Friday Five: Get to know Ryan Johansen

Hockey Idol? Joe Thornton.

There are definitely similarities between Thornton and Johansen: they're both big-bodied centers who control the puck and make plays, they both wear No. 19, and they're both pretty good in the face-off circle. As a youngster growing up in Port Moody, B.C., Johansen watched as many of Thornton's games as he could and tried to model his game after his boyhood idol.
