Carlson has been sidelined by a lower-body since February 24th, but it looks like he will return to the lineup tonight in New Jersey. Carlson’s status will not be known until head coach Barry Trotz meets with the media around 5 p.m. ET. Carlson has 31 points (6G / 25A) in 47 games this season.
Carlson will miss 3-4 weeks after undergoing a procedure on his lower-body injury.
Carlson has had a great season, but will miss an extended period of time for the second time this season. Carlson underwent a procedure on his unspecified lower-body injury and will keep him out for 3-4 weeks. He is expected to be moved to long-term IR but should be back before the playoffs.
Carlson will miss his eighth consecutive game with a lower-body injury, but he is not expected to be out much longer. Look for Carlson to be back in the lineup next week—his first chance will come on Thursday when the Capitals take on the Canucks.
Carlson was always considered doubtful for today’s matinee but now he has officially been ruled out of his seventh consecutive game. He remains questionable for Sunday’s contest.

The Capitals have placed John Carlson (lower-body) on IR; retroactive to December 28th.
Carlson will miss his sixth straight game with a lower-body injury on Thursday. Carlson’s movement to IR is retroactive, so he will be able to return to the lineup whenever he is healthy. They put him on IR to create a roster spot to officially sign Mike Richards.
Carlson (lower-body) will not play on Tuesday; could return on Thursday.

Carlson has missed the last four games, but skated in sweat pants prior to practice on Monday. His absence for practice and his lack of pads suggests that he isn’t close to returning and won’t play on Tuesday vs. the Bruins.
