  • Capitals' John Carlson: Pending UFA weighing his options

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/13/18) Carlson, a pending unrestricted free agent, expressed his desire to remain with the Capitals, though he added, "there's more to it than that," Tarik El-Bashir of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Reading between the lines, Carlson knows that he'll be able to command a substantial pay raise following his efforts in bringing the franchise its first Stanley Cup win. The savvy veteran added five goals and 15 helpers over 24 games of the 2018 playoffs after securing career highs in assists (53) and points (68) during the regular season. He cashed in $3.96 million annually over the life of a six-year deal that will officially expire July 1.

    Capitals' John Carlson: Chips in assist as Caps hoist cup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/8/18) Carlson helped Washington clinch its first Stanley Cup victory in franchise history Thursday by chipping in a power-play helper in a 4-3 victory over the Golden Knights.

    Carlson was a major source of offense from the blue line throughout the postseason, with 12 of his 20 points in 24 games coming on the power play. He also led all defensemen with 68 regular-season points, so expect Carlson to net a hefty payday in unrestricted free agency, be it in Washington or elsewhere. Regardless of where he lands, the 28-year-old should offer plenty of value in both the real and fantasy rinks after helping guide his team to hockey's pinnacle.

    Capitals' John Carlson: Scores in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/29/18) Carlson scored a goal on three shots in Monday's Game 1 loss against Vegas.

    The Norris Trophy finalist has been a force from the point in these playoffs, leading all defenseman in points with 17 (four goals, 13 assists) in 20 games. His key role on the Capitals' dominant power-play unit was evident in the regular season, when he tied for 12th among all players in power-play points (32). This success has seamlessly transitioned to the playoffs, as 10 of his 17 points have come with the man advantage (three goals, seven assists).

    Capitals' John Carlson: Grabs two helpers in Game 2 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/13/18) Carlson recorded two assists in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Lightning in Game 2.

    He made his mark all over the scoresheet, tying Dmitry Orlov for the team lead with five shots while also chipping in two hits, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating. That's nothing new for Carlson, though, and the 28-year-old now has three goals and 14 points in 14 games this postseason with 48 shots on goal, 25 hits, 23 blocks and a plus-6 rating. Expect him to remain extremely productive as the series shifts to Washington for Game 3 on Tuesday.

    Capitals' John Carlson: League leader with eight assists so far

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/24/18) Carlson registered a power-play assist as the Capitals defeated the Blue Jackets in Game 6 of the conference quarterfinals and advanced to the next round Monday.

    The venerable defenseman wound up with one goal and a playoff-high eight assists in the opening round of the postseason, and he would've had an additional apple had it not been for a late scoring change following Game 4. His unselfish playing style has been huge for the Capitals, who will now have the daunting challenge of facing the two-time defending champions from Pittsburgh.
