Playing career

Johansson started his senior playing career in his hometown team Linköpings HC in 1990. The club was then playing in Division 1 Södra, at the time one of Sweden's 2nd tier leagues, and Johansson who was appointed captain at an age of 18 would spend his first seven seasons there. In the 1996-97 season Linköpings HC was coached by Tommy Boustedt, and when his contract ended and he signed with the Elitserien team Västra Frölunda HC, he brought Johansson with him. Despite his relatively small stature Johansson adapted well to professional hockey, and over the following six seasons he developed into one of the league's most productive defencemen. After winning the Swedish championship with Västra Frölunda in 2003, Johansson signed a one-year contract with SCL Tigers of the Swiss Nationalliga A.

In March 2004, Linköpings HC, now in Elitserien, announced that Johansson had signed a 4-year contract and would make his, by the fans, long awaited return to the club. Once again wearing the captain's C, he led his team to results never accomplished before in the club's history in the following three seasons; a second spot in the league in 2004-05, to the playoff semifinals in 2006 and to the finals in 2007.

In June 2007 Johansson agreed a one year contract with NHL side Chicago Blackhawks. He played half the season with the Hawks that year before being traded to the Florida Panthers for a draft pick.

On July 24, 2008, he signed a contract with Atlant Mytishchi.

In April 2009, Johansson returned to Linköpings HC and was again chosen as captain.
