Carlson recorded two assists in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Red Wings. The Caps' blueliner leads all defenseman with 27 assists. Through 29 games, Carlson is averaging more than a point per game. He continues to reward his owners most every night and should be a lock to start if you own him.
Carlson recorded two assists -- one on the power play -- and two shots during Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Ducks. Carlson has only been held off the scoresheet once in the last eight games and has posted 11 assists during that span. Tied with Ottawa's Thomas Chabot with 31 points for the defenseman scoring lead, the 28-year-old is having a Norris Trophy-caliber season.
Carlson picked up two assists while logging 25:59 of ice time in Monday's 5-4 win over the Canadiens. Carlson has been fantastic this campaign, racking up five goals and 21 points in just 19 games. If he keeps up this pace, he'll easily surpass the career highs in goals (15) and assists (53) he set a season ago.
Carlson (lower body) will be in the lineup for Sunday's game against Arizona, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Carlson missed just one game with his lower-body injury, a 2-1 loss to Columbus. The 28-year-old will give Washington a huge boost on both ends of the ice. Carlson has five goals and 18 points in 14 games this season.
Carlson (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Coyotes, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports. A favorable home matchup against a road-weary Coyotes squad and the need to give youngsters Madison Bowey and Jonas Siegenthaler some playing time could move the Capitals to be cautious and hold out Carlson for a second-straight game, but fantasy owners will need to check back prior to puck drop for confirmation. The 28-year-old has five goals and 18 points in 14 games, so plug him into your lineups if he gets a sweater. However, those in daily formats may want to consider safer options given the uncertainty.
