Marcus Johansson Signs With The Sabres; What Role Will He Play?

Marcus Johansson signed a two-year, $9 million contract with the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. The 28-year-old forward short stint with the Boston Bruins comes to an end.

The Swede played 10 regular-season games and scored three points. In the Stanley Cup playoffs, he made a big impact and scored 11 points (four goals, seven assists) and a game winner. Johansson played 48 games (12 goals, 15 assists) before being dealt with the Bruins in February of the trade deadline. 

How That Impacts The Sabres

The Sabres finished the 2018-19 season with a 33-39-10 record (6th in Atlantic Division). Johansson skills, leadership, and experience fills the needs for the Sabres. A player of his caliber can provide mentoring and learning for young-stars like Jack Eichel and Rasmus Dahlin. 

The veteran is expected to use Johansson in a top-six role and power-play. The Sabres finished the season with just 221 goals (23rd in NHL) and ranked 16th (19.5 percent) in the power-play.
