Columbus' top line of Ryan Johansen, Nick Foligno and Brandon Saad has been incredible this preseason.
In just three full games together, the trio has combined for 10 goals and 25 points. Whenever they are on the ice, they always seem to create plenty of scoring opportunities and teammates have noticed. "Instant chemistry," said defenseman Ryan Murray. "It's unreal to watch those guys, and to be out there with them. It's awesome." The Jackets should be fun to watch no matter where they finish in the standings. Oct 4 - 10:11 AM

Ryan Johansen scored twice and assisted once in the Blue Jackets’ 4-2 preseason win against the Penguins on Saturday.

Expect more of this moving forward for the 23-year-old. Johansen is primed to be a 30-goal, point-per-game player this season. Scott Hartnell (goal, assist) and Boone Jenner were the other goal scorers. Sergei Bobrovsky blocked 33 of 35 shots in a full slate.

The Blue Jackets are not panicking after the disappointment of last season.

They finished 11th in the Eastern Conference with a 42-35-5 record, primarily because of their rash of injuries. They led the NHL with 508 man-games lost last season. It's why president of hockey operations John Davidson is optimistic for this year. "It's behind us now," Davidson said. "You hear what people say about our team, and a lot of people are excited to see what this group can do if we stay healthy. What we endured last season … it's something I've never seen before, and I don't ever want to go through it again. But it's behind us now." They did not make any changes to their medical/training/conditioning staff. "We've studied our doctors, we've studied our trainers, we've studied how our players are conditioned," Davidson said. "It's just flat-out bad luck what we went through last season."

Ryan Johansen had an assist in a 5-0 win against Toronto Wednesday night.

Johansen snapped a two-game point drought. That wasn't his longest slump of the season, but it's never gotten much worse than that for him in 2014-15. His fairly consistent play has led to him recording 26 goals and 70 points in 80 games.

Johansen is now on a five game point scoring streak, with two goals and six points in that time. He has 24 goals and 63 points through 73 games this season.
Mar 25 - 2:11 AM

Ryan Johansen picked up his 23rd goal in the Blue Jackets' 4-3 SO win over Oilers on Wednesday.

Johansen had an overall nice fantasy night with four hits, two shots and a plus -1 rating in the game. He has taken a step backwards in the goal scoring department as he will be hard pressed to hit his 33 goal mark from last year. He is just four points short of the 63 they had in 82 games last season though. Mark Letestu and David Savard scored the other goals in the win.
Mar 19 - 1:44 AM

Ryan Johansen had an assist in a 3-2 loss to Carolina on Sunday.

Johansen has been terrific for most of the season, but he's slowed down lately with just two points in his last six contests. It shouldn't be too much longer before he turns things around again.

Feb 24 - 10:11 AM

Ryan Johansen had a goal and an assist in a 5-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday.

Johansen has 21 goals and 52 points in 55 contests in 2014-15. His success following his tense contract negotiations as a restricted free agent have been one of the few bright spots in an otherwise disappointing season for Columbus. At the age of 22, Johansen should be a scoring leader for the Blue Jackets for many years to come.
Feb 18 - 5:15 AM

Ryan Johansen had a goal and two assists on Friday.

Johansen was one of the leaders in the Blue Jackets 7-1 thrashing of St. Louis. He now has 20 goals and 48 points in 50 games with 20 points coming with the man-advantage. He is definitely a keeper next season.
