Marcus Johansson is projected to see time at center during training camp.
New Jersey will audition replacements for Travis Zajac, who will be out until at least December due to a torn pectoral muscle, on the first line and Johansson has played in the middle before. "We've talked with Marcus since he's been traded. He was drafted as a center, he played some center in Washington at times when they've had injuries and I think he feels, in discussions with him, most comfortable at left wing and center," said coach John Hynes. "So we'll try him at left wing and center with a couple different combos in training camp." Adam Henrique and Pavel Zacha are also candidates to center the top line, while Zajac is sidelined.

Marcus Johansson understands why the Washington Capitals traded him this off-season.

"That’s part of the game," Johansson said of being traded from Washington to New Jersey. "Sometimes you have to change things and we had some good opportunities to win these past two years and we didn’t take them and I think this is what comes afterward. They have to change something and guys needed new contracts and stuff like that, so that’s the way it goes. There’s nothing more to say about it." Johansson had 24 goals and 58 points in 82 games last season. Don't be surprised if his numbers come down now that he's with the Devils.

Marcus Johansson is upbeat about the move to New Jersey even though he was traded from the Presidents' Trophy-winning Washington Capitals.

"Honestly, I just see the positives," Johansson said. "We have a really interesting team. It’s something that’s moving in the right direction, too. I don’t mind being an underdog, either. We have a great team and if we put all the pieces together, we can surprise a lot of people. I’m excited to be part of something that’s being built." The Devils probably aren't going to turn a lot of heads in 2017-18, but they are a team trending in the right direction in their rebuild. It certainly helps that they won the NHL draft lottery, allowing them to add Nico Hischier.
