Top Lucas Johansen News

  • Capitals' Lucas Johansen: Placed on waivers

    Johansen was placed on wavers on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Rogers Sportsnet reports.

    With the Capitals strongly linked to signing unrestricted free agent Ethan Bear, it seemed likely that Johansen would be sent down to the minors to create a roster spot. Johansen has not played since Nov. 18. The 26-year-old has one assist and seven blocked shots in six games this season and will report to AHL Hershey unless another club puts in a waiver claim.

  • Capitals' Lucas Johansen: Delivers helper in win

    Johansen supplied an assist and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 4-2 win over the Devils.

    Johansen has appeared in just six NHL contests since the Capitals selected him with the 28th overall pick in 2016 NHL Entry Draft. Still, he is making a strong case for himself to remain in the lineup between his high draft stock and his latest strong performance. It also doesn't hurt that defenseman Martin Fehervary suffered a lower-body injury Friday.

  • Capitals' Lucas Johansen: Back to minors

    Johansen was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Friday.

    The 25-year-old's demotion likely means that Martin Fehervary (upper body) will be ready to return Saturday against Montreal. Johansen has appeared in two NHL games this season but failed to record a point.

  • Capitals' Lucas Johansen: Recalled Tuesday

    Johansen was summoned from AHL Hershey on Tuesday, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

  • Capitals' Lucas Johansen: Returns to minors

  • Capitals' Lucas Johansen: Up with Washington

    Johansen made his NHL debut in 2021-22 and posted an assist in a game against Detroit. In 62 AHL contests, the 24-year-old blueliner had eight goals and 28 points. He will be sent to the minors if he clears waivers.

  • Capitals' Lucas Johansen: Inks two-year extension

    Johansen signed a two-year, $1.525 million extension with Washington on Friday.

    Johansen's new deal will be a two-way pact for the 2022-23 campaign and a one-way for the following season. The 24-year-old blueliner tallied an assist in his NHL debut last season but spent the rest of the year with AHL Hershey, scoring 28 points in 62 contests. He'll likely get an opportunity to compete for a bottom-four role with the NHL club in training camp.

  • Capitals' Lucas Johansen: Returned to AHL affiliate

    Johansen was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Thursday.

    The NHL plans to eliminate the taxi squad following the All-Star break, so Johansen could be in for a lengthy stay in the minors. The 24-year-old defender made his NHL debut Dec. 31 against Detroit, picking up an assist in 12:18 of ice time.

  • Capitals' Lucas Johansen: Brought up to taxi squad

    Johansen was recalled to the taxi squad Monday.

    Johansen made his NHL debut this season, grabbing an assist versus Detroit on Dec. 30. Despite his strong initial showing, the 2016 first-round pick should be expected to play the bulk of his minutes in the minors this year where he has tallied three goals and 10 helpers in 31 appearances. Given his offensive upside, the 24-year-old blueliner might be worth stashing in deeper dynasty/keeper formats but won't offer much in the way of value in re-draft leagues or daily contests.

  • Capitals' Lucas Johansen: Heads back to AHL

    Johansen was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Tuesday, per CBSSports.com.

  • Capitals' Lucas Johansen: On taxi squad

    The Capitals assigned Johansen to the taxi squad Sunday.

  • Capitals' Lucas Johansen: Earns helper in NHL debut

    Johansen produced an assist in Friday's 3-1 win over the Red Wings.

    Johansen played 12:18 in his NHL debut, and he was able to feed Evgeny Kuznetsov for the Capitals' first goal in the second period. The 24-year-old Johansen, the younger brother of the Predators' Ryan Johansen, picked up seven points in 22 games with AHL Hershey this season. The defenseman shouldn't be expected to be as successful on offense as his older brother -- Lucas' stay on the NHL roster may be a short one if the Capitals get any defensemen out of the COVID-19 protocols in the coming days.

    Johansen was placed on waivers Saturday.

    Johansen will report to AHL Hershey -- where he posted two assists in five games during the 2020-21 season -- unless he is claimed by a rival club. The 23-year-old has negligible fantasy value until he can carve out a regular role in the big leagues.
