Washington Capitals center prospect Connor McMichael scored two goals to earn his 45th goal of the season and eclipsed the 100-point milestone in the OHL’s London Knights’ 4-1 win against the Sarnia Sting on Friday night.

After McMichael received a pass from Columbus Blue Jackets prospect Liam Foudy, he put the puck through a Sting defenseman’s legs and sniped one to the top right corner on goaltender Ben Gaudreau. The goal stood as the eventual game-winner.

On his second goal, he picked up a pass from Luke Evangelista who was along the wall, waited, and sniped another to the corner.

He has a +30 rating and a 16.8% shooting percentage this season. This is the first time McMichael has hit the 100-point mark in a single season. His previous career-high in points was 72, which was set in 67 games last year.

The Capitals drafted McMichael, 19, 25th overall in the 2019 NHL Draft.
