Undrafted, Johnson was signed right out of college by the Toronto Maple Leafs upon the completion of his senior year Bowling Green State University. Johnson made his professional debut for the Leafs within days finishing the 1996–97 season. The following year in the 1997–98 season, Johnson was named in the NHL All-Rookie team after compiling a rookie lead tying 47 points. Johnson exceeded his rookie points total in two campaigns with the Phoenix Coyotes.
On July 12, 2006, Johnson was traded to the Montreal Canadiens. The following season, on October 4, 2007, he signed a one-year contract with the St. Louis Blues but only played in 21 games before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury.
Johnson is an analyst for the NHL Network and TSN. He previously served as colour commentator for the Winnipeg Jets, a role he assumed since the beginning of the 2011 season. When Rogers Media won the NHL rights, he moved to Sportsnet to work on national games and he was assigned to his first conference final in 2015, the first of two in a row. Johnson's services were terminated by Rogers Media on August 10, 2016. He re-joined TSN in September 2017.
Johnson and his wife have two daughters together.
