Johnson was a seventh round pick of Toronto’s (202nd overall) in the 2013 NHL draft and has been playing with Frolunda in the Swedish League ever since. The 21-year-old scored 19 goals and 44 points in 52 games in Sweden this season before coming over to the Marlies. He is one of many young Leafs prospects who will get a long look at training camp next fall.
Defeceman Dan Kelly of the Devils was given a match penalty for the hit which appeared to involve an elbow to the head.
The Marlies scored near the end of the major penalty to extend their lead to 4-1. Toronto trails Albany 2-1 in the second round, best-of-seven series.
