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

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
