Won't skate at training camp
DDallas Stars
Head
September 13, 2019
Johns (head) is out indefinitely and won't participate in Dallas' training camp, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
This is a disheartening development, as Johns appeared to be making major strides in his recovery from post-traumatic headaches this offseason, partaking in on-ice training on his own and also skating at the Stars' development camp. The 27-year-old hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since 2017-18, and this point it looks like he might be in danger of missing the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2010
While he doesn't offer much offensive upside, Johns emerged as a secondary category monster last season and was one of only seven players in the NHL to record at least 150 hits and 150 blocked shots while playing in a career-high 75 games. The 6-foot-4 defenseman uses his size and reach very effectively to gum up the works for the opposition offense, and the Stars rewarded Johns for his efforts with a three-year contract extension in the offseason. With John Klingberg, Esa Lindell and Julius Honka handling the scoring duties off the blue line, Johns will be more than happy to do the dirty work instead.
Johns earned a fairly consistent role with Dallas last year. This year, there's more competition for minutes and coupled with his limited offensive potential, it's hard to see him being a big fantasy producer unless the situation on the blue line changes.
Johns was taken 60th overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He though is expected to be skating for the University of Notre Dame this season.
