Quick Prospect Notable on Kim Johansson

New York Islander Fan Central | 4/24/2008 01:33:00 PM |
Nothing definitive but Islanders fifth round pick #141 overall in 2006 according to
elite prospects.com has made a change to Kim Johansson's status as confirmed leaving Malmo for an unknown team as of 4/23.

Note-European Hockey.net does not have this on their transactions page at this time so take the information for what it is but both sites are very reliable and conservative with information along these lines. I would not waste anyone's time posting this otherwise.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Johansson according to terms of the new cba falls into the same group as Robin Figren and Tomas Marcinko in that he must be signed by June 1st or he can re-enter the draft this summer. It could mean a signing with the Isles or the prospect signing with another club in Europe which likely means he may not be signed by the deadline.

With about a month left it's something worth watching for now. I asked Michael Fornabio in his blog because he's always three steps ahead and does a great job for the fans.
