Erik Johnson Relaxed

from the Gazette,
In The Broadmoor Hotel West lobby, Erik Johnson has found peace, for two days at least. He is 18, a few weeks removed from high school graduation. He’s also the projected No. 1 pick in the NHL draft June 24 in Vancouver, British Columbia. At 6-foot-4, 222 pounds, Johnson is a rarity — a defenseman adept at multitasking, playing well at both ends of the ice. “He’s one of the best prospects we’ve had in a long time,” said Jim Johannson, USA Hockey senior director, hockey operations.
