February 22, 2019 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Rochester Americans News Release

(Rochester, NY) - Rochester Americans General Manager Randy Sexton announced today that goaltender Jonas Johansson has undergone successful surgery and will miss the remainder of the 2018-19 season.

"We're pleased that Jonas' surgery was successful and he will start the rehab process tomorrow," said Sexton. "He is a talented young goalie that has developed nicely over the past two seasons and we have every expectation that this slight setback will in no way derail his continued development."

A third-round pick of the Buffalo Sabres in 2014, the 23-year-old second-year netminder posted a 4-1-0 record with a 2.26 goals-against average and a .926 save percentage in five appearances with the Amerks this season. The Gavle, Sweden, native also appeared in 27 contests for the Cincinnati Cyclones (ECHL), where he went 18-5-2 with a 2.60 goals-against average, a .908 save percentage and three shutouts.

Johansson was named the CCM/ECHL Goaltender of the Week for Nov. 12-18 after going 2-0-0 with one shutout, a .050 goals-against average and a .981 save percentage and had season-long a five-game win streak with Cyclones from Nov. 4 to Nov. 23.

In 19 career American Hockey League games with the Amerks, the 6-foot-5, 214-pount netminder has posted an 11-7-1 record with a 3.05 goals-against average and a .891 save percentage.
