Ryan Johansen is becoming an integral part of the Blue Jackets offense.

Johansen picked up an assist in the Jackets 3-2 loss to Chicago Saturday and registered a team-high five shots in the losing effort. The center also won eight of the 14 face-offs he took in the game including a crucial draw late in the contest while goaltender Steve Mason was pulled for an extra attacker. Some patience is required, but Johansen presents a nice keeper league value.
