John Carlson has been putting in extra work before the Capitals' practices lately.
Carlson has been working one-on-one with assistant coach Todd Reirden. It's seemed to pay off as Carlson has been more effective defensively over the last few weeks and remains one of the league's top defensemen offensively. He has four goals and 22 points in 30 games this season. "His growth has exponentially shown improvement," Reirden said. "I'm really happy with how his game's come along. He, by his choice, has made extra effort to work on different areas of his game. The work he's putting in with video now that he maybe hasn't done before, spending extra time with me and on his own doing that. I think his practice habits are quite different from going back to training camp. I think he's understanding the importance of trying to improve every day." Dec 18 - 11:43 AM
