Johansson figures to fit in on Buffalo’s 2nd or 3rd line.
He has topped 20 goals in a season just once in his career, but has hit the 40-point mark five in five different seasons, including 58 in 2016-17. Johansson has played for the Washington Capitals, New Jersey Devils, and Boston Bruins, and has 334 points (120 goals, 214 assists) in 588 NHL games.
It’s a short-term deal for a player who can immediately help out on offense.
