John Carlson etches his name in the Caps' history books

Tim Tucker   ·   23 février 2020
We all knew John Carlson was good, but just how good is a little staggering. Carlson is now the Washington Capitals' franchise leader for points by a defenseman, and he did it in much less time than the previous record holder.

With an assist in Sunday's 5-3 win over Pittsburgh, Carlson has 475 points with the Caps, one more than the previous top defenceman for the franchise, Calle Johansson. It took Carlson 750 games to get there, 233 fewer than Johanssson.

In a classy move, Johansson recorded a message for Carlson that was played at Capitol One Arena during the game.



Carlson has played his entire NHL career with Washington since being drafted in the first round, 27th overall, in 2008.
