Marcus Johansson has been diagnosed with a concussion.

Johansson suffered the injury during Wednesday's game. As you'd expect when it comes to a concussion, there's no timetable for his return. That said, he won't play on Friday and we'd be surprised if he was available on Sunday.

Marcus Johansson (lower body) is expected to be back in the lineup on Wednesday night.

Marcus Johansson suffered a lower body injury in warmups Saturday.

Coach John Hynes talked on Sunday about the injury. "There was nothing previous to warmups, he just tweaked something in the warmup and didn’t feel like ... with the doctors, trainers and Marcus himself — there was no guarantee he’d be able to finish the game," Hynes said. "So it’s a lower body and right now he’s day-to-day." Johansson has three goals and five points in nine games so he is a fringe fantasy player at this time.

Johansson suffered a lower-body injury during warmup prior to tonight's game against the Arizona Coyotes. He has two goals and four points in four games to this point in the season.

A couple of giveaways early sealed Johansson's fate on the night. Johansson had two goals and four points in four games heading into Saturday's action so this is an anomaly. Look for 55-60 points from the former Capital.
Oct 15 - 8:51 AM

The New Jersey Devils are feeling confident as they defy expectations.

The Devils went 5-1-1 in the preseason and have won their first two regular season games. "Everyone in this room knows it’s not a fluke," Marcus Johansson said of their early success. "I think we showed it in preseason. Even though it was preseason, we did it in consecutively in preseason. We just went out and played the way we wanted to play. We played to our strength. I think we’re going to be really tough when we play that way. You’re not going to win every game but if we play like this, we’re going to have a lot of opportunities to win a lot of games and that’s a good thing." The Devils still have a lot of tests ahead of them before we can read into their performance this season, but they've at least been encouraging thus far. They'll aim to improve to 3-0-0 when they face Toronto on Wednesday.
Oct 10 - 6:03 AM

Marcus Johansson registered two goals and one assist in New Jersey's 6-2 victory over Buffalo on Monday.

Johansson was left off the scoresheet in the Devils' opener, but he wasn't quiet against the Sabres. He also finished the match with a plus-3 rating in 14:17 of ice time.
Oct 9 - 5:52 PM

Marcus Johansson will return to the left side for Monday's preseason game in Prince Edward Island.

Johansson had seen time at center this training camp but will line up on the left side with Nico Hischier at center and Drew Stafford on the right side. "We wanted to get Marcus some live reps and practice reps at center," coach John Hynes said. "When you talk to him, you know center and left wing is where he’s going to play so we’d like to get him a game at left wing, a couple of practices at left wing. Zacha looks like he’s done well in his games in the middle. Adam (Henrique), we know can play center and done a good job and Nico, he’s comfortable there. We’ll give those guys an opportunity to play and put Marcus on the left side to see what the lineup looks like. We’re just trying to toy around with that a little bit." Look for Johansson to get 20-plus goals and 50 points, down from last year's 24 goals and 58 points in Washington.
Sep 25 - 7:21 AM

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.
