I just saw Mike Johnson on NHL On the Fly, turns out he landed a full time gig there and apparently is on a radio show as well. So while he's not playing hockey, he's definitely still on the map!

A handful of Johnson's appearances on TSN and The Score piqued XM's interest and he was asked to fill in on the weekend satellite radio show from Wayne Gretzky's restaurant.

They obviously liked what they saw and Johnson quickly became a regular. He appears daily on XM's NHL Power Play show, simulcast on the NHL Network. He also won a full-time gig on the network's NHL on the Fly.
