Originally taken by the Philadelphia Flyers, Johnson - a centre - was the 33rd overall pick in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft out of the USHL's Thunder Bay Flyers.

The native of Thunder Bay, Ontario, was a first-team All-America selection in 1991 and 1993, and a second-team selection in 1992.

He began playing for the Red Wings in 1993. His best season offensively came in 2001-02 when scored 18 goals and added 26 assists in all 82 games. He was traded at the deadline to Pittsburgh for Tomas Sandstrom, who ended up signing with the Mighty Ducks in the offseason.

"The 5'11" center was selected by the Predators in the 1998 expansion draft.

Johnson received a tryout from the Red Wings in 2006 but a physical prior to training camp revealed a heart issue that forced him to retire.

Johnson played in a total of 785 regular season games and posted 145 goals and 369 points.
