Jack Johnson was added to Team USA's roster for the World Cup of Hockey in September.

He wasn't included on the 2014 Olympic roster, but he has represented the United States at several other tournaments including the Winter Games in 2010 as well as five World Championships. Johnson's season ended in March because of shoulder surgery, but he should be ready in time for the Word Cup.

Jack Johnson has undergone shoulder surgery.

Johnson will miss the remainder of the 2015-16 campaign, which admittedly doesn't tell us much about his timetable given how little is left of the season. Johnson will finish with six goals and 14 points in 60 contests in 2015-16, which represents a steep decline after he recorded 40 points in 2014-15.

Jack Johnson (upper body) will sit for a fifth consecutive game on Tuesday.

He hasn't played since Feb. 25, but said the injury originally occurred before that. "It's something I've been dealing with for a while," Johnson said. He is hopeful that he will play again before the end of the regular season. Johnson participated in the Jackets' optional skate Tuesday after he was on the ice on his own Monday.
Mar 8 - 4:32 PM

There is currently no timetable for the return of Jack Johnson (upper body) to the lineup.

It was thought that Johnson would be out a couple of weeks when diagnosed over a week ago but it appears that diagnosis has gone out the window. Johnson has not had a great offensive season with six goals and 14 points in 60 games but coach John Tortorella thinks that Johnson will return before the end of the season.

Jack Johnson was credited with six blocked shots in Columbus' 2-1 win over Calgary Friday night.

Johnson's efforts didn't go unnoticed by Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella.

Johnson has been limited to 14 points in 52 contests this season, but he's also second on the team with 88 blocks.
Feb 6 - 4:30 AM

Jack Johnson recorded an assist in a 5-2 loss to the New York Islanders Tuesday night.
