Brutal Update On Washington Capitals' John Carlson


According to Tarik El-Bashir, the Washington Capitals will be without John Carlson for months instead of weeks. 

This is certainly bad news for the Caps, as Carlson is one of their most important players. The 32-year-old defenseman was hit in the side of the head by a shot, and now we have a better understanding of how long he will be out because of it.

It has been another solid year for Carlson offensively this campaign, as he has eight goals and 21 points in 30 contests.
