Ryan Johansen had better than expected last season posting 26 goals and 37 assists through 79 games. This gave Johansen an average of .8 points per game. That number is very respectable.
However, Johansen has not produced anywhere close to the same level this year. With nine goals and 11 assists, Johansen is currently on pace for 0.49 points per game this season.
Johansen’s -9 in the +/- column already sets a mark for the worst +/- of his career. The last time Johansen was a -6 or higher was with the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2014 – 2015.
Penalties has also been an unexpected problem for Johansen. His 32 penalty minutes put him on pace for the second-most throughout his 12-year NHL career. With no fighting majors to his name, that is a rather significant amount of penalty minutes for a veteran player.
Looking at all of Johansen’s statistics, the only one that sticks out on a positive note is his face off win percentage. Johansen has won 59.2% of his faceoff’s this season. He currently ranks sixth in the faceoff circle through the first half.
