Quick Hits: The Career Best Edition
In Red Wings Land
By the Numbers: Anthony Mantha | DetroitRedWings.com
48 -- Mantha finished with 48 points (25-23-48) in 67 games. That tied Mantha’s career best, set in 2017-18. But in that season, Mantha needed 80 games to reach that mark.
If I was a betting man (I’m not), I’d wager a decent amount of money that Anthony Mantha will top his career best 48 points this upcoming season. He’s going to hit the 30-goal mark and serve up plenty of spicy meatballs for the Red Wings.
