Johansen scored a power-play goal and added an assist at even strength in Saturday's shootout loss to Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen continues to be a steady source of offense for Nashville, as the first-line center now has five goals and 23 points in 32 contests. While he's been playing on the first power-play unit, Saturday marked just his first tally with the man advantage this season. He's worth owning in most fantasy formats for his steady offensive production, with his 35 PIM being a nice bonus.

Johansen scored in a 2-0 victory against the Flames on Saturday night.

EDGE Analysis

The goal snapped a six-game goalless streak for the top center, but it's just his fourth of the season too. Last season, Johansen scored just 14 goals in 82 games, so while he is certainly still a 60-point guy, fantasy owners need to stop thinking of Johansen as a potential 30-goal scorer. He hasn't posted 30 goals since 2013-14, and he hasn't even scored 20 in one season since joining the Predators in 2015-16.

Johansen picked up two assists, including one on the power play, in a 7-1 victory over the Canucks on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen had missed three games with an upper-body injury before this one, and was considered a game-time decision. As such, it's encouraging for fantasy owners to see him not just play, but add a couple points to his season total.

Johansen (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve and participated in line rushes during morning skate, indicating he'll return to the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Canucks.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen is technically considered a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest, but all signs point to the 25-year-old pivot returning to action after missing the Predators' last three games due to an upper-body injury. If he plays as expected, Johansen will center Nick Bonino and Victor Arvidsson on Nashville's third line against Vancouver. The 2010 first-round pick has picked up three goals and 17 points in 26 matches this season.

Johansen (upper body) will be a game-time decision against the Canucks on Wednesday, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Based on the morning line combinations, it would appear that Johansen is ready to return to the lineup, although a final determination -- and his activation off injured reserve -- still needs to be made. While the center has done well in the assist category -- 14 overall with five on the power play -- he is struggling to find the back of the net (just three goals on the year).

Johansen (upper body) is hoping to suit up for Wednesday's clash with Vancouver, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen has been sidelined for the Preds' previous three outings, but is getting closer to returning to action. If the 25-year-old cracks the lineup, he figures to slot back into a top-six role and should retake his spot on the power play as well. Frederick Gaudreau will likely be the odd man out, depending on the status of Kyle Turris (face).

Johansen (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Due to a wide gap between scheduled games for the Predators, there's a chance that Johansen will only miss Friday's contest against the Golden Knights, but we'll learn a lot more about the punchy pivot's prognosis once he's able to practice. The B.C. native has added 17 points (three goals, 14 assists) over 26 games after signing an eight-year, $64 million mega deal with the Preds this past July.

Johansen (upper body) missed a second straight game Tuesday against the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen has yet to return to practice with his teammates, but he's still considered day-to-day, a label that suggests he could return to action as soon as Friday against the Golden Knights. The 25-year-old pivot has been a steady source of offense this campaign, notching three goals and 17 points in 26 games, so his owners should plan on slotting him back into their lineups as soon as he's given the green light.

Johansen (upper body) is considered day-to-day ahead of Monday's tilt against Boston, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

EDGE Analysis

The team's No. 1 centerman was absent from Monday's morning skate, meaning that he's unlikely to take on the Bruins. Johansen's next opportunity to play would be Tuesday in Dallas, though the Preds should provide additional updates ahead of the contest. With Johansen out of the lineup, expect the recently acquired Kyle Turris to assume additional offensive responsibilities.

Johansen was forced to leave Saturday's win over Anaheim after suffering an undisclosed injury in the second period, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen evidently suffered the injury after colliding with linemate Kevin Fiala, though no information regarding the pivot's health has given by the team. The former Blue Jacket isn't expected to be dealing with anything serious, though, as he was seen leaving the arena under his own power following Saturday's contest. Expect Nashville to provide an update on Johansen's status prior to Monday's game against the Bruins.
