Washington Capitals forward prospect Connor McMichael recorded two goals and an assist in the London Knights’ 7-1 win over the Soo Greyhounds on Sunday afternoon, his fifth goal in two games, to continue his dominant campaign. He recorded a hat trick in the Knights’ 6-5 loss to the Saginaw Spirit on Saturday, his fourth hat trick of the season.

He was at the crease after scrambling with a Greyhounds’ defender to tuck in a loose puck on the backhand after one of his teammates let a shot go from the point to open the scoring for the Knights and the goaltender let it through his five-hole.

McMichael’s second goal was pretty. He got the puck from one of his teammates after a Greyhounds’ turnover and put the puck threw his own legs and roofed it under the cross-bar.

McMichael, the Capitals’ first-round (No. 25 overall) pick in the NHL Draft last summer, is now up to 30 goals, 66 points, and a +19 rating in just 30 games this season. He is tied for fourth in the OHL in points and only one behind the league-lead in goals.

    If Dame Fortune smiles on us we’ll get to witness his genius in a Caps’ uni on a nightly basis for the next 12 to 15 years…

    It can’t happen quickly enough for me…
