Erik Johnson of the Colorado Avalanche practiced with the team today donning the red “No-Contact jersey”. Johnson has been out since December 2nd when he was cross-checked into the boards during a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Although EJ was in a No-contact, Nate MacKinnon didn’t listen.
Nate, who is leading the team with 50 points, gave some love to his old pal EJ in his return.
Johnson already has 6 points in his first 23 games of the season. The Avs have been alive in his absence but his return will just empower their team.
