Top Kent Johnson News

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Scores lone goal in loss

    Johnson scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Kraken.

    Johnson tallied late in the second period after the Kraken committed a turnover in the neutral zone. The goal was his fifth point over the last five games. The 20-year-old is up to 10 tallies, 24 points, 65 shots on net and a minus-5 rating through 47 appearances, doing well enough to regularly log middle-six minutes.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Nets first career overtime tally

    Johnson scored a goal on four shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.

    Johnson secured the win halfway through overtime, snapping a 15-game goal drought with his first career overtime tally. The 20-year-old had five assists during that slump -- he's yet to find consistency at both ends of the ice, leading to a fluctuation in role and playing time. He's up to nine tallies, 13 helpers, 63 shots on net and a minus-5 rating through 45 contests this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Two helpers against Sharks

    Johnson recorded two assists in Saturday's 5-3 win over San Jose.

    Put on a line with veterans Boone Jenner and Gustav Nyquist after a sluggish start to the game for the Blue Jackets, Johnson set up each of his linemates for goals with some slick stickwork. The rookie hasn't scored a goal of his own in 14 games and has managed only five assists over that stretch, but Johnson still flashes enough upside to give him fantasy value in dynasty and keeper formats. On the season, the 20-year-old has eight goals and 21 points through 43 games.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Notches two assists

    Johnson picked up two power-play assists and a minus-1 rating in the Blue Jackets' 4-3 shootout win over the Hurricanes on Saturday.

    The third star of Saturday's contest, Johnson picked up helpers on both power-play goals by Kirill Marchenko in the second period. This performance snapped Johnson's five-game pointless streak. On the season, Johnson has eight goals and 18 points.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Scores in second straight

    Johnson scored his eighth goal of the season in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Flyers.

    Johnson and Kirill Marchenko scored less than three minutes apart early in the second period to give Columbus a 2-1 lead, but Philly's own young guns quickly answered back. Johnson has found the back of the net in back-to-back games since moving up to center the top line between Johnny Gaudreau and Patrik Laine, both of whom picked up assists on Tuesday's tally, and the 20-year-old has the elite offensive skills to hang with his two more experienced linemates. With Boone Jenner (thumb) out until the new year, Johnson appears set for an extended audition in the spotlight.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Pockets goal in loss to Dallas

    Johnson scored his seventh goal of the season in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Stars.

    Columbus was blanked for over 59 minutes, but Johnson ruined Jake Oettinger's shutout bid by sneaking a backhander past him with only 15 seconds left on the clock. The 20-year-old rookie didn't look out of place skating on the top line between Johnny Gaudreau and Patrik Laine, and while he has more value in dynasty formats than re-drafts leagues, Johnson could have some short-term fantasy appeal while he holds down that assignment.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Nets sixth goal of 2022-23

    Johnson scored a goal in Columbus' 4-2 loss to Detroit on Sunday.

    Johnson has six goals and 13 points in 20 games this season. He's been held off the scoresheet only once in his last four contests. Johnson hasn't had a scoring drought of more than two games so far in 2022-23 despite not playing a substantial role; he came into Sunday's contest averaging just 12:35 of ice time. The 20-year-old logged a season-low 8:14 in Friday's 4-1 victory over Winnipeg, but that jumped to 15:18 on Sunday.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Sends helper Friday

    Johnson recorded an assist in Friday's 4-1 win over the Jets.

    Johnson continued his warm run of late by helping out on an Erik Gudbranson goal in the first period. Since returning from a two-game absence with an undisclosed injury, Johnson has two goals and four helpers in eight contests, including his first career multi-point effort. The 20-year-old is up to five tallies, seven helpers and 22 shots on net in 19 outings overall, which could him some fantasy value in deeper redraft formats as a scoring-only forward.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Notches career first

    Johnson scored a goal and drew an assist during Friday's 3-2 loss to the visiting Islanders.

