Avoiding a trip far away from his British Columbia home has brought Johansen to the first round of this draft, thanks in large part to his chemistry with linemate and fellow first-round cinch Nino Niederreiter. The two clicked quickly, giving the Winterhawks a lethal line combination.
After at least one more year -- probably spent helping Niederreiter terrorize opponents -- in the WHL, Johansen should be ready to compete for a spot on an NHL roster in 2011. Right around the same time, his buddy Niederreiter will be showing up in (most likely) a different NHL city, chasing the same dream.
