Marcus Johansson has to go to Sweden to resolve a passport issue.

Johansson is still expected to be in the Washington lineup on Thursday but leaving Sochi to go back home to Sweden will not help his jet lag recovery in time for the first game back. Johansson has seven goals and 36 points this season and was a replacement on the Swedish silver medal winning team for the injured Henrik Sedin.

Feb 12 - 11:59 AM

Washington forward Marcus Johansson, selected to replace the injured Henrik Sedin on Sweden's Olympic roster, has been good but not great in his fourth season with the Capitals.

He has seven goals and 29 assists, putting him on pace for 10 goals and a career-high 41 assists and 51 points. He admitted his disappointment at being passed over when the Swedish Olympic team announced its roster last month. The Swedes are considered among the favorites to medal in the Olympic tournament, which begins on Wednesday. "Obviously, it's a great experience for him, a huge honor," coach Adam Oates said. "You hope that for a young guy like him this will take him to another level as a player, to realize he was really close, he was on the bubble, and he gets a chance to go to the Olympics. It shows how the hockey world regards you." Oates said he hopes Johansson's Olympic experience gives him a boost for Washington's final 23 games of the season.

Marcus Johansson has been selected to replace Henrik Sedin on Sweden's Olympic roster.

Sedin will miss the Winter Games to recover from a ribs injury. That's a big blow to Sweden as they compete for the gold, but it will also add to what's been a great campaign for Johansson. Building on his solid 2013 campaign, Johansson has seven goals and 36 points in 58 games with the Washington Capitals this season.

Marcus Johansson suffered a lower body injury in the second period Friday and did not return.

Marcus Johansson moved back to the top line in the third period Friday.

Johansson replaced Martin Erat alongside Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom and set up Ovechkin in the third stanza to cut the Red Wings lead to one. Johansson has two goals and 17 points in 20 games this season and should be started in all but the shallowest fantasy leagues.

Marcus Johansson scored a goal and added an assist for the Capitals in a 3-2 shootout win over Minnesota Thursday.

Johansson is coming into his own this season with 14 points in 16 contests, though playing on a line with Alexa Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom is also a contributing factor. Ovechkin was the other goal scorer for Washington on this night.

Marcus Johansson was shifted to center when Alex Ovechkin was injured and he's expected to stay there for the time being.

He'll play between Brooks Laich and Troy Brouwer again in Thursday's game versus Minnesota. "I think I've always been more of a passer than a scorer, but I just think you take it as it comes. As a center, I think you do pass a little more," Johansson said. "I think there's a little more responsibility [at center]. It's a little different defensively, I think. So there's some adjustments you have to make. Last game was better than the first two games, so it just takes a little time." He has a goal and 11 assists in 15 games this campaign.

Washington winger Marcus Johansson, who recorded two points for a second straight game in a win over Edmonton Thursday, left practice early Friday.

Johansson was "just a little sore from (Thursday) night and a little stiff this morning. Tried to loosen it up and it was still bugging him a little bit so we said get off," Washington coach Adam Oates explained, adding that he doesn’t expect the forward to miss tonight's game in Calgary.
