John Carlson became the fifth Capitals defenseman ever to hit 400 points. He was very surprised when the Caps honored him.
Capitals defenseman John Carlson accomplished a bit of history against the Carolina Hurricanes, Tuesday.
After receiving a secondary assist on Nicklas Backstrom’s empty-net goal, Carlson tallied his 400th career point (90g, 310a), becoming only the fifth defenseman in Capitals history to reach the mark.
The Capitals saluted Carly immediately following the goal on the jumbotron. The best part is he had no idea he even accomplished anything!
