John Carlson has yet to score this season.
The offensive defenseman has played 23 games with nine assists thus far but is second on the Capitals in shots on goal with 57. He had eight goals and 39 points in only 56 games last season so his lack of production is a concern to his fantasy owners. "Carly is such a talent, and I think this one of the few times in Carly’s career, which is sort of good for Carly in fact, it’s not coming really easy for him," coach Barry Trotz said. "He got off to a slow start, a little bit nicked up through the World Cup and the start of our season, and now he’s playing catch-up. Now, maybe you’re not having the success that you’ve had in the past. I don’t want to say doubt creeps in, but you start to look for different ways to have success and different ways to do that. Sometimes, as I said, the doubt creeps in or you get frustrated. When you’re frustrated, it’s just not a good energy." Dec 5 - 10:00 AM
