John Carlson Bio

Carlson, a strong, two-way defenseman, was a key to the Washington Capitals' run to their first Stanley Cup championship in 2018.

After finishing the 2017-18 regular season with NHL career highs in goals (15), assists (53) and points (68), Carlson was even better during the postseason. He led all defensemen in the playoffs with 20 points (five goals, 15 assists) and had a plus-11 rating in 24 games.
