13 - Number of days remaining until the start of the Capitals’ 2019-20 season. But it’s also...

The number of goals scored by John Carlson last season, the second-highest total of his career (behind only the 15 goals he scored a year earlier). Since making his NHL debut in 2009-10, Carlson has racked up 90 goals and an impressive 403 points, ranking 15th and 13th respectively among all NHL defensemen over that span.

Carlson has cracked double digits in goals in four of his last six seasons, one of just 18 defensemen with at least as many 10+ goal seasons over that span.
