The Boston Bruins big trade deadline acquisition, Marcus Johansson, hasn't had the chance to prove what he can do yet. 

The forward was injured during just his fourth game with the Bruins and hadn't been heard of since. 

Johansson finally rejoined his teammates for practice this week after taking that big hit back in March. 

He's excited to prove what he can do. 

"It was a lot of fun to get out there after missing a couple weeks, it's fun to be out there with the guys and practice," said Johansson. "It's good to get some battle in and make sure everything is OKwhen you're out, you just miss it. There's nothing worse than sitting out and watching. Just excited to be here."

Johansson will likely lineup again with Jake DeBrusk and David Krejci who he played with before he got injured. 

"They're fun guys to play with" said Johansson. "I had a lot of fun the games that I played with them. They make it easy on you, they're so good with the puck, moving the puck and making plays. Just have to try to be in the right spot for them. That helps."
