Ryan Johansen
North American Skater
Portland, WHL
Final Rank:  10 Midterm Rank:  16
Position:  Center Shoots:  Right
Height:  6' 2" Weight:  192
Born:  July 31, 1992    
Birthplace:  Vancouver, BC, CAN
• Through the first two rounds of the 2010 Western Hockey League playoffs, Johansen led all rookies in scoring, recording 18 points (6-12--18) in 13 games before Portland was eliminated. He finished the 2009-10 regular season second in scoring among WHL rookies with 69 points (25-44--69).

• He was only 5’9” and 150 lbs. during his Bantam draft year, but a year playing Junior ‘A’ in the British Columbia Hockey League for the Penticton Vees as well as a growth spurt helped Johansen make an impact as a WHL rookie – he now measures 6’2” and 192 lbs.

• For most of the 2009-10 season, Johansen played on a line with 2010 draft prospects Nino Niederreiter (No. 12 ranked) and Bradley Ross (No. 59 ranked). In total, the Portland Winterhawks have five draft-eligible players ranked in the top 90 North American skaters.

• He patterns his game after his favorite player, San Jose Sharks forward Joe Thornton – “I go on NHL.com every once in awhile and try and watch his games and just learn tips from him kind of. He's outstanding to me, his play-making ability and vision just blows me away.”
