  • Red Wings' Anthony Mantha: Coach reveals power winger's scoring upside

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/23/18) Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said "there's no question" that Mantha has the potential to be a 30-goal scorer this coming season, the Detroit Free Press reports.

    The bench boss explained that Mantha -- who had 24 goals in 80 games last year -- could join the 30-goal club if he plays with more consistency, adding that his coaching staff will need to decide whether the towering winger will primarily be a net-front resident on the man advantage or be situated in scoring lanes. Either way, he should continue to see power-play ice time, but the latter seems more appealing from a fantasy perspective as he'd likely have more space to work. Last year, Monster Mantha recorded 91 wrist shots, 31 backhanders and snapshots apiece, 15 slap shots and 14 more that were tipped. The shot selection will drastically change if he's permitted to move around more.

    Red Wings' Anthony Mantha: Two-year contract worth $3.3 million annually

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/11/18) Mantha's new two-year contract with the Red Wings is worth $6.6 million, The Detroit News reports.

    There's not a ton invested in Mantha, but the Wings will get him for at least two more years with another chance to negotiate with his agent when he'll hit restricted free-agent status for the second time ahead of the 2020-21 season. A brawny net-front resident, Mantha has compiled 87 points (43 goals, 44 assists) over 150 games at the top level. As noted in this latest report, Wings coach Jeff Blashill hasn't been shy about publicly calling out the forward when he's not giving it his all on the ice, but then again, he was third on the team in points in 2017-18. Expect continued growth and maturation from Mantha; after all, he's only 23 years old.

    Red Wings' Anthony Mantha: Will work on toughness during offseason

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/11/18) Mantha will attend boxing classes this summer to "toughen his general approach to the game," The Detroit News reports.

    While Mantha is 6-foot-5, 225 pounds, he isn't all that physical, so perhaps the boxing tutorials will lead to him becoming every bit as imposing as he looks on the ice. It could also amount to more penalty minutes after the net-front resident picked up 53 and 52 of those respectively since the start of the 2016-17 campaign.

    Red Wings' Anthony Mantha: Caps off regular season with helper

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/7/18) Mantha registered a primary assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime home loss to the Islanders.

    It was nice to see a strong finish from the towering forward. Mantha wound up behind only speedster Dylan Larkin and captain Henrik Zetterberg in points among Red Wings with 24 goals and 24 assists through 80 games. Of course, it wasn't always smooth sailing for the lefty shooter wearing No. 39, as coach Jeff Blashill questioned Mantha's compete level at various points of the season. Still, he's only 23 years old with plenty of time to grow his game. A more consistent Mantha could launch himself closer to the elite group of fantasy forwards.

    Red Wings' Anthony Mantha: Finally finds the goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/29/18) Mantha scored a goal and had an assist in a 6-3 win over the Sabres on Thursday.

    Mantha is probably feeling a measure of relief, as he had been held without a goal for 12 games before this. The 23-year-old wasn't exactly contributing in other ways in that time, either, as he had only two assists. The Red Wings really need Mantha to show that he can be a part of this team's future as they rebuild. While he does have 24 goals this season, Detroit would surely like to see more consistency.
