Ryan Johansen (thigh) expects to start skating in a couple of weeks.

Johansen will rehab in the summer after he was diagnosed with acute compartment syndrome in the Western Conference Final against Anaheim. He feels like is moving a bit ahead of schedule, so he should be ready before the start of the 2017-18 campaign.
Jun 13 - 6:30 PM

The Nashville Predators have confirmed that Ryan Johansen was diagnosed with acute compartment syndrome.

That was reported on Saturday, but now there is a Predators' statement on the matter. "Rapid diagnosis and treatment are critical to prevent complications," Predators GM David Poile said. "His symptoms developed shortly after the end of Game Four in Nashville, and as they progressed, he was diagnosed, transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and had surgery performed by head team physician Dr. Jed Kuhn within two hours of his diagnosis. As a result, he had no permanent injury to his muscle, nerves or blood vessels and we expect a full and complete recovery. The Predators would like to thank Vanderbilt Life Flight Paramedics, the VUMC Emergency Department, Operating Room Nurses, and Anesthesiologists for their expedient and excellent care." Johansen will not be able to return before the end of the playoffs, but he should be available for the start of the 2017-18 season.

According to a source, Ryan Johansen was diagnoseed with acute compartment syndrome.

It should be noted that the Predators have not confirmed that this was the problem. Due to the trauma caused by a hit to his thigh, Johansen suffered from not having enough blood supplied to the area. It requires immediate attention and can be a life-threatening issue if not dealt with quickly. We are happy the medical staff caught the injury and we wish him a speedy recovery and hope he is back at full strength for the start of the 2017-18 regular season.
May 20 - 6:01 PM

Coach Peter Laviolette declined to give any updates on the status of Ryan Johansen.

He stated that the Nashville Predators organization does not comment on the status of players. All we know is that the Predators will be without their star center for the remainder of the playoffs because of a thigh injury sustained in Game 4.
May 20 - 5:19 PM

Ryan Johansen is done for the playoffs after suffering a left thigh injury during Thursday's game.

That's a massive blow to the Predators' chances of beating the Anaheim Ducks and winning the Stanley Cup. Johansen is a key part of their offense and has been effective in the playoffs with three goals and 13 points in 14 games. The only other Predators forwards with at least 10 points in the postseason are Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson, so the Predators will be counting on their secondary scorers as well as their offensive defensemen to find the back of the net. If there's any silver lining, it's that Johansen is expected to be fine in two-to-three months, so this injury shouldn't impact him in 2017-18.

Ryan Johansen notched a goal and an assist in Sunday's 5-3 loss to Anaheim.

His third goal of the playoffs and 10th assist gave Nashville a 2-0 lead before the halfway mark of the first period, but the Ducks battled back to take Game 2. Johansen leads the Predators in postseason scoring with 13 points in 12 contests.
May 15 - 10:02 AM

The acquisition of Ryan Johansen last season is arguably one of the key events that led to the Predators reaching the Western Conference Final for the first time.

Getting Johansen in exchange for defenseman Seth Jones went a long way towards bolstering the Predators forward group to the point where it would be competitive in the playoffs. Even without Jones, Nashville has an elite group of defensemen, but the Predators would have taken a significant hit offensively had they never acquired Johansen. He's also stepped up in the playoffs with two goals and nine points in 10 games. That's good enough to tie him with Ryan Ellis for the team lead in points.
May 12 - 10:44 AM

Ryan Johansen scored the game-winning goal and registered an assist in the Predators' 3-1 win over St. Louis in Game 6 on Sunday.

Johansen had been held off the scoresheet in each of Nashville's previous four games, but he picked a great time to break out of his slump. Defenseman Roman Josi also had a goal and an assist, giving him eight points in 10 playoff games. Calle Jarnkrok scored an empty netter with a minute left in regulation time to provide Nashville with some insurance. This victory has propelled the Predators to the Western Conference Final for the first time in their franchise history.
May 7 - 6:02 PM

Ryan Johansen is slumping at the wrong time.

He has not registered a point in four consecutive playoff games. In fact, Johansen's line, which features the Predators' three leading scorers from the regular season, Filip Forsberg, Viktor Arvidsson and Johansen himself, has registered a combined three points in five games against the Blues. This is in sharp contrast to the 15 points the unit recorded in a sweep of the Blackhawks in Round 1. If the Preds are to dispose of the Blues and advance to the third round, Johansen and his linemates are going to have to step it up.
May 7 - 8:00 AM

Ryan Johansen had a great opening-round series against Chicago.

He helped shut down the best players on the Blackhawks and he led all skaters with six points in five games. "I knew I was going to have a great challenge and I was going to be looked at," Johansen said. "Knowing that I played solid against Toews and got the job done versus him, why can't I do that against anyone?" Johansen also posted one goal and five assists in the series.
Apr 25 - 12:47 PM

Chicago has not been able to handle Nashville's top line of Johansen, Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson, which is why the Predators hold a 3-0 series lead.
Apr 18 - 11:57 AM

Ryan Johansen scored a goal and registered two assists in Nashville's 5-0 win against Chicago in Game 2 on Saturday.
