John Carlson is going to become a very rich man this offseason.

A pending unrestricted free agent, Carlson recorded an assist on Devante Smith-Pelly's second-period goal, setting a Capitals record for points by a defenseman in a single postseason.

Carlson led all NHL blue-liners in points during the regular season with 68 and has produced at an even greater rate during the playoffs.

Hands down the best defenseman set to hit the open market this offseason, Carlson is playing the finest hockey of his life at an opportune time.
