  • Carlson had an assist and 10 shots during Friday's 4-3 overtime win against the Red Wings. Aided by 6:17 in power-play time, the 27-year-old defenseman now has five assists in eight games to start the season. Quarterbacking the top power-play unit and being relied on to do heavy lifting offensively with Matt Niskanen (upper body) on the shelf, the first-round pick from the 2008 NHL Entry Draft projects to remain a strong fantasy asset. It's worth noting that Carlson has added motivation to pad his resume before becoming an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

  • Capitals' John Carlson: Picks up helper Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Carlson had an assist in Saturday's 6-1 rout over the Canadiens. The 27-year-old defenseman has been busy in the first two games with four shots while averaging 25:27 of ice time. Manning the top power-play unit on a Washington team with a shallower defense corps compared to last season, the U.S. Olympian could have a monster season as he polishes his resume for a contract extension. Play him with confidence every night.

  • Carlson is being protected from the expansion draft, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. The 2008 first-round pick has regressed a bit since his 55 point 2014-15 season. Still, 37 points in 72 games this season show the 27-year-old still holds value. Carlson will easily be in the top-four rotation as he heads into the last year of his contract.

    By RotoWire Staff

    Carlson (lower body) is in the lineup for Thursday's Game 1 against the Maple Leafs, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports. After sitting out the final four games of the regular season, Carlson will return to his place on Washington's top defensive pairing as the team begins its run for the Stanley Cup. The 27-year-old blueliner finished the campaign with just one point in his last seven games, but the defensive presence he provides is of immense value to the Capitals.
