Erik Johnson Bio

Usually hockey players must hit the ice to make history. Not so for Johnson.

When the St. Louis Blues selected him with the No. 1 pick in the 2006 NHL Draft, the Bloomington, Minn., native became the first American-born defenseman chosen first directly from USA Hockey's National Team Development Program. He was also the second United States-born defenseman to be the top pick, following Bryan Berard in 1995.