    Entering Friday tied for third among NHL rookies with four goals, Johnson continues climbing up the first-year scoring charts. The fifth overall selection in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft earned the first multi-point game of his 26-game career Friday. Johnson converted on a 5-on-3 situation, 33 seconds after Yegor Chinakhov's goal. The rookie shared the team lead with four shots during the loss.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Scores on power play Sunday

    Johnson netted a power-play goal in a 5-3 win against Florida on Sunday.

    Johnson has four goals and nine points in 15 games this season. He's been effectively lately, recording a point in three of his last four contests. Johnson's worth keeping an eye on because he's currently on the top power-play unit. That hasn't always been the case for him, but as long as Johnson stays in that role, he could be a solid offensive contributor.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Will play Saturday

    Johnson (undisclosed) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Islanders, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    Johnson sat out Thursday against the Flyers as he was 'dinged up', but coach Brad Larsen has said the rookie will be good to go Saturday. Johnson has three goals and three assists in 11 games this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Will not play Thursday

    Johnson (undisclosed) will not play Thursday versus the Flyers, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

    Johnson has three goals and six points in 11 games this season. He is "dinged up" and will miss his first game since he was recalled after Opening Night when Patrik Laine was injured.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Caps scoring Sunday

    Johnson scored his second goal of the season Sunday, leading the Blue Jackets to a 5-1 victory over the Rangers.

    Johnson has fit well on the second line as a rookie. The 2021 fifth-overall draft pick has collected two goals among four points in six outings. Those goals have come in his past two games. Johnson's ice time remains limited, however. He has surpassed 12:24 only once, earning 17:21 against the Penguins on Saturday.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Nets first NHL goal

    Johnson scored a goal Saturday in a 6-3 loss to Pittsburgh.

    This one goes on the mantle. Johnson took a pass from Jack Roslovic early in the second, skated in front of the net, and avoided a poke check from Tristan Jarry before scoring with his backhand. It was his first goal in 14 NHL games.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Recalled from AHL

    Johnson was recalled from AHL Cleveland on Thursday, per Aaron Portzline of The Athletic.

    Johnson, who was drafted fifth overall in 2021, played nine games last season for the Blue Jackets, picking up three assists. Johnson should see action, especially if Patrik Laine is unable to go after getting hurt Wednesday.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Assigned to AHL affiliate

    Johnson was assigned to AHL Cleveland on Wednesday.

    Elvis Merzlikins (illness) won't be available for Wednesday's matchup with Carolina, so Johnson will head to the minors to make room for goaltender Jet Greaves, who will serve as Daniil Tarasov's backup versus the Hurricanes. Look for Johnson to rejoin the big club once Merzlikins is ready to return.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Gets look on top line

    Johnson centered the Blue Jackets' top line between Patrik Laine and Johnny Gaudreau during Sunday's split-squad exhibition game against the Penguins, Bailey Johnson of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    The fifth overall pick in the 2021 Draft made his NHL debut at the end of last season as a teenager, and despite the fact that Johnson won't turn 20 until mid-October, the Jackets at least seem willing to give him a chance to earn a prominent spot in the lineup. The youngster drew praise from his star linemates after Sunday's contest for his skill and maturity, with Laine joking Johnson could be in the running for both the Calder Trophy as top rookie and the Selke Trophy as best defensive forward. If Johnson can stick between two point-a-game producers like Laine and Gaudreau, a Calder-worthy campaign certainly isn't out of the question, but coach Brad Larsen could cycle through a few different centers on the line this preseason before deciding who will get that plum assignment to begin the year.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Tacks on another assist

    Johnson recorded an assist in Friday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Senators.

    The 19-year-old produced his first NHL point (a power-play assist) in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks, and Johnson replicated that output in this latest contest despite only seeing 13:42 of ice time. This is a fun time of year for hockey fans that like to get a sneak peek at the league's prospects; Johnson is certainly in that group as Columbus' fifth overall pick from the 2021 draft.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Produces first NHL assist

    Johnson notched a power-play assist and two hits in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.

    Johnson had the secondary assist on Jack Roslovic's tally at 1:32 of the third period. The assist was Johnson's first point in four NHL appearances. The 19-year-old has been limited to a middle-six role since joining the Blue Jackets, but he saw a season-high 16:24 of ice time in this contest.
