Aaron Johnson sounds like a pretty epic sports name. I can't believe there isn't a baseball player with that name already. Nope, just this journeyman of a defenseman. Like, seriously, this guy has JOURNEYED. He's played for 11 different pro teams since 2006, six of them NHL teams. That's a heck of a resume. And I don't really mean that as a good thing.
But we're in the Aaron Johnson era now - can we just call him AJ? That'd go along with Days of Y'Orr's Jon Fucile's opinion that he sounds like a 90's boy band member. Seriously.
Anyways, moving on. Interviews are the name of the game today, a couple of 'em: Ilya Bryzgalov gives one from hockey camp in Ufa, while Scott Parker, former Avalanche enforcer, gave a doozy of one to Mile High Hockey. Plus awkwardness from Jordin Tootoo's mom, and more...
