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.

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.

"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."
