Jack Johnson has successful surgery, out for season
Jack Johnson had successful sports hernia related surgery yesterday. Expectation is he will make a full recovery by June/July.

The Rangers are healthy on the blue line, so using Jack Johnson wasn’t likely going to happen much going forward. Libor Hajek will step up as the 7D in Johnson’s absence. This effectively ends Johnson’s tenure as a Ranger, and also removes him from any potential deadline deal.
