Anthony Mantha scored his first goal of the season in Detroit's 3-2 loss to Florida on Sunday.

Mantha, who notched the famous 57 goals in 57 games season in Val D'Or in 2014, now has two points in four games this year and five points in 14 NHL games on his career. The 22-year-old is one to watch in case he discovers his scoring touch early.

Anthony Mantha picked up an assist in a 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday night.

He helped set up a power-play goal by Henrik Zetterberg in third period. The tally tied the game at 3-3, but Lightning winger Nikita Kucherov potted the game winner late to negate the need for overtime. Mantha was playing in his second contest since being called up from the minors.

Anthony Mantha will indeed make his season debut Saturday night against Montreal.

The 22-year-old phenom has 10 points in 10 games for AHL Grand Rapids so far this season, including eight goals. With just three points in 10 career NHL games, he hasn't quite put it together yet. But here goes yet another quality opportunity for the youngster.
Nov 12 - 4:02 PM

Anthony Mantha has been called up by the Detroit Red Wings.

Mantha has gotten off to a strong start in the AHL with eight goals and 10 points in just 10 contests. He's got a lot of offensive upside, but we'll have to wait and see how the Red Wings use him during this stint. It's also worth noting that his promotion corresponds with Andreas Athanasiou being put on the injured reserve list, but Athanasiou is only expected to miss a week or two, so Mantha might not be around for very long.

Anthony Mantha might not stay in the AHL for too long.

Mantha has gotten off to a hot start in the minors with five goals in three games and that's hasn't gone unnoticed by Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill. "I heard he played good, and that’s great for us," said coach Jeff Blashill. "The more guys down there playing good, the better off we are. We’re going to need more than the 13 forwards that are currently available to us during the course of the year. You know how the year goes between injuries. We like that he played good last night." Mantha just barely fell short of a roster spot with Detroit, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him called up the next time the Red Wings need a forward.

Anthony Mantha believes he is knocking on the door of an NHL spot and he won't stop moving forward just because he will start in the minors.

"I think I had a pretty good camp," Mantha said. "They wanted me to put some weight on, and that's what I did. I worked hard in the gym, on the ice and just did everything I could do to try and earn a spot. I'm not far off from the reality and I just have to keep working." He was demoted to Grand Rapids of the AHL on Tuesday and practiced with the team on Wednesday. Mantha should be back with Detroit at some point this season.
Oct 13 - 7:55 AM

Anthony Mantha has been assigned to Grand Rapids of the AHL.

He was competing with Andreas Athanasiou for a roster spot on the Red Wings. Mantha doesn't require waivers to be sent down, but it was expected that he would be on Detroit's roster this season. He should be the first player recalled if the Wings need a forward.
Oct 11 - 11:02 AM

Anthony Mantha scored his third goal of the preseason. This time it was the game winner in a 4-3 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Mantha reestablished the lead after the Wings gave up two goals in quick succession early in the third period. Mantha’s game winner was scored at the 11:57 minute mark with an assist from Jonathan Ericsson. Mantha spent most of 2015-16 with the AHL Grand Rapids Griffins where he scored 21 goals in 60 starts. In a limited role with the Wings, he scored twice in 10 games.
Oct 8 - 10:08 PM

Anthony Mantha has scored a goal in each of his preseason appearances.

The Red Wings have four exhibition games remaining and coach Jeff Blashill wanted to give Mantha five outings, so the winger will probably be busy this week. Mantha is looking to earn a roster spot in Detroit's top nine group.
Oct 4 - 10:00 AM

Anthony Mantha has been skating with Dylan Larkin and Andreas Athanasiou at training camp.

"There's obviously lots of speed and skill on the line," coach Jeff Blashill said. "You saw in the Red and White game, they made mistakes that ended up in our net a little bit, so they've got to eliminate those. But if they create more positives than negatives, that's what your looking for." Mantha scored in Wednesday's preseason game from Larkin and Athanasiou to give the Wings a 4-0 lead in an eventual 5-1 win over Boston. He can be sent to the minors without waivers, so he will have to prove that he is worthy of a roster spot during the exhibition schedule. Mantha is expected to play in five of the team's eight contests.

Anthony Mantha wants to be more intense this season.

Mantha played his first 10 NHL games last season, but he knows he needs to be better in certain areas if he wants to stick with the Wings this season. "I just need to be ready, be in my spot, play my game," said Mantha. "I need to be hard on pucks, score a few goals. I need to be a good net-front presence, win my one-on-one battles. It all comes down to being intense and wanting the puck more than I did in the past few years." It would be considered a disappointment if Mantha doesn't stick with the Wings out of training camp this fall.
Sep 17 - 1:03 PM

Anthony Mantha is looking to earn an opening game roster spot after getting into 10 games with Detroit in 2015-16.

Mantha had two goals and an assist in that 10-game span. He also scored 21 goals and 45 points in 60 AHL contests. "I just focus on those 10 games last year," Mantha said. "This summer, that was a motivation for me. The goal is to play more, to make the team. I had a great summer of training off-ice, on-ice. I've been skating with these guys for probably two or three weeks now. I'm ready for camp and I just can't wait to get started." He's not a sure thing to make the team, but if he does he'll be worth keeping an eye on.
Sep 16 - 9:18 AM

Anthony Mantha will have to stand out to land a roster spot with Detroit.

The Red Wings signed UFAs Frans Nielsen, Thomas Vanaek and Steve Ott as well as re-signed Drew Miller and Darren Helm, so it's tighter up front than it would have been. Mantha is exempt from waivers so he will have to impress for Detroit to make room for him.
