Off The Post: John Carlson Hockey Cards, Washington Capitals – A former first round pick (27th overall) of the Washington Capitals in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, John Carlson has spent his entire 13-year career in DC. Carlson has been a steady, consistent force on the blueline, who the Capitals rely on for his leadership and offensive production.
A two-time All-Star, the 6-foot-3, 215-pound Natick, Massachusetts native made his NHL debut in November 2009. Since that time, Carlson and the Capitals made the playoffs every year, except for the 2013-14 season. All of their playoff appearances finally paid off during the 2017-18 season when the Capitals hoisted the Stanley Cup for the first time in their history.
With the Stanley Cup Championship being the highlight of his career, Carlson has had some spectacular statistical campaigns. Ironically, the best statistical stretch of his career began during the year the Capitals won the Stanley Cup Championship (2017-18) through the 2019-20 seasons. During that stretch, Carlson played in 231 games and recorded 43 goals and 170 assists (213 points).
So far this season, Carlson has played very well, and through 55 games, he’s netted 10 goals and dished out 37 assists. Currently, Carlson’s 47 points are seventh most among defensemen.
In a recent 2-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on February 26th, Carlson discussed the loss and bad record the Capitals have had in the second half of the season. The audio of Carlson was captured by our own Russ Cohen.
