12 Mike Johnson
 
About the Jersey
1993-94 Bowling Green State University
Home Stall & Dean Mesh, Size 56, CCHA Patch

Awesome overall wear, pounded with board burns and puck/stick marks. This jersey was worn by Johnson throughout his Freshman and Sophomore years at BGSU.

Mike Johnson enjoyed four solid years at Bowling Green University from 1993 to 1997. During his last year he registered 62 points in 38 games and was signed as a free agent by the Toronto Maple Leafs. In 1996 and 1997 he earned first-team CCHA all-academic honours and served as Bowling Green's co-captain. After the college season ended, Johnson showed surprising poise and offensive talent in the last 13 games of the NHL season.

In 1997-98 Johnson played his first full season in the league and showed flashes of star potential. He accumulated 47 points in 82 games to tie Boston's Sergei Samsonov for the rookie lead and was named to the NHL's All-Rookie Team. His 32 assists led all first year players.

After parts of three seasons with Toronto, Johnson was dealt to the Tampa Bay Lightning midway through the 1999-2000 season for gritty forward Darcy Tucker. Upon his arrival with the Bolts, he scored 22 points in 28 games and then joined Team Canada at the 2000 World Championships. Along with most of his teammates, Johnson struggled in 2000-01 with only eleven goals and 38 points in 64 games . In March, 2001, he was part of the package deal sent to the Phoenix Coyotes for the rights to holdout netminder Nikolai Khabibulin.

During the 2002-03 season Johnson established a career-high 63 points (23-40-63) before missing the majority of the 2003-04 season recovering from a shoulder injury.
