NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Nashville Predators announced on Wednesday they have acquired Ryan Johansen from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Seth Jones.
“Ryan is a big, young center that can score, set up goals, win face-offs,” Predators GM David Poile said. “He’s a No. 1 center who is still growing his game and has the size and skill that we have been looking for to match up with the best in the League.”
Johansen, 23, has played in all 82 games with Columbus in the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons.
He has had 26 points this season and 193 points for his career total.
