NHL CapHit: $1,150,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Rangers have signed Jack Johnson to a one-year contract worth $1.15 million.

After the Penguins bought out the final three years of his contract on Tuesday, the Rangers brought in Johnson on a one-year deal to have him replace Marc Staal. Johnson struggled in Pittsburgh, making this signing a little curious. But at the very least it allows the Rangers' young defensemen more time to develop.

Johnson is expected to be back in the Penguins lineup for Game 2.

Johnson was a healthy scratch in Game 1 with Brian Dumoulin returning from injury but Johnson will likely replace Olli Maatta, who struggled in the overtime loss, on the blueline in Game 2. Johnson appeared in all 82 regular season games this season, picking up one goal and 12 assists (13 points).

Johnson (undisclosed) left Monday’s game and did not return.

Johnson was forced to leave Monday’s game vs. the Devils and did not return. Head coach Mike Sullivan did not have an update on Johnson’s status post-game but expects to have more information on Tuesday. This is poor timing because the Penguins depleted their blueline depth on Monday, trading Jamie Oleksiak to the Stars.

The Penguins have signed Jack Johnson to a five-year contract worth $16.25M ($3.25M AAV).

Johnson is a former No.3 overall pick, who has had a few bad years. Johnson is coming off of a season in which he had a -5.4 relative Corsi and was a healthy scratch during the playoffs. However, Johnson remains a high-end skater who can play a physical style of game and brings some offence as well. In Pittsburgh, he will be an upgrade on Chad Ruhwedel as a third-pairing defenseman.

#BlueJackets D Jack Johnson was injured last ngt in STL. Left game in 2nd (upper body). C-Bus put him on IR today/called up Johansen. #NHL

Make sure to get Johnson out of your lineup because he won't be playing in the near future. Johnson was placed on IR and is a massive loss for the Blue Jackets. Johnson eats up 26:13 a game on average. Columbus is now without Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov and Johnson... Arguably their three best players.
