Blue Jackets Injury Update: Ryan Johansen will be playing tonight

Columbus Blue Jackets center Ryan Johansen will be in the lineup for tonight's game against the Detroit Red Wings, according to the Blue Jackets twitter account.

Johansen didn't practice Monday with what coach Todd Richards told the team's official website was lingering soreness from Saturday's two to one win over the San Jose Sharks. Johansen had slammed his left shin into the goal post during the third period after being tripped and slipping to the ice during a mini-break. He got up, appeared to skate off in pain and was back for the next shift. However, Richards would not say if the collision was the cause of Johansen's injury, as per the Columbus Dispatch.

Johansen has 20 points (six goals, 14 assists) so far this season.
