10/25/2013 12:06:00 PM
Description: Colorado defenseman Erik Johnson is doubtful for Friday's game against Carolina with a bruisded foot.
Insight: Johnson had fantasy value back in 2009-10 when he put up 10 goals, 39 points, 79 penalty minutes and 186 shots, but his numbers have been dropping steadily since then. He's off to a decent start with a goal and two assists in nine games this season.
 
3/8/2013 1:50:00 PM
Description: Colorado defenseman Erik Johnson (head) has been activated from the injured list, though its still not certain he will play Friday versus Chicago.
Insight: Johnson had fantasy value back in 2009-10 when he put up 10 goals, 39 points, 79 penalty minutes and 186 shots, but his numbers have been dropping steadily since then. He has just one point in 11 games this season and fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see attitude before putting him on a roster or starting him.
 
2/13/2013 6:02:00 PM
Description: Colorado defenseman Erik Johnson (head) is out indefinitely. SOURCE: Denver Post
Insight: Johnson had fantasy value back in 2009-10 when he put up 10 goals, 39 points, 79 penalty minutes and 186 shots, but his numbers have been dropping steadily since then. He has just one point in 11 games this season.
 
2/12/2013 11:54:00 AM
Description: Colorado defenseman Erik Johnson is questionable for Wednesday's game against Minnesota with an upper body injury after taking a hard hit from the Coyotes Martin Hanzal.
Insight: Johnson had fantasy value back in 2009-10 when he put up 10 goals, 39 points, 79 penalty minutes and 186 shots, but his numbers have been dropping in the seasons since then. At this point he's got little fantasy value even when healthy.
 
Cold3/24/2012 8:45:00 AM
Description: Colorado defenseman Erik Johnson is questionable for Saturday's game against Vancouver due to back spasms.
Insight: Johnson has four goals on 141 shots and 20 assists this season, but hasn't scored a point in 10 March games. You should be looking elsewhere for defensive scoring.
 
3/18/2011 4:18:00 PM
Description: X-rays were negative on Erik Johnson's ankle, and he is likely to play on Saturday against Edmonton. Denver Post
Insight: Johnson was forced to leave Thursday's game against Calgary after he took a puck off the ankle. He has six points (3g-3a) and a (-7) in 12 games since joining the Avs in a trade from St. Louis.
 
2/19/2011 9:05:00 PM
Description: Johnson went from the Blues to the Avs Saturday, in exchange for D Kevin Shatterkirk, RW Chris Stewart and a second-round pick.
Insight: Johnson never quite lived up to the offensive output the Blues expected after drafting him in the first round, but Colorado GM Greg Sherman said, "We are excited to be adding a top young defenseman in this league, a player who will have an impact on our blue line for several years to come." Johnson has 19 points and a minus-8 rating so far this season. (RapidDraft.com)
 
2/19/2011 3:06:00 AM
Description: The St. Louis Blues have traded defenseman Erik Johnson, forward Jay McClement, and a conditional first-round pick to the Colorado Avalanche for forward Chris Stewart, defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, and a conditional second-round pick. TSN
Insight: The Avalanche are acquiring a former first overall pick, but they seem to be giving up an awful lot in return. Part of the reason for that assessment of this trade is that Johnson has been a bust this season with just 19 points (5g-14a) and a (-8) in 55 games. McClement is a solid role player with virtually no fantasy value.
 
12/24/2010 9:04:00 AM
Description: Johnson scored his second goal of the season on Thursday against the Red Wings.
Insight: Johnson now has two goals and nine assists in 33 games so far this season. (RapidDraft.com)

12/17/2010 12:10:00 PM
Description: Erik Johnson is currently day-to-day with a sprained knee. BND.com
Insight: The fear was that Johnson had a knee injury that was more significant, since it was on the same knee that was seriously injured a couple seasons ago. He may miss a few games, but this injury won't be long-term.
 
12/16/2010 1:57:00 PM
