Johansen scored one goal Thursday, potting a third-period marker in a 3-0 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

The center scored a beautiful backhand goal on what was a partial breakaway, beating Jets netminder Connor Hellebuyck top shelf to essentially seal the deal. Johansen is logging heavy minutes for Nashville, having led all forwards in ice time Thursday. The Predators are hopeful he can eclipse the 20-goal mark this season, something he hasn't done since 2014-15.

Johansen lit the lamp twice in Nashville's 5-4 overtime win over Carolina on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Nashville's top center scored his team's first and final goals and appears ready for regular-season action. The Predators hope Johansen can rediscover his scoring touch in 2018-19, the 26-year-old has been unable to eclipse the 20-goal mark since arriving via trade in 2016. Plagued by long bouts of inconsistency in his career, Johansen has scored just 43 goals total in the last three seasons.

Johansen was the primary distributor on P.K. Subban's lone goal in Thursday's 5-1 series loss to the Jets, as the centerman delivered on the power play.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen helped wake up the home crowd in the first period, but it was a fleeting moment of jubilation as the Predators lost in Game 7 at Bridgestone Arena. While Nashville failed to advance to the conference finals, the British Columbia native bestowed 14 points (five goals, nine assists) on his fantasy owners in the playoffs and easily trumped his 0.68 points-per-game output from the regular season.

Johansen fashioned a power-play assist Thursday in a 2-1 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen has been terrific in these playoffs, as he's uncorked four goals and six assists for a point-per-game pace dating back to the conference quarterfinals against the Avalanche.

Johansen had two power-play assists but finished with a minus-3 rating in Tuesday's 7-4 Game 3 loss to Winnipeg.

EDGE Analysis

While Johansen has picked up the pace offensively with four points in his last two appearances following a three-game dry spell, he's still leaving much to be desired in other categories. He was held without a shot on goal for the third time this postseason and looked overmatched at even strength. Like many of his teammates, Johansen will need to display a more complete two-way effort in Thursday's Game 4 or Nashville will have a tough time tying this series at two games apiece.

Johansen scored two goals in a 5-4 double-overtime win versus the Jets in Sunday's Game 2.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen started the playoffs off with a bang, notching five points in his first four games. However, he had been held pointless for three contests until this outing. With these two goals, though, the pivot has 16 points in his last 19 games.

Johansen picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche in Game 1.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old finished the regular season with four goals and nine points in his final 11 games, but Johansen kicked things up a notch to start the postseason. He's now scored 23 points (seven goals, 16 assists) in 29 career playoff games since joining Nashville, and he should remain a key part of the team's attack as it looks to get back to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Johansen recorded a goal, a power-play assist and won 11 of 15 faeoffs during Thursday's 4-3 road win against the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen is heating up at the right time with three goals and seven points in his last eight contests. The Predators will need the 25-year-old center to continue producing well if they are to prevail in the playoffs, and his prominent role on a talented offense should make him an early selection in all 2018-19 fantasy formats.

Johansen scored his team's only goal in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Wild. He also registered three shots on goal, blocked three shots and added two PIM in 19:21 of ice time.

EDGE Analysis

Now at 47 points with just eight games remaining, Johansen is unlikely to match the 61 points he posted last season, but something in the low 50's is still well within reach. He remains a fixture on the Preds' top line alongside Viktor Arvidsson and Filip Forsberg, and should be counted on for fantasy production whenever he takes to the ice.

Johansen scored a goal on his lone shot and had a helper in a 4-2 win versus the Ducks on Thursday. He also picked up five penalty minutes.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen has 68 PIM now, which isn't a ton but it certainly is notable for a top-line center who sees time on the power play. If you are in the kind of league that still counts penalty minutes that's a nice little bonus. The 25-year-old has arguably been a little disappointing, as he only has 10 goals and 34 assists through 64 games. However, those are far from terrible numbers, and Johansen has the kind of talent around him that could help him get hot at any moment.
