  • Carlson scored a goal on five shots and added two power-play assists in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Rangers. He provided the primary helper on both of Alex Ovechkin's second-period goals, giving Carlson an incredible nine points (three goals, six assists) in six games to begin the season. Six of those nine points have come with the man advantage, however, as the Caps have benefited from some undisciplined play by the opposition -- Carlson is averaging more than six minutes of PP time a night so far, a pace that is bound to slow down sooner rather than later.

  • Carlson recorded a goal, an assist, a plus-3 rating and four shots during Thursday's 7-6 overtime loss to the Penguins. Carlson has four points in the first two games of the season and is well on his way to meeting the career-high 68 points he totaled last season. The 28-year-old should again be one of the top fantasy blueliners in 2018-19 so keep him in your lineups.

  • Carlson scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Wednesday's 7-0 win over the Bruins. The Caps scored four times with the man advantage in the rout, and not surprisingly Carlson played a big part in that impressive showing. He scored a career-high 32 power-play points last season, helping to fuel his breakout 68-point campaign, and the 28-year-old looks intent on proving those numbers were anything but a fluke.

  • Capitals' John Carlson: Will play Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Carlson (lower body) will play Tuesday against the Blues, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports. As they should, the Capitals are playing it careful with Carlson. After all, he's coming off a season where he potted 15 goals and 53 assists. The 28-year-old is key to Washington's defense, so any good news on his health is welcomed.

  • Capitals' John Carlson: May return Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Capitals are taking a cautious approach with Carlson's (lower body) recovery, but the "ultimate plan" is for the defender to play Tuesday against the Blues, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. This news rules Carlson out of Friday's matchup with Carolina but suggests he's likely close to being back to 100 percent. The 28-year-old American is still considered day-to-day, so there's no reason to believe his lower-body injury will linger into the regular season.
