C Ryan Johnson has agreed to come to Red Wings training camp on a tryout basis. He had other teams interested.â†µ
The 13-year veteran forward, who shares a birthday with yours truly, had six points in 34 games played with the Blackhawks last season and has just one plus-minus season in the NHL. Johnson has also spent time with the Vancouver Canucks, St. Louis Blues, Florida Panthers (twice), and Tampa Bay Lightning. He's done a nice job sticking around in the National Hockey League, but with the Wings rocking 14 other forwards, I don't see how Johnson makes it out of camp with a roster spot.
