Tyler Johnson(25) Norfolk Admirals

Undrafted Norfolk Admirals‘ rookie center Tyler Johnson(25) finished his first pro year with some impressive numbers. In 75 AHL games he scored 31 goals and 37 assists, while going a +17 plus/minus for the Calder Cup Championships.

Limited to 14 postseason contests due to a lower body injury, he was still a point-per-game player with 6 goals and 8 assists, including 2 strikes in the series-clinching finale.

He was voted Reebok/AHL Player Of The Month for March, as the Admirals were en route to a 28-game unbeaten streak, he put up 22 points in 12 games. The speedy forward was also named to the AHL All-Rookie Team.

The 5’9″ 175 lbs. 21-year old signed a 3-year entry level contract with Tampa Bay Lightning.

No doubt he’ll continue turning heads as he enters his second season.
