Tyler Johnson is projected to play between Alex Killorn and Brayden Point Thursday.

It was speculated that he could center the top line with Steven Stamkos out, but Vladislav Namestnikov centered a combination with Ondrej Palat and Nikita Kucherov during the morning skate.
Nov 17 - 3:30 PM

Tyler Johnson will probably center Tampa Bay's top line with Steven Stamkos sidelined due to a knee injury.

That will likely give him back Nikita Kucherov as a winger, which should help Johnson get back on track from a sluggish start to the year. He has five goals and nine points through 17 matches.

Nov 11 - 8:44 AM

The Tampa Bay Lightning's power play is red-hot right now.

The Bolts have scored a power play in three straight games and have five total during that span. "The power play, if you have it working, it's a huge advantage," forward Tyler Johnson said. "Even if you don't score goals, you want to be able to … get things going for you. For the most part this season we've been doing that." The fact that the power play is working so well is good news for Johnson, Steven Stamkos, Nikita Kucherov, Victor Hedman, Ondrej Palat and Alex Killorn's fantasy stock.
Nov 5 - 7:07 AM

Oct 30 - 12:22 AM

Tyler Johnson is eager to bounce back in 2016-17.

"I can't wait for this season, to really show what I can do," Johnson said. "I've got to get back to the player I know I can be." The broken wrist he sustained during the 2015 Stanley Cup Final proved to be more troublesome than Johnson and the Lightning originally anticipated, but he is fully recovered from that now. He is physically and mentally ready to get back on track.

Tyler Johnson (wrist) is feeling 100% going into training camp.

Johnson broke his wrist during the 2015 Stanley Cup Final and that problem ended up plaguing him for the entire 2015-16 campaign. That likely played a meaningful role in him being limited to 14 goals and 38 points in 69 contests last season compared to 72 points in 2014-15. His wrist problems finally came to an end in July.

Steven Stamkos believes Tyler Johnson would have flourished at the World Cup of Hockey.

He was surprising left off of Team USA's roster though. "He's a great player, he's been a producer in big time moments," said Stamkos, who is on Team Canada. "You'd think a tournament like this would be the type of stage where he'd excel. But again, that's a question you'll have to ask (Team USA) management." Johnson has compiled 42 points (21 goals, 21 assists) in 47 NHL playoff games.
Sep 20 - 10:11 AM

Tyler Johnson's broken wrist during the 2015 Stanley Cup Final was a problem that persisted well into the 2015-16 campaign.

"I had no strength, didn't really have flexibility," Johnson said. "It took me a long time to be able to do anything. It was pretty much about January I could finally do a push-up." Johnson went from recording 72 points in 2014-15 to just 38 points last season. If his wrist was bothering him to that extent, it would help explain that drastic decline. He's looking forward to the 2016-17 campaign though and feels "stronger than I've ever been."
