Anthony Mantha News
Washinton Capitals winger Anthony Mantha (upper body) has been placed on Injured Reserve and won't play Thursday against Anaheim. He was injured last time out against Detroit and will now be unavailable for a bit. Mantha has gone eight straight games without a point, and it hasn't been easy for him throughout the campaign, as the 28-year-old has tallied only nine goals and 15 assists in 54 games with a minus-seven rating. Alex Ovechkin (personal) is ready to play again after a four-game absence and will replace Mantha in the lineup.
Washington Capitals winger Anthony Mantha exited Tuesday's game against Detroit with an upper-body injury. He finished with only 8:18 of ice time and couldn't generate any offense for an eight consecutive game. Washington should give an update on his status prior to Thursday's meeting with Anaheim. Mantha's form has fallen off the cliff this season, as he's picked up only 24 points in 52 games. He hasn't been able to nail down a spot in the top six, and Mantha has even been a healthy scratch over the course of the season.
Washington Capitals winger Anthony Mantha will come out of the press box and rejoin the lineup for Saturday's battle against Philadelphia. He has been one of the odd men out after Nicklas Backstrom and Tom Wilson were able to make their season debuts. However, after missing two games, Mantha will now jump back into the lineup and it looks like Dylan Strome is getting scratched. Mantha has had some good spells, and 23 points in 42 games isn't a horrible return, but he is capable of doing much better and maybe the short stint on the sidelines will help him to return to form. He will skate with Nic Dowd and T.J. Oshie in even-strength situations and should also log time on the second power-play unit.
Washington Capitals winger Anthony Mantha will miss his first game of the season on Sunday against Columbus, with head coach Peter Laviolette deciding to make him a healthy scratch for the contest. He will be one of the players to make way for Tom Wilson (knee) and Nicklas Backstrom (hip), who are both gearing up for their season debuts. Mantha's ice time has dropped with each passing month this season and he couldn't even get to the 10-minute mark last time out against Nashville. It's not been a pleasant campaign for him, with only nine goals and 23 points registered in 42 outings. Mantha will have his first chance to return Tuesday versus Philadelphia.
