The Nashville Predators placed Ryan Johansen on the injured list on Friday morning.

An upper-body injury has cost him each of the last three games. Johansen has three goals and 14 points in 26 games this season. He's considered day-to-day at this point.
Dec 9 - 10:05 AM

Ryan Johansen is listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

Johansen missed the morning skate, so he shouldn't be expected to play Monday night versus Boston. He was hurt on Saturday, Dec. 2 against Anaheim.
Dec 4 - 12:04 PM

Ryan Johansen (undisclosed) didn't participate in Monday's morning skate.

That obviously doesn't bode well for his status for Monday's match against Boston. Johansen left Saturday's game late in the second period after he collided with teammata Kevin Fiala.
Dec 4 - 11:40 AM

Ryan Johansen sustained an undisclosed injury during Saturday's game.

Johansen left late in the second period after crashing into teammate Kevin Fiala. Johansen didn't return to the contest and the Predators didn't provide an update on his status after the game. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Dec 3 - 10:14 AM

Ryan Johansen scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 2-0 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Johansen opened the scoring at the 2:32 mark of the first period. That was the only goal of the game until Austin Watson buried an empty-netter in the final minute of regulation. Johansen has three goals and 16 points in 22 games this season. All three goals have come in his last five games. He also has eight points during that stretch.
Nov 25 - 12:09 AM

Ryan Johansen scored a goal and an assist in Monday's 5-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

Johansen's goal 26 seconds into the second period gave Nashville a 2-1 lead at the time and they never looked back. He also registered an assist on Nick Bonino's third-period tally. Johansen finished the game with a plus-2 rating and three shots on goal in 16:22 of ice time. The Preds forward now has two goals and 11 assists in 20 games this season. Both goals have come in his last three contests.
Nov 20 - 11:17 PM

Ryan Johansen scored a goal and picked up two assists in a 6-4 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

Johansen scored his first goal of the season and broke Minnesota's 195 minute shutout streak just 49 seconds into the first period. It was Johansen's first goal of the season, and he is currently sitting at 11 points in 18 games this season. Now might be the only time to buy low on the talented center.
Nov 16 - 10:56 PM

Ryan Johansen has gone 16 consecutive contests this season without a goal.

"As an individual, I've just got to find ways to create more," Johansen said. "It's a role that I'm counted on from the guys here to contribute offensively." He has supplied eight assists, but he has been credited with a mere 21 shots on goal. Johansen's shots per game is at a career-low pace and that isn't nearly good enough for a top-line center being paid $8 million per year. He will look to get on the board Tuesday night versus Washington.
Nov 14 - 4:18 PM

Ryan Johansen registered an assist in Nashville's 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Saturday.

That snapped Johansen's three-game point drought. He's gotten off to a somewhat quiet start this season as he has no goals and five assists in eight contests. Although Johansen had 33 goals in 2013-14, he's shifted away from being a goal scorer over the years. He'll still chip in occasionally, but that isn't his role anymore as illustrated by his 14 goals and 61 points in 82 contests last season. Still, the fact that he has just 12 shots on goal so far in 2017-18 is somewhat discouraging and we're hoping that's a pace that increases as we get deeper into the campaign, even if the vast majority of his points will come from assists regardless.
Oct 22 - 11:13 AM

Ryan Johansen contributed a pair of assists in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Boston.

He earned helpers on goals by Scott Hartnell (power play) and Viktor Arvidsson in the contest. Johansen racked up 47 assists last season and that will be the playmaking center's strongest attribute again in 2017-18.
Oct 6 - 10:48 AM

Ryan Johansen is excited for what the future holds with Nashville.

"There's no better place to be right now," he said. "As we were going through the process, that's what it was all about from the start. The class that they've shown with myself and committing and trusting me and believing in me for these next eight years is just so humbling." The Predators advanced to the Stanley Cup Final in 2017 and Johansen has played a key role in the team's success since he was acquired from Columbus. He agreed to an eight-year, $64 million contract on Friday. Interestingly, the deal doesn't have any trade protection, but it's unlikely that Nashville would be looking to move their top center anytime soon.
Jul 29 - 2:00 PM

Ryan Johansen's new contract with the Predators is an eight-year pact worth $64 million.

He is signed through the 2024-25 season at $8 million annually to the largest contract offered in Nashville's history in term and total cost. The Predators obtained Johansen from Columbus in January 2016 to serve as their number one center. The soon-to-be 25-year-old has produced 22 goals and 95 points in 124 games since the acquisition.
Jul 28 - 4:09 PM

The Nashville Predators have signed Ryan Johansen to a new contract.

Terms of the deal will be disclosed soon. Johansen tied for the team lead with 61 points last year, while producing a career high 47 assists. He also had 13 points in 14 playoff matches before he suffered a thigh injury, which ended his season.
Jul 28 - 3:46 PM

Ryan Johansen is reportedly looking for an average annual salary of at least $8.5 million from his next contract if it's long term.

Johansen can become a restricted free agent on Saturday after completing a three-year, $12 million contract. He's recorded at least 60 points in each of his last four campaigns, but $8.5 million annually is still probably too high for him. We'll see if he comes down from that.
