Manson (undisclosed) won't play Wednesday against Calgary and likely won't be available for Friday's season finale against LA, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports. It appears as though Manson's season has almost certainly come to an end. If that ends up being the case, the 27-year-old blueliner will finish the campaign having totaled a disappointing 16 points in 74 contests. The 6-foot-3 American will undoubtedly be looking to bounce back offensively in 2019-20.
Manson -- who exited Tuesday's game against the Canucks late following a hit from Tanner Pearson -- is visiting with a doctor, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports. With Manson checking in with doctors, it seems likely that he will be unavailable for both Friday and Saturday's contests in Canada. We'll update the blueliner's status, but, barring a quick turnaround, look for Jake Dotchin to serve as the sixth defenseman on the two-game trip.
Manson picked up an assist, four hits and three shots in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Predators. Manson has an assist in four of his last eight games, while delivering 23 hits in that span. The physical defender is up to three goals and 12 apples in 67 appearances this year, with his fantasy relevance limited mostly to deeper formats.
Manson provided an assist and went plus-3 in Friday's 8-2 win over the Canadiens. Manson also tossed four hits and blocked a pair of shots through 22:20 of ice time. Manson has 14 points (three goals, 11 helpers) in 65 appearances this season, as well as 158 hits. He'll likely finish the year around 20 points, though the physicality could make him worth a roster spot in deeper formats.
Manson picked up a helper in a 3-1 win over the Coyotes on Tuesday. He added three hits and two blocked shots in the contest. Manson has seen his production dip drastically from the 37 points he accumulated last season, as he now has 13 points in 63 games. He does have 14 hits in his last five games, giving him 153 for the year, but that alone is likely not enough to help his fantasy value.
