Capitals' John Carlson: Scores game-winning goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson collected a goal and two assists, totaling three points in Wednesday's 4-3 win over Toronto.

Wednesday's win yielded Carlson's second three-point performance of the season, giving the defenseman 14 points through the campaign's first eight games, third most in the NHL. He's collected at least one assist in all but one game so far, and two of Carlson's three goals have turned out to be game-winners.

Capitals' John Carlson: Another helper Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson posted an assist, three blocked shots and two shots on goal in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche.

Carlson has been a virtually unstoppable force to start the year, recording two goals and 11 points in seven contests. He's only been held off the scoresheet once. The American blueliner also has 15 blocked shots and 14 shots on goal this season.

Capitals' John Carlson: Stays hot Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson tallied a goal, an assist, a plus-2 rating and two shots during Saturday's 4-1 win over the Stars.

Carlson is pacing NHL blueliners with two goals and 10 points in six games. The 29-year-old could push for the Norris Trophy if he can keep producing near point-per-game offense.

Capitals' John Carlson: Grabs NHL defenseman scoring lead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson had three assists with one shot on goal, one blocked shot and two PIM in a 6-5 loss to Nashville on Thursday.

Thursday's three-point performance gave Carlson sole possession of the NHL scoring lead among defensemen with eight points, including a league-best seven assists, through five games. He has hit the scoresheet in four of those contests, picking up right where he left off after last year's career-best 70-point season.

Capitals' John Carlson: Two points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson scored a goal and an assist while finishing plus-1 in a 4-3 overtime win against the Stars on Tuesday.

In addition to his two points, Carlson finished with four shots on goal and four blocked shots in 26:06 of ice time. He's posted five points and a plus-2 rating through four contests and already has a pair of multi-point efforts to his name in 2019-20. Next up for Carlson and the Caps is a road game in Nashville on Thursday.

Capitals' John Carlson: Notches power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson had a power-play assist and three blocked shots in Friday's 2-1 win over the Islanders.

Carlson has now produced three helpers through two games, tied with Lars Eller for the team lead. Carlson is coming off of his first 70-point campaign, and he's well on his way to matching it with this hot start. The Massachusetts native recorded 33 of his points last year on the man advantage -- Friday's helper was his first power-play point of the year.

Capitals' John Carlson: Sparks offense in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson notched two assists in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blues.

The defenseman was all over the scoresheet, adding a plus-2 rating, two hits and a blocked shot to his haul. Carlson recorded a helper on the Caps' first and last goals of the night, and after piling up a career-high 57 assists and 70 points in 2018-19, the 29-year-old wasted no time in getting the current season off to a fast start.

Capitals' John Carlson: Serves up two power-play assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson posted two power-play helpers, three shots and two PIM in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Hurricanes in Game 5.

Carlson last found himself on the scoresheet in Game 1, when he had a trio of helpers. For the series, the 29-year-old blueliner has five assists -- four coming with the man advantage -- and 18 shots on goal. He's also racked up 10 blocked shots and six PIM.

Capitals' John Carlson: Floods assist column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson finished with three assists Thursday, as the Capitals defeated Carolina 4-2 in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series.

After recording a career-high 33 power-play points this season, Thursday's win featured two more PP assists from Carlson, who was nothing short of dominant for 60 minutes. He and the Caps will now turn their focus to Saturday, as a win in Game 2 would give the defending champs a commanding 2-0 series lead.

Capitals' John Carlson: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson (rest) suited up in Monday's practice, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Carlson was scratched for the final regular-season game Saturday against the Islanders, and is expected to play in Game 1 of Washington's series against Carolina. The 29-year-old will likely be one of the top defenseman options for the postseason following a whopping 70 points (33 on the power play) in 80 games this year.

Capitals' John Carlson: Healthy scratch for rest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson will be rested for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Islanders, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

This opens up playing time for rookie Jonas Siegenthaler ahead of Washington's quarterfinal playoff series. Carlson caps (excuse the pun) off the regular season with a career-high 70 points (13 goals, 57 assists) to complement 33 power-play points through 80 games.

Capitals' John Carlson: Best season of career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson picked up two assists in Saturday's 6-3 win over Tampa Bay.

Those two helpers set a new career mark in points (69). And his plus-2 rating has moved Carlson to a plus-23 plateau, another career mark. He's in his prime and continues to be an outstanding fantasy play.

March 27, 2019 12:20 AM
Capitals' John Carlson: Big night off blue line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Hurricanes.

That's now three goals and 10 points in the last 11 games for Carlson, a surge that has him only one point shy of tying last season's career high of 68 points. He's got five games left to reach or blow past that mark, but the 29-year-old blueliner is also closing in on another personal best -- his plus-21 rating on the season ties the career high he set back in 2010-11.

March 17, 2019 12:56 AM
Capitals' John Carlson: Streak at six games, seven points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Lightning.

His point streak now stands at six games and seven points, including five helpers. Four of Carlson's seven points in that span have come on the power play. We all thought he played a little over his head last season, but Carlson is about to equal that effort. And despite that, he will likely be overlooked come nomination time. Brent Burns, Morgan Rielly and Mark Giordano are all but locks for Norris voters.

March 11, 2019 10:40 AM
Capitals' John Carlson: Extends point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson registered an assist and four hits during Sunday's 3-1 victory over the Jets.

With the helper, Carlson has registered a point in three consecutive games. The 28-year-old defender has also eclipsed the 50-assist mark in back-to-back seasons and has a strong resume for Norris Trophy consideration at the 2018-19 season's conclusion.

February 27, 2019 10:24 AM
Capitals' John Carlson: Nets power-play goal Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson registered a power-play goal, a plus-2 rating and two blocked shots during Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Senators.

Carlson continues his hot streak with two goals and eight points in the last seven games. The 28-year-old defender has posted consecutive 10-goal seasons and is on pace to break the 70-point barrier if he can stay healthy and productive, placing him in the top tier among fantasy defensemen.

February 25, 2019 01:36 PM
Capitals' John Carlson: Stays hot with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson recorded an assist and six shots during Sunday's 6-5 overtime win over the Rangers.

Carlson has accrued a goal and seven points -- including four power-play points -- over his last six games. The 29-year-old defender could eclipse a career-high 68 points set in 2017-18 if he can stay hot for the remainder of the season, so keep rolling him out regularly.

February 19, 2019 01:12 AM
Capitals' John Carlson: Helps on man advantage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson assisted on both of Alex Ovechkin's power-play goals in a 3-2 win over the Kings on Monday.

Carlson has accumulated nine goals and 45 helpers in 59 games, including one goal and four assists during a three-game trip through California. He also has 24 power-play points. Carlson filled his stat line with three shots on goal and three blocked shots in the contest.

February 18, 2019 02:20 AM
Capitals' John Carlson: Earns two points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson factored into both Capitals goals in a 5-2 loss to the Ducks on Sunday.

Carlson had an assist on Alex Ovechkin's opening tally, and then scored an unassisted goal of his own to retie the game at 2-2 in the second period. Carlson has 52 points and a plus-17 rating in 58 games this season, as well as 132 shots. He could have a case for the Norris Trophy by season's end.

February 15, 2019 11:44 AM
Capitals' John Carlson: Notches 50th point Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson tallied an assist and four blocked shots while logging 22:41 of ice time during Thursday's 5-1 win over the Sharks.

Carlson has just three helpers in eight games since the All-Star break. However, the 29-year-old defender is in the top tier of fantasy blueliners with 50 points in 57 games, so expect more productive nights than quiet ones for the balance of 2018-19.
