richards has seen the difference. "He has made a step," Richards said. "He is more engaged in the games physically, he is getting involved in the corners and along the walls. It looks to me like he wants the puck more and as a player when you want the puck, especially with his talent, he's able to play with the puck more and is able to make more plays."

The fourth overall pick in the 2010 Draft is starting to show some offensive numbers that were expected of him when the Blue Jackets took him so high. It was the first time in his NHL career that Johansen had a three point night. He has five goals and 11 points in 16 games, one point less than he had last season in 40 games. He is worth picking up in most pools as he is seeing time as a top-six forward in Columbus with Brandon Dubinsky and R.J. Umberger.
