Paired on a line with Tysen Durant, Johnson and Durant made themselves known as a difficult to play against duo who could also accumulate a large amount of production, with 67 points this past season. Johnson is a skilled power forward who imposes himself on anyone in his way with big hits. His physical play is the main thing that stands out but has a good skill set to go along with it. Plays a power game but when he wants to can pull off some good dangles and play more of a finesse game. Good skater with decent first few steps and decent agility who has above average hockey IQ. Shot has power behind it and can get it off pretty fast with good accuracy. At times can run around taking bad penalties but generally keeps his game in check. Versatile player that can play any position as well as up and down a lineup in different roles.
