A look at Marcus Johansson's "sketchy" past

20 - Number of regular-season games in which Marcus Johansson has earned a trip to the penalty box, out of 384 total. Johansson has accumulated a grand total of 42 penalty minutes over his six seasons (and just a single minor penalty in the playoffs, picking up his first postseason PIMs in Game 6 against the Islanders last spring). He finished sixth in voting for the Lady Byng trophy in 2013-14.

Here's the breakdown of his regular-season infractions to date, including last night's bad hit on Thomas Hickey (for which he will have a hearing):

Penalty Frequency
Illegal Check to the Head 1
Boarding 1
Delay of Game 3
Holding 2
High-Sticking 3
Tripping 3
Hooking 4
Roughing 1
Slashing 1
Closing Hand on Puck 1
Intereference 1

Oddly enough, his only two penalties for hits have come within the last week - last night's check to the head, and a boarding call against Buffalo last week.
