Brinkman has had a good year, but he doesn’t skate nearly as well as Johnson, and it’s not even close. He also doesn’t pass, handle the puck, or see the ice as well. Brinkman is a steady defenseman, but Johnson is an elite college hockey player.

He’s a little small and doesn’t step into the offense much, but he’ll definitely get his chance at the next level.

What I like about Johnson is he is, for the most part, pretty steady Eddie. Knows his role and plays it well. It’s been a lot of fun to watch the pairing of him and Faber. This entire D corps has been great. Haven’t had one this solid in years.
