Shout out to Ryan Johnson

Publish date:

I was looking through the best and worst free agent signing list in the May 25th issue of THN and I must say Ryan Johnson deserves some praise.

He may not be a goal-scorer, but to a loyal Vancouver Canucks fan he is an invaluable character guy.

Johnson goes out and gives 110 percent and sacrifices his body for the good of the team. Many goals have been saved and valuable faceoffs won thanks to Johnson.

I would like to shout out my thanks to a player who not only played through injuries this season, but also never gave up and was fearless on the ice.
