Capitals' Connor McMichael: Dishes helper WednesdayNovember 25, 2021 | 07:11 AM
McMichael tallied an assist while logging 11:09 of ice time during Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Canadiens. McMichael has posted two goals and seven points in 18 games while averaging 12:13 of ice time in a season where he has been thrust into a prominent role due to an enduring injury situation regarding Washington's centers -- most notably Nicklas Backstrom (hip). The 20-year-old has a bright NHL future and is worth a gander in most formats as long as he's in a top-six role, but McMichael is likely headed back to the minors once Washington's injury situation improves.
