Top Anthony Mantha News

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Deals assist Friday

    Mantha posted an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Panthers in Game 6.

    Mantha didn't score in the six-game series, but he was able to pick up four helpers from a middle-six role. The 27-year-old winger added 16 shots on net, 23 hits, 13 PIM and a minus-3 rating. He had 23 points in 37 regular-season outings after missing a large chunk of the campaign due to a shoulder injury.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Two-apple game Saturday

    Mantha picked two apples Saturday in a 6-1 win over the Panthers in Game 3.

    The oft-injured Mantha has always had tantalizing talent, but his many band-aids have dulled his impact. Right now, he's playing effective hockey and has helped the Caps move into a 2-1 lead over the Presidents' Trophy winners. Mantha has three assists in three games this postseason.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Massive four-point night

    Mantha scored two goals and added two assists in Saturday's 8-4 win over Montreal.

    The goals, which came 34 seconds apart in the second period while the teams were playing 4-on-4, snapped an eight-game goal drought. Both were breakaways. Mantha has seven points (two goals, five assists) in his last four games and could deliver sneaky value as the season closes.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Pots goal Friday

    Mantha tallied a goal and ripped five shots during Friday's 4-3 shootout win over the Sabres.

    Mantha has been quite productive since returning from a 45-game absence due to a shoulder injury, with five goals and seven points in his last 11 games. Locked into a top-six role with plenty of upside in a high-octane offense, Mantha is a worthwhile fantasy commodity in any format.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Lights lamp twice against Jackets

    Mantha scored two goals in Thursday's 7-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Both the 27-year-old's tallies came in the first period, helping the Capitals jump out to a 3-0 lead in the rout. Mantha missed four months of action due to shoulder surgery and needed a couple games to shake off his rust, but he seems back in form now with four goals and five points over the last five games.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Sets up opening tally

    Mantha notched an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers.

    Mantha set up Nicklas Backstrom just 2:17 into the second period to open the scoring. This was Mantha's second point in as many games as he appears to be getting more comfortable after a long layoff following shoulder surgery in November. The winger has eight points, 25 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through 14 contests.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Lights lamp in win

    Mantha scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Flames.

    This was Mantha's first goal in three games since he returned from a nearly four-month-long absence due to shoulder surgery. He tied the game at 3-3 at 8:21 of the third period with a shot from close range. The winger has seven points, 22 shots on net and a plus-1 rating in 13 appearances this season. He's seen second-line usage since his return, and there's little risk he'll slip down the lineup.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Activated off injured reserve

    Mantha (shoulder) has been removed from injured reserve, clearing the way for him to play in Thursday's clash with Carolina, Tom Gulitti of reports.

    Mantha has been out of action since Nov. 4 against the Panthers, a stretch of 45 games on injured reserve due to his shoulder issue. With the 27-year-old winger back in action, he is set to take on a top-six role in addition to linking up with the No. 2 power-play unit.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Could return Thursday

    Mantha (shoulder) hasn't been ruled out versus the Hurricanes on Thursday, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Coach Peter Laviolette didn't confirm that Mantha would be an option against Carolina but the fact that he wouldn't rule him out is at least a step in the right direction. Getting Mantha back in the lineup would certainly bolster the Caps' forward complement considering both Joe Snively (upper body) and Carl Hagelin (eye) are facing extended absences. If Mantha is cleared to play, he will first need to be activated off long-term injured reserve.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Returns to practice

    Mantha (shoulder) was cleared for contact in Monday's practice, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Mantha still does not have a clear timeline for recovery, but Monday marked his first practice with contact since undergoing surgery Nov. 5. He has tallied six points over 10 appearances this season. The 27-year-old has missed the last 44 games while dealing with a shoulder injury and is still anticipated to return before the end of the regular season.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Still no timeline

    Mantha (shoulder) still doesn't have a timeline for a return, but head coach Peter Laviolette said there's hope Mantha will be able to return before the end of the regular season, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Mantha still "has a long road ahead" and, as mentioned, doesn't have a return timeline, so there isn't much to latch onto here for fantasy managers hoping to roster the 27-year-old. On the bright side, the regular season runs all the way until the end of April this year, giving Mantha some extra time to return ahead of the playoffs (if Washington qualifies).

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Moved to LTIR

    Mantha (shoulder) was formally moved to long-term injured reserve Saturday, Kevin Allen of USA Today reports.

    This move comes as no surprise given that Mantha underwent surgery Friday. He's currently without a timetable for return after producing six points in 10 games, but it's probably safe to assume he'll be out for at least a month or two.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Undergoes surgery

    Mantha underwent successful shoulder surgery Friday and will be out indefinitely, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    News of Mantha's shoulder surgery came just after it was announced he had been placed on injured reserve Friday. Mantha collided with defenseman John Carlson in the second period of Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Panthers and did not return. The 27-year-old -- who has posted two goals and four assists in 10 games -- is expected to be out for a while, compounding a significant injury problem for a Capitals team already without Nicklas Backstrom (hip) and T.J. Oshie (lower body).

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Underwent shoulder surgery

    Mantha underwent shoulder surgery after Thursday's game and is out indefinitely.

    The nature of the surgery is unclear, as is an expected return date for the big winger. More details about Mantha and his recovery should become available in the coming weeks.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Goes on IR

    The Capitals placed Mantha (upper body) on injured reserve Friday.

    It's unclear exactly how long Mantha will be sidelined, but the IR designation guarantees he'll miss at least a week. The second-line forward has tallied two goals and four assists through 10 games this season.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Under evaluation for injury

    Mantha (upper body) exited Thursday's game versus the Panthers and is under evaluation for the injury, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

    Mantha collided with teammate John Carlson in the second period and didn't play after that. There likely won't be an update on Mantha's status after the contest, but more information should be known before Saturday's game against the Flyers.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Collects assist Monday

    Mantha tallied an assist and added two shots during Monday's 7-5 win over the Senators.

    Mantha now has two goals and four points in six games in his first full season with the Capitals. The 27-year-old has struggled to generate much shot volume in the early going, but Mantha's goal-scoring upside is sure to benefit from the eventual return of Nicklas Backstrom (hip), so fantasy managers can expect better days ahead for the Quebec native.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Collects milestone goal

    Mantha scored a goal on five shots and had two PIM in Tuesday's 6-3 win over Colorado. He also chipped in with three blocks.

    Mantha gave the Capitals a 3-2 lead with 5:13 left in the second period, receiving a Lars Eller feed on the doorstep and tucking it past Colorado netminder Darcy Kuemper. It was the first goal of the season for Mantha and the 100th of his career. A trade-deadline acquisition last year from Detroit, Mantha produced four goals and four assists in his first 14 games as a Capital and should be poised for a productive campaign with a full season of an improved supporting cast.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Chips in helper

    Mantha tallied a power-play assist, two shots and two hits during Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Rangers.

    Mantha is skating with the big dogs on the top power-play unit while working alongside Lars Eller and Daniel Sprong on the second line at even strength. The Capitals paid a hefty price tag to acquire the 27-year-old from the Red Wings at last season's trade deadline, and he will be counted on to shore up the offense while Nicklas Backstrom (hip) is on the injured list. Needless to say, once the latter returns, Mantha's production should get a boost.
