John Carlson joins elite company en route to a historical season

4 décembre 2019
In a league where a puck moving, point producing defenceman is on every team's wish list, it cannot be understated just how important Washington Capitals defenseman John Carlson truly is. Carlson is on pace to have a historical season. Are you ready for this? Carlson is currently on pace to finish with 113 points.


He is the first defenceman to reach the 40 point plateau in 29 or fewer games since Al MacInnis did it in the 1990-91 season. Aside from Carlson and MacInnis only 3 other defencemen in NHL history have accomplished this feat. Bobby Orr (6), Denis Potvin (2), and Paul Coffey who did it once.

The 29 year old Carlson is in his 11th NHL season. The 27th overall pick in the 2008 NHL entry draft currently sits alone as the league’s only 40 point D-man so far this year.

Carlson picked up 3 points in the 1st period against the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night. His team is currently riding a 4 game winning streak heading into Wednesday night's tilt against the Los Angeles Kings.
