While right wing Garnet Hathaway was not signed to a four-year contract in the free agency in the summer of 2019 for superior offensive skills, the 28-year forward has chipped in offensively at times in his first season with the Washington Capitals. In the second period of the Capitals’ Wednesday night matchup against the Philadelphia Flyers, Hathaway added another goal on the end of a beautiful passing sequence.

With the Cap trailing the Flyers 3-1, Hathaway, Capitals defenseman Brenden Dillon capitalized on a turnover in the nuetral by passing it to Nic Dowd, who backhanded a pass behind to Hathaway, who carried the puck into the offensive zone, before dishing across to Tom Wilson, who threw it back to Hathaway, who kicked the puck from skate-to-stick before roofing the puck over the shoulder of Flyers netminder Brian Elliott.

The goal marks Hathaway’s eighth of the 2019-20 season, bringing him within four of surpassing his career-high of 11, set a season ago with the Calgary Flames. Hathaway now has 14 points on the season, and two goals in his last four games played.
