Johansen to sit out game for Columbus on Tuesday
Hello everyone! We had a practice Monday morning and after practice we all went back to the hotel and had some lunch and then we headed across the street and had a big mini-putt tournament.

Of course, my team won. I was with Brandon Archibald, Allen York and Petr Straka and we came out with the win. There were a couple of side bets and it was fun.

We had a team dinner on the water and it was a beautiful restaurant. After that, we just relaxed the rest of the night and played some X-box and watched a movie so it was all good.

It was pretty big to get that rest in yesterday. I am sitting out Tuesday's game against Minnesota. Rest is a big thing in this sport, and making sure you're staying healthy, so it was nice to have a day off Monday and then to have Tuesday off. I know I'll feel re-energized and I'll be ready to go on Wednesday.  

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
