johansson closed the season with at a 20 + goal pace in his final 20 games. he backed that up with 6pts in 9 playoff games. considering his age and that its nominal for rookies that young to fade in the final quarter of the season from wearing down, the way he closed his season was impressive.

if he just keeps that pace up without improving, he'll be in that 25-25 zone or close. the difference between season 1 and 2 is that johansson will start the season with the quality minutes and linemates that he only saw in the latter stages of this past season.

I would say there is a reasonable chance that he steps up another rung. I dont expect him to regress
