Capitals' Connor McMichael: One of each Wednesday
McMichael scored a goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Kings.
McMichael's tally at 18:30 of the second period stood as the game-winner. He and Anthony Mantha set up each other's goals in the contest. McMichael had picked up just one assist over his previous four outings. The 22-year-old is up to five goals, 10 points, 33 shots on net and a plus-1 rating through 19 appearances. He's primarily played in a third-line role at center since Nicklas Backstrom (hip) stepped away from the team.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: Earns two points Wednesday
McMichael scored a shorthanded goal on six shots, dished an assist and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Panthers.
McMichael's shortie was the first of his career, and just his second shorthanded point, both of which have come this season. He also set up the second of Anthony Mantha's (upper body) two goals. McMichael has lined up as the third-line center since Nicklas Backstrom (hip) stepped away from the Capitals. McMichael has five points, 21 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating through 11 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: Sliding to center
McMichael lined up as the third-line center during Wednesday's practice, Sammi Silber of The Hockey news reports.
McMichael is poised to anchor the third line in the wake of Nicklas Backstrom (hip) announcing he is stepping away from the team to ponder his playing future. The 22-year-old McMichael had been a good fit as a top-six winger despite only having two goals and three points in eight games, but he'll now get an opportunity to return to his natural position following Backstrom's announcement. The 25th overall pick from the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, McMichael is likely to get a regular role moving forward, but the lack of top-six ice time could make his offensive production less consistent, especially as he adapts to the rigors of playing center in the NHL....

Capitals' Connor McMichael: Garners secondary assist
McMichael supplied a shorthanded assist in Friday's 3-2 shootout win over the Wild.
McMichael has reemerged for the Capitals after playing in only six games at the top level last season. The versatile forward actually appeared in 68 games during the 2021-22 campaign, adding nine goals and nine assists to put him on the map as a bottom-six skater. Currently, he's a sneaky option on the third line alongside venerable veteran Nicklas Backstrom and Anthony Mantha, who has been quite inconsistent.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: Scores game-winner
McMichael scored a goal on two shots in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Devils.
McMichael's third-period tally put the Capitals ahead for good. The 22-year-old forward has occupied a middle-six role this season, racking up two goals and nine shots on net over six contests. It's encouraging that he's maintained his place in the lineup, but McMichael will need to produce more offense to be an option for most fantasy managers.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: Nets tying goal
McMichael scored a goal in Monday's 3-2 shootout win over the Flames.
McMichael tied the game at 2-2 just before the halfway mark of the second period. He's held down a middle-six role in both games this season, though he was limited to just one blocked shot in the season opener versus Pittsburgh. McMichael was selected in the first round in 2019, and he's looking to hold down an everyday job with the Capitals after appearing in just six contests a year ago.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: Summoned from minors
McMichael was recalled from AHL Hershey on Wednesday.
McMichael was technically sent down to the minors ahead of Monday's cap compliance deadline but with Joel Edmundson (hand) and Max Pacioretty (Achilles) now formally on the injured list, the Capitals have added McMichael back to their active roster. The 22-year-old winger was impressive during preseason action and skated frequently on a line with Evgeny Kuznetsov and Tom Wilson. McMichael has some legitimate sleeper appeal if he can stick in Washington's top six.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: Reassigned to AHL
McMichael was loaned to AHL Hershey on Monday.
McMichael could be back with the big club very soon, as Washington had to move around players in order to be cap compliant before Monday's deadline. He generated 16 goals and 39 points in 57 AHL contests last campaign.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: Loaned to AHL Hershey
McMichael was loaned to AHL Hershey on Sunday.
McMichael has appeared in six games with the Capitals this season, posting two shots on goal, three blocks and two hits. He has averaged just 8:52 of ice time. McMichael should see a dramatic increase in playing time in the minors. Demoting him to the AHL clears a potential roster spot for the activation of Dmitry Orlov (lower body) or T.J. Oshie (lower body) from injured reserve.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: Earns first playoff point
McMichael notched an assist and two hits in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Panthers in Game 5.
McMichael had the secondary helper on T.J. Oshie's second goal of the game. The assist was McMichael's first career playoff point, though he remains limited to bottom-six minutes through three postseason appearances. He's added one shots on goal and four hits, but he's yet to see more than 8:35 of ice time in a game, so he's unlikely to be much of a contributor in fantasy.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: Benefits from gaffe
McMichael tallied a goal, a plus-2 rating and two shots during Thursday's 7-2 victory over the Blue Jackets.
McMichael's tally could appropriately be described as "lucky" as he was credited with an own-goal committed by Blue Jackets defender Dean Kukan during a botched clearing play that ended up in the back of the net. The 20-year-old has hit the rookie-wall hard with Thursday's fluky goal standing as his only point in the last 13 games. McMichael has a bright future as he continues to develop, but he holds very little fantasy value at present.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: One of each Friday
McMichael scored a goal, dished an assist and went plus-2 in Friday's 5-0 win over the Stars.
McMichael set up Trevor van Riemsdyk's first-period tally before scoring one of his own in the second. This was the second multi-point game of McMichael's career, the other being a two-assist effort versus the Senators on Oct. 25. The 21-year-old is up to six tallies, 14 points, 68 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating through 41 contests. He's been limited to bottom-six work for much of the season, but he's held onto his place in the lineup regularly in his first full campaign.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: Returns to practice Wednesday
McMichael (illness) was dressed for practice Wednesday, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.
McMichael has averaged 10:59 of ice time through his 25 December and November contests but saw a season-low 6:03 during his only game of 2022. The 20-year-old winger may be in line for reassignment to the taxi squad or the AHL affiliate if his minutes don't start trending in a positive direction.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: Misses practice Tuesday
McMichael did not practice Tuesday due to a non-COVID illness, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.
McMichael has logged two goals and averaged 9:33 of ice time over his past 12 games. He should be considered day-to-day ahead of Friday's contest at St. Louis.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: Pots goal in loss
McMichael scored a goal on three shots and added five hits in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.
McMichael saw a season-low 6:18 of ice time despite scoring a goal for the first time since Nov. 30. The 20-year-old is up to four tallies, nine points, 60 shots on net and a minus-2 rating in 29 contests, though his playing time has trended down in December. That suggests he could be a player that exits the lineup once the Capitals get some forwards out of COVID-19 protocols.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: Dishes helper Wednesday
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....

Capitals' Connor McMichael: Collects assist
McMichael tallied an assist during Sunday's 6-1 win over the Penguins.
McMichael has posted two goals and four points in his last six games, serving as Washington's second-line center while Nicklas Backstrom (hip) and Nic Dowd (lower body) remain sidelined. The 20-year-old rookie has six points in 13 games after having been pressed into service due to injuries. However, McMichael is likely to be returned to the minors once Washington gets healthy, making him a short-term commodity in standard fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor McMichael: Has points in three straight
McMichael scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 5-3 win over Buffalo.
McMichael hopped off the bench to jump into the play and snapped one short side past Buffalo netminder Dustin Tokarski. It was the second goal of the year for McMichael and gave him a point in three consecutive games.... See More ... See Less

McMichael tied the game at 4-4 just under seven minutes into the third period, burying a loose puck in front to bring the Capitals all the way back from a three-goal deficit. The 20-year-old was appearing in just his eighth game of the season and only logged 7:59 of ice time.... See More ... See Less
