The Columbus Blue Jackets did not recognize Ryan Johansen at any point in Sunday’s game, and the Nashville Predators forward didn’t seem thrilled about it afterwards.

“I was a little disappointed they didn’t put anything on the (video board) to say ‘thank you’ or anything like that,” Johansen told reporters including Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch. “I think we all know who made that call, but whatever.”

Johansen was playing his first game at Nationwide Arena since Jan. 5, 2016. He was traded by the Blue Jackets to the Predators for defenseman Seth Jones the following day.

The young forward held out in the summer of 2014 before signing a three-year contract extension with the Blue Jackets at the start of the season.

He was reportedly on the trade block for months before being sent to Nashville in the blockbuster one-for-one swap.

Somewhere, Columbus general manager Jarmo Kekalainen is turning his phone off.
