Another of the Western Bulldogs' rookie list success stories, Johannisen made his debut in Bulldogs colours in 2012.
The Western Australian recruit was initially drafted to the Bulldogs through the 2010 AFL Rookie Draft with selection 39.
Blessed with electric speed, Johannisen has forged a reputation as one of the league's most exciting, attacking half-backs. After playing just 27 games in his first three seasons, Johannisen flourished under coach Luke Beveridge playing in 20 games in 2016, averaging 20 disposals.
While a hamstring tendon injury early in the 2016 disrupted his eye-catching start to the year, Johannisen returned to play the last 13 games of the season, and spearhead the Club's charge through September.
Johannisen's game breaking ability was on full display on Grand Final day, as he amassed 33 disposals on his way to winning the Norm Smith Medal.
A VFL premiership player with the Footscray Bulldogs in 2014, Johannisen became an AFL Premiership player in 2016.
Since 2017, Johannisen hasn't played fewer than 20 senior games and consolidated his place as one of the league's most dynamic half-backs.
After missing the first three rounds of the 2019 season with an ankle injury, Jason Johannisen played the remaining 20 games to again be a key player for the Bulldogs.
One of the team’s leaders, Johannisen provided his customary dash and dare off the half back flank.
The 26-year-old was among the team’s top three for effective kicks and metres gained per game, and top six for both inside-50s and rebound 50s.
Johannisen is contracted until the end of the 2022 season.
