Anthony Mantha responded to criticism by playing a very strong game against New Jersey Saturday night.

He scored his 11th goal and registered his 20th point in 24 games. Red Wing coach Jeff Blashill, who called out Mantha on his poor play recently, had this to say about Mantha's effort Saturday night: "He was excellent. One of the best players on the ice." It looks like Mantha is out of the doghouse.

Anthony Mantha understands where Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill was coming from when he called Mantha out.

Blashill said after Wednesday's 6-2 loss that Mantha "has got to be way better." For his part, Mantha acknowledged that his game hasn't been where he wants it to be over his last three contests. "You can take it two ways," Mantha said. "You can take it the way, oh, he’s always on my back, or you can tell yourself, he cares about me and he wants me to be a better player. It’s for me to take the decision to get better and that’s what I’ll do." It's worth noting that Mantha has had a great season overall with 10 goals and 19 points in 22 games. He should bounce back from this rough patch.

Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill called out Anthony Mantha after Wednesday's 6-2 loss to Edmonton.

"Anthony Mantha has got to be way better. Way better. It's not OK to just be a passenger when you are given the opportunity to be an impact player," said Blashill. "He's not alone, but certainly he is a guy who — I said to him at the beginning of the year, 'for us to be great, you've got to be great.' He's gone through large stretches of being great, but he hasn't been great the last two games." He was disappointed with other players, but he is clearly looking for more from Mantha, who leads the team with 10 goals and has 19 points in 22 games.

Mantha made a great play to redirect Mike Green's point shot to bring the Red Wings to within one with less than four minutes remaining in the game.

The line of Mantha, Henrik Zetterberg and Gustav Nyquist was incredible, as they combined for 10 points in the game. Mantha now has two three-point games under his belt this season. The young forward is up to three goals and four assists in five games this season. His production will drop off at some point, but he should have consistent fantasy value in standard fantasy leagues.

Anthony Mantha scored a goal in Detroit's 4-2 loss to the Dallas Stars.

Mantha cut Dallas' lead to 3-2 with less than five minutes remaining in the third period, but that's as close as the Red Wings would come to tying the game.

He'll cool off at some point, but he's a solid fantasy add in deeper leagues right now.
Oct 10 - 11:50 PM

Anthony Mantha scored a goal and two assists in Detroit's 4-2 win over the Minnesota Wild.

The Red Wings came up with a victory in their first game at the new Little Caesars Arena.

The 23-year-old played in 60 NHL games with the Wings last season and he registered a solid 17 goals and 19 assists. The 20th overall pick in the 2013 draft has a nose for the net. He's fully capable of scoring between 20 and 25 goals this season. Dylan Larkin also found the back of the net for the Red Wings in the defeat. Both Mantha and Larkin will have fantasy value in deeper standard leagues.
Sep 19 - 9:57 PM

Anthony Mantha has been skating with Dylan Larkin and Justin Abdelkader during training camp.

"When he moves his feet on a regular basis, he is excellent," coach Jeff Blashill said. "He's just got such a skill package. He's 6-5, he can really skate, he can really shoot it, he's got offensive sense. It's hard to duplicate that." The Red Wings bench boss believes the trio of Mantha, Larkin and Abdelkader can produce offense this season if they put in the work.
