Johnson

A mature and effective defenseman, he’s not a high-octane puck rusher or offensive threat, but he sticks to his on-ice acumen. Skating speed does have control, as he does not fire around the ice in top gear for the entire game. Knows when to cool the engines. Dynamic stance and can flex on the hinge…

A mature and effective defenseman, he’s not a high-octane puck rusher or offensive threat, but he sticks to his on-ice acumen. Skating speed does have control, as he does not fire around the ice in top gear for the entire game. Knows when to cool the engines. Dynamic stance and can flex on the hinge points in order to generate speed. Can pivot and edge efficiently to suffocate space or escape to open ice. Makes detailed choices to facilitate transition and shut down offensive plays in his own end. Defensive skating and awareness make him a threat with stick work and gap closure. Does not over-complicate his puck control. Does a good job of making plays without dusting the puck. Keeps his hips open to passing partners, which allows him to see the whole ice while he receives the puck. Utilizes the weak side of the ice to enable space for transition and support his teammates up ice. Looks to adapt a more offensive style as he grows, as game management is his forte. Excels at making consistent and proactive reads while play develops. Got a keen eye on the neutral zone with the goal of play disruption. Is not adverse to jumping on opponents while taking an angle, and isn’t afraid to go get involved in the play. Plays a simple game and provides a reliability.
