Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Out Saturday
Mantha (lower body) will not play Saturday against the Panthers, Roman Stubbs of The Washington Post reports.
Mantha was a late scratch for Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Canadiens and will be unavailable for Saturday's home game against Florida. Now eliminated from playoff contention, the Capitals are likely to give the 28-year-old winger all the time he needs to heal -- especially given that he has generated only 11 goals and 27 points in 67 games while in the lineup this season. Beck Malenstyn is expected to play as a result of Mantha's absence.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Sidelined Thursday
Mantha (lower body) won't play Thursday versus the Canadiens.
The decision on Mantha's absence was made just before warmups, and the Capitals do not have a spare skater available on the roster, so they may be forced to play a man short. It's unclear if the winger will suit up Saturday versus the Panthers -- the Capitals have been eliminated from playoff contention and don't need to push anyone to play.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Pots goal Thursday
Mantha tallied a goal and added two shots during Thursday's 6-1 win over the Blackhawks.
Mantha stashed in a loose puck in front of the net to notch his 10th goal and 26th point in 62 games during the 2022-23 campaign. The 28-year-old has been in and out of the lineup all season due to a lack of offensive consistency which has taken a serious toll on his fantasy value.... See More ... See Less

Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Placed on injured reserve
Mantha (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.
Mantha was injured Tuesday in a game against his former Detroit teammates. The Capitals needed to make a move in order to activate Alex Ovechkin, who returned this week from Russia after the death of his father. Mantha has been a disappointment since he was dealt from the Red Wings two seasons ago -- he has nine goals and 24 points in 54 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Day-to-day with upper-body injury
Mantha (upper body) is regarded as day-to-day, Capitals coach Peter Laviolette told Tom Gulitti of NHL.com.
Mantha left Tuesday's game because of the injury, and it remains to be seen if he'll be available for Thursday's contest against Anaheim. He has nine goals and 24 points in 54 contests in 2022-23. Alex Ovechkin (personal) might be available Thursday, so he might simply draw into the lineup as Mantha draws out if it turns out that the 28-year-old is unavailable. If both Mantha and Ovechkin are unavailable to face Anaheim, then Nicolas Aube-Kubel might play after serving as a healthy scratch Tuesday.... See More ... See Less

Mantha (upper body) won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Red Wings.
It's unclear what caused Mantha's injury and subsequent exit from the contest. The winger's point drought is up to eight games, as he failed to get on the scoresheet before he was injured. Alex Ovechkin (personal) or Nicolas Aube-Kubel could enter the lineup if Mantha can't play Thursday versus the Ducks.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Ready to play Tuesday
Mantha (illness) is expected back in the lineup versus Carolina on Tuesday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
Mantha will provide some much-needed reinforcement as the Capitals will be without Alex Ovechkin (personal) and are still missing Tom Wilson (lower body). The 28-year-old Mantha is currently mired in an 11-game goal drought during which he recorded a meager 19 shots, though he did chip in a trio of helpers during that stretch.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Out with illness
Mantha will miss Sunday's game against San Jose due to a non-COVID illness, per Mike Vogel of the Capitals' official site.

Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Contributes helper
Mantha logged an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.
Mantha had been held off the scoresheet in his last four games, and he'd been scratched in four contests during that slump. The 28-year-old's helper came on a Conor Sheary tally in the second period. The Capitals were missing Nicklas Backstrom (illness) and T.J. Oshie (personal) for this game, which likely helped keep Mantha in the lineup. The winger has 24 points through 46 contests, surpassing his total from 37 outings last season.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Scratched Tuesday
Mantha did not take the ice for the pre-game warmup indicating he is a healthy scratch Tuesday against the Wild, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.
Mantha appears to be sitting again despite a recent two-game stint in the pressbox as a healthy scratch. The enigmatic winger has nine goals and 23 points in 44 games this season -- identical to his totals from a season ago in which he only managed to play 37 contests due to a shoulder injury -- but his fantasy value is plummeting due to the lack of a consistent role....

Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Scratched Sunday
Mantha will be a healthy scratch Sunday against the Blue Jackets, per Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic.
Mantha appears to be the odd man out with Tom Wilson and Nicklas Backstrom rejoining the Washington lineup. Mantha had been fairly productive of late, with three points (a goal and two assists) in his last four contests despite logging bottom-six minutes. The 28-year-old winger has nine goals and 14 assists through 42 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Pots goal Saturday
Mantha registered a goal while logging 14:13 of ice time during Saturday's 9-2 win over the Canadiens.
Mantha has been rather snakebit in the goal-scoring department this season and now has nine goals and 21 points in 39 games. The 28-year-old's fantasy upside for the remainder of the 2022-23 campaign should get a boost from the return of key offensive players like Nicklas Backstrom (hip), Tom Wilson (knee) and T.J. Oshie (upper body) in the coming weeks.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Pair of points in big win
Mantha scored a goal on three shots, added an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Blackhawks.
Mantha will go down as the player who set up Alex Ovechkin's 800th career tally, doing so in the third period before scoring a goal 2:25 later to pad the Capitals' lead. This gave Mantha a four-game point streak (two goals, four assists). He's bouncing back from a slow start to December, and he now has eight tallies, 10 assists, 57 shots on net, 30 hits and a minus-2 rating through 31 outings overall.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Hands out helper
Mantha produced an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Jets.
Mantha has points in three straight games (one goal, three assists). The 28-year-old winger has seen his power-play role disappear in the last couple of weeks, and he's seeing mainly third-line usage at even strength. For the season, the Quebec native has seven goals, nine assists, 54 shots, a minus-4 rating and 29 hits in 30 contests.... See More ... See Less
