There's always the chance that he'll feel worse with the passage of time - so keep an eye out for updates - but at the moment, it looks like Tyler Johnson dodged an injury bullet on Saturday.

There was a knee-to-knee hit from Evander Kane that left Johnson reeling, but he was able to return to the Tampa Bay Lightning's eventual 4-1 win against the Buffalo Sabres. Again, be advised to at least keep an eye out in case something comes of this.

Tyler Johnson suffered an undisclosed injury Saturday night against the Panthers.

The Lightning also saw Alex Killorn leave with an undisclosed injury. Johnson played 7:39 before departing. Both will be re-evaluated Sunday and more information will be known then. "I can sit here and say precaution, but we won't know for sure til tomorrow," coach Jon Cooper said. Johnson had 29 goals and 72 points last season.

Tyler Johnson played in Wednesday's preseason game against Nashville between regular linemates Ondrej Palat and Nikita Kucherov.

Tyler Johnson’s recovery from a broken wrist is going well.

Johnson broke it during the Stanley Cup final against the Blackhawks. Jon Cooper said he noticed the 25-year-old blasting one-timers into the net, something he couldn’t do in the final. "The kid is back," Cooper said. Johnson had 29 goals and 72 points last season, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him repeat that this year.

Tyler Johnson is still hoping to be fully recovered from his wrist injury by the start of training camp.

"It's progressing; I don't know if I would say that it's 100 percent, but it's getting there," Johnson said. "It feels better every day, so it's one of those things now that it just keeps getting strength and it feels better." He has been working hard over the summer to rehab a broken wrist that he suffered in the Stanley Cup Final. The Lightning expect him to be ready for camp.

Tyler Johnson is progressing from a broken wrist.

He was injured in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, but played the rest of the series with the ailment and didn't require surgery. Johnson no longer needs to wear a brace and he's looking forward to taking part in training camp. He is also hungry for more success after coming close to winning it all last year.

Updating a previous post, Tyler Johnson won't need surgery for his right wrist.

There was never much fear that Johnson would need surgery, but now it appears to have been officially ruled out. Which is good news for all parties involved. Johnson will look to build on his ever-growing annual point totals which have gone from 50 as a rookie, to 72 last season.

Tyler Johnson may not need surgery to repair his broken right wrist after all.

It was thought that surgery would be necessary, but it appears that Johnson could heal without any procedure. Johnson himself doesn't believe the break "is that bad". Stay tuned for further updates on Johnson's health status.

Tyler Johnson revealed that he suffered a broken right wrist early in the Stanley Cup Final loss to Chicago.

"Disappointing, you want to give 100-percent, especially in situation like this, really not capable of doing that," Johnson said after Monday's Game 6 and series loss. Johnson finished the series with just a goal and an assist, going pointless over the final three games with just four combined shots on goal. He is not expected to need surgery in order to recover.
Jun 16 - 12:18 AM

Despite leading the playoffs in goal scoring, Tyler Johnson was unable to lift his Lighting past the Blackhawks in Game 6 on Monday night.

Johnson finished the playoffs on a three-game slide, and without a goal in four. But he did finish with 13 goals, more than anyone else, and tied with Chicago's Patrick Kane for the points lead with 23. That may not provide much solace now for the 24 year old forward, but it will when it comes time to negotiate a new contract.
Jun 16 - 12:14 AM

Although the Lightning aren't saying anything it does appear that Tyler Johnson is playing hurt.

He is not taking faceoffs and seems to be slightly favouring a hand or arm when he's out on the ice. Johnson, who has continued to play at a high level despite the injury, is in a bit of a scoring drought which may be attributable to his alleged ailment. After scoring 12 goals in the first three rounds of the playoffs, Johnshon has tallied just once in Tampa's last eight post-season games. The Bolts are going to need Johnson to start scoring again if they are to defeat the Blackhawks, especially since Steven Stamkos is ice cold as well.
