251 - Number of Capitals skaters who scored fewer goals in their careers with Washington than Anthony Mantha has already tallied (including the current team’s entire blue line outside of John Carlson and Dmitry Orlov). The leader in games played from that list? Kevin “Killer” Kaminski, who scored three times in 132 games for the Caps. The leader in shots on goal? Nick Jensen (two goals), with 135. And the leader in points? You’re not going to want to hear this name, but... it’s Martin Erat (two goals, 25 assists in 62 games played).

Four games into his career, Mantha currently ranks 244th (tied) in goals in franchise history.
