Playing CareerEdit

On March 26, 2009, Johan signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.

After the 2009 training camp, he was sent to the Adirondack Phantoms as Ray Emery and Brian Boucher were slated to be the Flyers goaltending tandem for the 2009-10 NHL season.

Johan was called up briefly in early October when Brian Boucher was injured, but did not play before being returned to the Phantoms.

On November 1, 2009, he earned his first shutout on North American ice against the Syracuse Crunch.

On March 27, 2010, Johan made his NHL debut against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

He allowed 2 goals on 24 shots, but had to exit the game after 2 periods, having reaggravated a groin injury. The Flyers lost the game 4-1 and he got the losing decision.

On June 11, 2010, he signed a two-year contract extension with the Flyers. On January 6, 2012, Johan was reassigned to Oulu in Finland.
