Jack Johnson is having his bankruptcy claims disputed by at least two lenders.
RFF Family Partnership and Pro Player Funding are contending that Johnson and his parents are not estranged and are conspiring to cheat the bankruptcy court. Last November, Johnson claimed $10 million in debt after he said that his parents made several high-risk loans in his name and without his knowledge. Johnson is facing federal fraud charges and possible jail time if he is found guilty of conspiring with his parents or of lying on his bankruptcy filing. Sep 21 - 4:17 PM

Jack Johnson registered an assist in a 4-1 loss Tuesday night.

Johnson has five goals and 24 points in 46 contests in 2014-15. Those aren't bad numbers by his standards, but it's mitigated by his ugly minus-25 rating. Unfortunately, we don't see Johnson doing any better from a plus/minus perspective for the rest of the season as he'll continue to log plenty of minutes on a Columbus team that's already out of the playoff race.

Jack Johnson was minus-two on Friday and is now an NHL worst minus-18.

It's been a tough year for the defenseman who had to file for bankruptcy on October 7 after his parents allegedly took advantage of him after Johnson gave them power over his finances. Johnson does have a goal and nine points with 12 penalty minutes but his plus/minus kills all his fantasy value, if you play the category in your pool.

Jack Johnson scored once and received huge cheers from the Columbus crowd on Friday.

Johnson's plight has been revealed in the last few days as he was forced to file for bankruptcy after giving his parents power over his finances and having his parents allegedly taking advantage of the situation by taking out a series of loans that turned so bad, Johnson had only $50,000 worth of assets and $10 million-plus of debt. We wish him the best of luck.

Jack Johnson filed for bankruptcy on Oct. 7.

Johnson reportedly had given his parents power over his finances and they took advantage of the situation by taking out a series of loans against his contract and used it to purchase cars for themselves, a house, and other things. It got so bad that Johnson reportedly had more than $10 million in debt and had assets of less than $50,000. "I'd say I picked the wrong people who led me down the wrong path," Johnson said. "I've got people in place who are going to fix everything now. It's something I should have done a long time ago."

Jack Johnson has been suspended for three games for his high hit on Carolina's Jiri Tlusty.

The NHL ruled that Johnson's hit was not late, but he did make the head the principal point of contact. Tlusty suffered an upper-body injury as a result of the hit. Johnson doesn't have a suspension history though, which likely worked in his favor. He will be eligible to return on Nov. 14.
