Washington Capitals forward prospect Aliaksei Protas is making good use of his interim assignment with Dinamo Minsk in the KHL. The 6’6″ center scored his second career KHL  goal against Vityaz on Tuesday.

Protas’ first career goal in the KHL came last week against Salavat. He would go far side from the top of the right circle for a power play goal.

Protas’ second goal came on Tuesday in the 36th minute against Vityak. The tally was also a power play goal, but this time was a result of good net front presence.

Protas has continued to center the 4th line and is getting consistent time on the power play, something that was likely a requirement of his loan. He has two goals in five games played (first game was forfeited by Jokerit).

Protas’ KHL stats to date:

Dinamo beat Vityaz 4-2.
