Former Wing Greg Johnson Passed Away At Age 48

from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,

Former Nashville Predators captain Greg Johnson, known for his soft-spoken, affable demeanor, died Monday morning at his home, according to a family friend.

The friend asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to disclose the information.

No cause of death was provided.

Johnson, 48, was taken by the Predators in the expansion draft. He was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in the second round in 1989, though he never played for them and was traded to the Detroit Red Wings. After four years at the University of North Dakota and appearances with the Canadian National Team, he began his NHL career with the Red Wings in 1993-94.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
