I'll tell you one thing about Ben Johnson, that kid has some wheels, and a Parise-esque motor that did not quit. And he's REAL good defensively. From that Kitchener/Windsor game I watched, he's mostly being relied on in the defensive zone on a crash and bang sorta line. He showed some soft hands on his goal and he surprised me with his vision a couple times, but he looks to be pretty average offensively. But the hockey sense is there. I can understand why people got a "Henrique" impression from him, but I don't think we can expect an offensive epiphany out of Johnson. He could be a real dependable bottom 6 guy in the future though.
