Top Anthony Mantha News

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Garners helper in Game 1 win

    Mantha notched an assist and four hits in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Bruins in Game 1.

    Mantha set up Brenden Dillon on the Capitals' second goal. The 26-year-old Mantha produced eight points in 14 games after joining the Capitals at the trade deadline. He had 29 points in 56 outings overall. The Quebec native should remain in a top-six role with power-play time during the postseason.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Dishes helper Friday

    Mantha tallied an assist, two shots and a minus-1 rating during Friday's 4-2 loss to the Flyers.

    The helper snapped a five-game point drought for Mantha, giving him four goals and seven points in 12 games since joining the Capitals at the trade deadline. The 26-year-old winger has posted 15 goals and 28 points in 54 games this season.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Lights lamp again

    Mantha scored a power-play goal on his only shot and added a pair of hits Sunday in a 6-3 loss to Boston.

    The trade deadline acquisition found the back of the net for the third time in as many games for the Capitals, sending a wrist shot through a screen in the second period to put Washington on top 3-2. It was his 16th tally overall this season and extended his goal-scoring streak to four games. Mantha and linemates Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie combined for three goals and an assist Sunday, providing Washington with a dangerous second line that will be a difficult matchup for teams down the stretch.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Strikes again for new squad

    Mantha scored a goal on his only shot and had two hits Thursday in a 5-2 loss to Buffalo.

    The trade-deadline acquisition potted his second goal in as many games with the Capitals, redirecting a John Carlson feed during a delayed penalty to pull Washington to within 3-2 midway through the second period. The 26-year-old Mantha will take a three-game goal streak into Saturday's tilt in Philadelphia.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Productive first impression

    Mantha collected a goal and an assist with a team-leading six shots Tuesday in a 6-1 win over Philadelphia.

    Slotted on Washington's second line with Nicklas Backstrom (one goal, one assist) and T.J. Oshie (one assist), Mantha showed immediate chemistry with his new linemates in his first game since being acquired from Detroit, with the trio combining for 14 shots. Mantha received a drop-pass from Oshie midway through the second period and blew a wrister past Flyers goaltender Brian Elliott, giving the Capitals a 5-1 lead, and he also drew an assist on Tom Wilson's power-play tally in the opening frame. Managers who have Mantha rostered should see a nice bump in his production just in time for the fantasy playoffs.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Debuting on second line

    Mantha skated alongside Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie on the second line during Tuesday's morning skate, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Not surprisingly, Mantha looks as though he will assume a top-six role for Washington's Tuesday showdown with the Flyers. Fantasy managers should expect some growing pains as the coaching staff works to find the best fit for the 26-year-old, but Mantha's blend of size and skill gives him extra appeal now that he's surrounded by a deeper supporting cast.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Headlines blockbuster trade

    Mantha was acquired by the Capitals from the Red Wings on Monday in exchange for Jakub Vrana, Richard Panik, a 2021 first-round pick and a 2022 second-round pick, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    With Mantha locked up for another three seasons beyond 2020-21 at a relatively cost-controlled $5.7 million, the Capitals certainly had to pay a premium to bring him into the fold. In 42 games with Detroit this year, the 26-year-old winger notched 11 goals and 10 helpers and should be capable of reaching the 15-goal threshold for the fifth straight campaign. Mantha figures to immediately jump into a top-six role once available to suit up for Washington.

  • Red Wings' Anthony Mantha: Picks up 11th goal

    Mantha scored a goal on three shots in a 5-4 shootout win over Carolina on Saturday.

    Mantha was on his way to the Carolina net and got his stick on an Alex Biega point shot, putting the Red Wings on top 2-1 midway through the first period. The goal was Mantha's 11th of the season, giving him sole possession of the team lead.

  • Red Wings' Anthony Mantha: Two assists against Bolts

    Mantha notched two assists in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Lightning.

    He helped set up the Wings' third and fourth goals of the afternoon as they pulled away in the second period. Mantha has found a groove over the last month, piling up four goals and 10 points in the last 13 games, but on the season the 26-year-old has only 10 goals and 20 points in 39 contests.

  • Red Wings' Anthony Mantha: Hits 10-goal mark

    Mantha scored a goal on two shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Panthers on Thursday.

    Mantha gave the Red Wings a 2-1 lead 6:07 into the third period, breaking in on a 2-on-1 rush and roofing a shot past Florida netminder Chris Driedger. The goal was Mantha's 10th of the season, moving him into a tie for the team lead with center Robby Fabbri.
