Johnson was suspended for slashing New York Islanders forward Frans Nielsen during the Avs contest on Saturday, February 8. The incident occurred at 12:09 of the third period. Johnson was assessed a minor penalty for slashing. The slash resulted in a broken hand for Nielsen. Ryan Wilson will slide into the lineup for Johnson.

Defenseman Erik Johnson, who left with an injury in the third period of the Avalanche's 3-2 loss to Phoenix on Monday, is not practicing Wednesday and appears to be the latest to join Colorado's long injury list.

This would be a big loss for the Avalanche as they are already banged up and Johnson is their #1 defenceman. Monitor his status going forward for a more detailed update.
