Mike McEwen could have put in the good word for Johansen, as they were defense partners when they both played for
the Toronto Marlboros in juniors. And he would have been right; Johansen did play solid when he was in the lineup,
combining physical play and good puckhandling skill.
His problems while with the Rockies were injuries, particularly knee injuries. He had two significant ones, the second,
an MCL tear, caused him to miss the majority of the 80-81 season.
Thus, it lead to him being unprotected in the waiver draft. The Kings picked him up, only to waive him in February that
season. The good news for him was that he finished his NHL career where it started.
He would play a few games for Springfield in the AHL the following season before retiring.
After doing so, he moved to Tucson, Arizona and became the owner of Southwest Soil Remediation Inc., a toxic waste
disposal company. He had also coached youth hockey down there.
