Anthony Mantha scored a goal and two assists in Friday's 6-3 win over the Vegas Golden Knights.
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. The young winger is off to a great start, as he's already collected two goals and four points in Detroit's first four games. He'll cool off at some point, but he's a solid fantasy add in deeper leagues right now.

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. Mantha showed some nice potential last season, and he certainly looked ready to start the 2017-18 season tonight. He opened the scoring with a power play goal in the second period before setting up goals by Dylan Larkin (power play) and Martin Frk. Mantha finished the game with two shots on goal and an even rating in 13:18 of ice time.

Anthony Mantha picked up a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Boston Bruins.

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.

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.

Expectations are high for Anthony Mantha going into training camp.

Coach Jeff Blashill will give the young forward opportunities to be a key offensive player this season. "We need Anthony to be a real good player. Anthony is going to get a chance to play real big minutes for us, so he has got to take those minutes and turn them into lots of production in a winning way," Blashill said. "I've got great belief he can. He's lost some old habits where he didn't skate quite as much and now he is skating way more on a regular basis. When Anthony Mantha moves his feet and skates and attacks the game, he is an elite player. The key is to get to do it as consistent as possible. But he is going to get an opportunity to be a real impact player."

Anthony Mantha feels he learned a great deal from his first full NHL season.

He wants to develop better habits and be more consistent after he registered 17 goals and 36 points in 60 games. "I know the way I play. I know my best games what they are. I know my bad games what they are," said Mantha. "So for me, it's just something I need to focus on and always have good or great games." He intends to continue to learn next season.

Despite suffering a finger injury during a fight, Anthony Mantha says he isn't going to stop dropping the gloves.

Mantha suffered a season-ending injury in late March after he dropped the gloves with Tampa Bay's Luke Witkowski, but he won't let that alter the way he plays. "I don’t like fighting, (and) I don’t know why I fought so that much this year," said Mantha. "But things happen and it happens quick. (I’m) not really (going) change my style of play. But I just know I can stand up for myself and that’s what I do." He finished the season with 17 goals and 36 points in 60 games this season. If he's healthy, expect those numbers to climb next season.

Anthony Mantha will be able to avoid surgery on his fractured finger.

Anthony Mantha feels he learned his lesson from being a healthy scratch twice earlier this month.

"He just wants me to bring it every night, and that is, basically, what I need to learn," Mantha said referring to coach Jeff Blashill. "We have been working on it for years now, even when I was playing in (Grand Rapids), we were talking about it. It's just something that needs to come into my mind and be an automatic instinct for me to move my feet as hard as I can and do the little details." Mantha didn't have a point in six outings prior to scoring the game winner against Montreal on Tuesday night.
Mar 23 - 8:28 AM

Anthony Mantha scored the game-winning goal in Tuesday's 2-1 OT win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Mantha picked up the puck right outside the Montreal blue line before leaving Alex Galchenyuk in the dust and beating Al Montoya with a great shot. He finished the game with a game-high seven shots on goal. He's up to 15 goals and 19 assists in 55 games this season.
Mar 21 - 10:46 PM

Anthony Mantha will return from the press box on Wednesday night.

He has been a healthy scratch for the past two games, but will play against Colorado. "I think he'll respond great. Doesn't mean he'll play great," coach Jeff Blashill said. "It means, in the long term, his long-term approach is that he wants to be a very good hockey player. So I think, in the end, he'll get as close as possible to reaching his ceiling." Mantha has 14 goals and 33 points in 50 games this season. He hasn't gone more than two games without a point since late January.
Mar 14 - 4:15 PM

The Red Wings will be without Anthony Mantha for the second straight game as a healthy scratch on Sunday against the Rangers.

Through 50 games this season the talented winger has posted 14 goals and 33 points along with 32 blocks and 42 hits. "I'm obviously not happy about sitting out, but he's the coach," Mantha said. "I just have to come back when I get a chance and try to prove that I'm never going to sit again. Obviously, this is hard."
