New Jersey Devils

Johansson left Tuesday’s game after being elbowed in the head and did not return.

Johansson took what looked to be a purposeful elbow to the head from Brad Marchand in the third period and had to be attended to by the training staff. Johansson did not return to the game and Marchand will have a hearing for the incident. Johansson likely won’t be available for Thursday’s game but could be ready after the All-Star break.

Johansson left Wednesday’s game with an upper-body injury and did not return.

Johansson returned to the lineup on Wednesday after missing one game with a lower-body injury and he did not last long. Johansson crashed face-first into the end boards during his first shift of the game, but was able to leave the ice under his own power after being attended to by the medical staff. Head coach John Hynes said Johansson will be re-evaluated on Thursday.

The Capitals signed Marcus Johansson to a three-year deal worth $13.75 ($4.58M AAV).

Johansson, 25, has settled in nicely with the Capitals since they drafted him 24th overall in 2009. He had 46 points (17G / 29A) in 74 games last year, continuing his consistent mid-40’s point production. At just 25, there is room for him to grow into a mid-50’s player, especially in an explosive Capitals’ offence. Draft him as the player he has been with room for upside.
