Tyler Johnson (upper body) should be back at some point this week.

Johnson is still a possibility to even play on Wednesday. Prior to his injury he was off to something of a slow start by his standards as he has 10 points in 19 contests.
Nov 25 - 11:52 AM

Tyler Johnson remains a possibility to return Wednesday from an upper-body injury.

He has missed the last three games due to the ailment, but could return against Los Angeles. The Lightning weren't saying much about their injured players on Tuesday, but we should get more definitive updates after the morning skate.
Nov 25 - 8:28 AM

Tyler Johnson (upper body) took part in Saturday's morning skate without complications and appears to be on track to return Wednesday when the Lightning host Los Angeles.

He has missed the past three games with an upper-body injury. Tampa Bay is getting healthier, so Mike Blunden, Mike Angelidis and Luke Witkowski went back to the minors on Sunday.
Nov 23 - 11:15 AM

Tyler Johnson (upper body) will sit out Thursday's game versus the New York Rangers.

He sat out Monday's game with an upper-body injury and is considered day-to-day.
Nov 18 - 4:19 PM

Tyler Johnson is dealing with an upper-body injury, but it's not believed to be a concussion.

"That's not what has come up," coach Jon Cooper said. "I think he's sore up there and has our chiropractor working on him, and a masseuse, stuff like that, and I know he's not getting a scalp massage." He was injured on a hit by Florida's Dave Bolland on Saturday, but he managed to return to the game.
Nov 17 - 10:50 AM

Tyler Johnson (undisclosed) will miss Monday's game against Florida.

He didn't skate Sunday after he was injured Saturday. Coach Jon Cooper indicated that Johnson's injury is not concussion related, but he believes it happened when Johnson was hit by Panthers forward Dave Bolland. Johnson also wasn't on the ice for Monday's optional session, but he hasn't been ruled out for Thursday's contest against the Rangers.
Nov 16 - 12:31 PM

Tyler Johnson assisted on the game winning goal, then scored a crucial insurance marker to lead Tampa Bay past Calgary 3-1 on Thursday night.

It's Johnson's first multi-point effort in exactly one month, and just his second of the year. The 25-year-old has three goals and 10 points in 18 games so far this season, a bit of a letdown considering his performance last season.
Nov 12 - 11:48 PM

Tyler Johnson is hoping that his first goal of the season this past Sunday will open the floodgates.

"When you get a goal, you get that confidence and it goes into the net, you feel that relief," Johnson said. "You feel some pressure getting off, kind of relax a little bit and once you relax, it's when you play your best hockey." He had one goal in the opening 12 games of the 2014-15 campaign before finishing with 29.
Nov 3 - 2:56 PM

Tyler Johnson scored for the first time in 13 games on Sunday.

He didn't have a goal in the opening 12 contests of the season, but got the game winner against Carolina on Sunday. Johnson has six points on the season.
Nov 2 - 10:22 AM

Tyler Johnson will indeed play against Boston on Saturday.

The Triplets Line will reunite as Johnson will center Ondrej Palat and Nikita Kucherov on Tampa's second line. They have four goals and 11 points combined on the season, though Johnson is the only one without a tally.
Oct 31 - 6:49 PM

Tyler Johnson was on the ice for Saturday morning's skate.

He did not practice Friday for what was called "body maintenance" but it appears there is a good chance he will play Satuday night against Boston. We would take the chance and activate him.
Oct 31 - 11:57 AM

Tyler Johnson didn't participate in Friday's morning skate.

Johnson's absence was classified as "body maintenance," but he's also questionable for Saturday's game. He's coming off of a 72-point campaign, but has gotten off to a slow start with five assists in 11 games.
Oct 30 - 1:54 PM

Tyler Johnson is still searching for his first goal of 2015-16.

Tampa Bay has received goals from 11 of the 13 forwards to play in a game this year, but Johnson hasn't joined that group yet. Cedric Paquette, who has been limited to three games, is the other Lightning forward without a goal. Johnson will look to add to his four assists, and possibly find the back of the net, against Winnipeg on Friday night.
Oct 23 - 9:23 AM

Tyler Johnson picked up an assist in Saturday's 2-1 win over Buffalo.

He registered the primary assist on Alex Killorn's game-winning goal. The 25-year-old still has no goals, but he has four assists in six games this season. Johnson suffered a broken wrist during last year's playoffs and it's entirely possible that the injury has led him to a slow start.
