Ryan Johansen notched two goals and an assist in Friday's 5-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

Johansen picked up a goal and an assist on the power play in the second period and he added his second of the game in the third frame. The Preds center managed to double his goal total for the season tonight. He has four goals and 14 points in 20 games. It's his second multi-point game in his last three outings, which is encouraging for his fantasy stock.

Ryan Johansen scored a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Dallas Stars.

Johansen did all of his damage in the third frame. He scored a power play goal at the 6:09 mark of the period to give Nashville a 3-1 lead at the time. He also helped set up James Neal's goal with 16 seconds left in regulation. Johansen is off to a disappointing start in 2016-17. He has just two goals and 11 points in 19 games this season. Johansen should be able to get his numbers up fairly soon.

The Nashville Predators are off to a disastrous start this season and a big reason for that is because their top offensively players aren't scoring.

Many expected the Preds to be Stanley Cup contenders this season, but they haven't played like it so far. Ryan Johansen, James Neal and Filip Forsberg have combined to score just two goals in 10 games this season. "We've had moments where we've been really good," Johansen said of his team's play. "We've got a young team in here. It's all about the consistency. As individuals and as a team, we've got to bring the same effort and same game every single time we get on the ice." It's still early enough that Nashville can turn their season around, but they'll have to do it quickly.

Ryan Johansen scored his first goal of the season Tuesday night versus Colorado.

Ryan Johansen exited Friday's game against Detroit because of an illness.

He played just 4:01 before leaving the game in the first period. Johansen is considered day-to-day at this point. Nashville takes on Pittsburgh on Saturday night. We'll provide an update on Johansen's status as soon as the Preds provide one.
Oct 22 - 11:31 AM

Ryan Johansen scored three assists in Friday's 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Preds expect big things from Johansen and he delivered with a perfect start to the season. All three of Johansen's points were collected on the man-advantage. The 24-year-old finished the game with a minus-1 rating and one shot on goal in 19:10 of ice time. It's just one game, but he's starting to look like a must-own in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 14 - 11:13 PM

Ryan Johansen says he's in the best shape of his life and he's ready for a breakout season.

The Predators gave up talented blue liner Seth Jones so that they could acquire Johansen from the Blue Jackets. "No doubt last year I had a setback," Johansen said. "With how I feel right now in this moment and learning over my five years in the league, I feel like I'm in the best shape of my life. Strength-wise, I'm the biggest I've been, strongest I've been, most mature my body's been." If he really is as committed as he says, Johansen could be in for a big year. He's proven in the past that he's fully capable of scoring 30-plus goals and/or 70-plus points.
Sep 24 - 9:35 AM

Predators GM David Poile is expecting Ryan Johansen to have a big year in 2016-17.

"I think Ryan is going to have his best year ever in the National Hockey League," Poile said. "I mean, that’s probably a lot of pressure and I guess a challenge. A lot of things happened, if you will, for him to be available in the first place and for him to be traded from Columbus to us and it was a huge trade when we traded Seth Jones for Ryan." The 24-year-old put up a respectable 60 points in 80 games last season, but only 14 of those points were goals. It's a big year for Johansen, as his current contract expires at the end of the upcoming season.
Aug 16 - 9:29 PM

Nashville and Ryan Johansen might start discussing a contract extension early in the 2016-17 campaign, but that's not where his focus is now.

"For me, the approach is we're going to get something done if I do my thing," Johansen said. "My whole thing is having a great summer of training, being in the best shape I can be in and just doing my thing on the ice. ... If I put myself in a situation to have success where my body's in the shape I want it to be in and I gain that confidence over the summer with all of the work I've put in, I feel like the sky's the limit for me and I can do some great things." Johansen had 14 goals and 60 points in 80 games last season, which was down from 71 points in 2014-15. It's not an exaggeration to say that he's entering an important year which will play a big role in gauging if he can reach another level. He's entering the final season of a three-year, $12 million campaign, though he's only eligible for restricted free agency, so Nashville doesn't have to feel pressured to get something done sooner rather than later.
Jul 18 - 4:24 AM

Ryan Johansen scored the only goal of the second period, tying the game 2-2, in the Nashville Predators 4-3 overtime win over the San Jose Sharks on Monday night.

Johansen's goal changed the momentum of the game, and got the home crowd into the contest. He now has four goals and four assists in 13 playoff games played this season, including three points (2G, 1A) in his past five games played. Johansen's goal was assisted by Ryan Ellis.
May 10 - 1:00 AM

Ryan Johansen scored in Sunday night's 3-2 loss to San Jose.

He found the back of the net with just four seconds left in the third period, but the game was already over at that point. The Sharks had a two-goal cushion when Joe Thornton scored into an empty net in the final minute. Johansen has contributed three goals and three assists in nine postseason matches.
May 2 - 9:38 AM

Ryan Johansen popped a goal and an assist during Friday's 5-2 Game 1 loss to San Jose.

Johansen continued to be a force to be reckoned with during his 17:10 of play. He registered a minor, two hits, two takeaways, plus a block, and scoring on his only shot. He's now up to two goals and four points in eight games this postseason.
Apr 30 - 1:41 AM

After dropping three straight games to the Ducks, Ryan Johansen knows it's time for the Preds to step up their game.

"You look at any team that's won the (Stanley) Cup, and it's never smooth sailing through the playoffs," said Predators center Ryan Johansen. "Adversity is going to hit, and our backs are against the wall now." The 23-year-old hasn't produced much during the series. He scored his first goal of the playoffs in Game 5 and has two points overall. Nashville trails 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.
Apr 24 - 9:29 AM

Ryan Johansen netted a marker, but it wasn’t enough as the Predators fell 5-2 to the Ducks in Game 5 on Saturday night.

Nashville needs its big boys to step up, and in this one only Johansen did so. He has one goal and an assist in this series, now 3-2 in favor of the Ducks. But it wasn’t as if the Predators didn’t create chances -- they won the even-strength scoring-chance game 17-10 and out-possessed the Ducks at even strength, too. But it wasn't enough, mostly because of poor goaltending. Johansen scored the first goal at 14:13 of the first period, then Miikka Salomaki pulled within 3-2 in the third period. Shea Weber, Mike Ribeiro and Colin Wilson got the helpers.
