History

After toiling in the second tier of Swedish hockey, Johnsson looks poised to make a permanent jump to the Swedish Elite League in 2004-05. He was also a memeber of Team Sweden at the 2004 World Junior Championship as a 19-year-old, however that was one of the worst Swedish teams in recent years, so it doesn’t carry as much prestige as it may have in years past.

 

Talent Analysis
A hard-working, hard-hitting, defensive defenseman, the big knock on Johnsson is his skating ability, or rather his lack thereof. He has made a reputation of being dependable and making the safe play in the past two years in the Swedish second division.
