Anthony Mantha News
Washington Capitals forward Anthony Mantha (ear) and defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk (lower body) are both expected to return from injury for Saturday's contest against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Mantha has missed the last three games after suffering a ruptured left ear drum after being struck by a shot in a Nov. 8 overtime loss to the Florida Panthers, while van Riemsdyk has missed the last four contests with a lower-body injury sustained in a game against the Blue Jackets on Nov. 4. The 29-year-old Mantha has three goals and four points in 10 games but notched a pair of goals against the Panthers before being injured. For his part, the defense-first van Riemsdyk has recorded one assist in 10 games with 19 blocked shots as part of his 17:35 of average ice time per game.
Washington Capitals forward Anthony Mantha could return to the lineup on Saturday after missing the last three games with a ruptured ear drum suffered in a Nov. 8 overtime loss versus the Florida Panthers. The veteran said he needed four-to-five stitches in his ear and further testing at the hospital ruled out any further damage. It's been an uneven season for the former first-round pick who has notched three goals and four points in 10 games while seeing his ice time dip to just 12:43 per game, far below his 16:33 career average. It's unclear where he will slot in upon his return but he remains on the outside of the fantasy picture looking in on a Capitals team that ranks 30th in overall offense.
Washington Capitals forward Anthony Mantha will not travel with the club for their upcoming two-game road trip after being hit in the left ear with a shot in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Panthers. He is listed as day-to-day. It's been a disappointing start for both the Capitals and Mantha who has been a rumored trade candidate during his fourth full season with the Capitals. The 29-year-old has three goals and four points across 10 games while seeing his average ice time dip to just 12:43, his lowest total since posting an 11:42 mark in his 10-game NHL debut in the 2015-16 season. The club will likely call up a forward to replace Mantha for upcoming road contests against the Devils and Islanders.
Washington Capitals right wing Anthony Mantha had a night full of mixed emotions against Florida on Wednesday, scoring twice but also suffering an upper-body injury. Mantha's two strikes, which both came in even-strength situations, kept the Capitals in the game before the team eventually went 4-3 down in overtime. The action for Mantha ended in the third period when he was struck by a puck and left the ice bleeding. With Wednesday's effort, the 29-year-old upped his points tally for the season to four. Mantha has struggled to find his game in D.C., and the 2023-24 is off to a pretty ugly start as well for him.
