Top Connor McMichael News

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Capitals' Connor McMichael: Forces OT with milestone goal

    McMichael scored his first NHL goal and had two shots in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to Florida.

    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.

  • Capitals' Connor McMichael: Notches first two NHL points

    McMichael picked up two assists in Monday's 7-5 win over the Senators.

    The young center helped set up T.J. Oshie for the final two goals of his hat trick, with the third tally proving to be the game-winner. The points were the first of McMichael's career in his fifth NHL game, and the 2019 first-round pick should continue to draw a regular shift in the top six at even strength while Nicklas Backstrom (hip) is sidelined, and perhaps earn some consistent time on the power play if he continues to produce.

  • Capitals' Connor McMichael: Recalled to DC

    McMichael was promoted from AHL Hershey to the Capitals on Tuesday, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

    McMichael was sent down to the minors as a formality on Monday and was eligible to be recalled once Nicklas Backstrom (hip) was placed on long-term injured reserve. The 20-year-old center could garner a long look with the Capitals while Backstrom is on the shelf, though he may make his season debut as a top-line winger if Alex Ovechkin (lower body) is unable to play in Wednesday's opener against the Rangers.

  • Capitals' Connor McMichael: Sent to minors

    McMichael was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Monday.

    McMichael scored an impressive 14 goals and 27 points in 33 games with AHL Hershey last season and made his NHL debut in January. A 2019 first-round pick, the 20-year-old forward should see some more time with the big club this season.

  • Capitals' Connor McMichael: Called up for playoff run

    McMichael will be promoted from AHL Hershey to join the Capitals' expanded playoff roster for the remainder of the postseason, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

    McMichael appeared in one NHL game this season while adding 14 goals and 13 assists in 34 games with Hershey. The 2019 first-round pick is unlikely to see game action if the Capitals remain healthy up front but should slot in near the top of the injury fill-in list.

  • Capitals' Connor McMichael: Sent to minors

    McMichael was re-assigned to AHL Hershey on Saturday, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    McMichael made his NHL debut Jan. 24 but will need to wait for his next chance to crack the Capitals' lineup. The 20-year-old remains worth stashing in dynasty formats in the interim.

  • Capitals' Connor McMichael: Shifts back to taxi squad

    McMichael was assigned to the taxi squad Tuesday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    The 2019 first-round pick (25th overall) made his NHL debut in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Sabres and posted two PIM and a shot on net over 9:54. He'll go back to the taxi squad for now, and he could end up being assigned to the AHL once the minor-league season begins.

  • Capitals' Connor McMichael: Set for NHL debut

    McMichael will make his NHL debut in Sunday's game against the Sabres after being recalled from the taxi squad, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

    Tom Wilson (lower body) has been ruled out, opening the door for McMichael to enter the lineup. It's unclear what line he will play on, but the 20-year-old could handle some power-play time. McMichael was a star with the London Knights of the OHL last season, racking up 47 goals and 55 assists over 52 games.

  • Capitals' Connor McMichael: Could make debut soon

    Head coach Peter Laviolette indicated that McMichael could see game action with Evgeny Kuznetsov (COVID-19 protocols) and Alex Ovechkin (COVID-19 protocols) in quarantine, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    With heavy offensive firepower out of the lineup, the Capitals may take advantage of the opportunity to see what top prospect McMichael can do. The 20-year-old could be worth a gander for those in deeper leagues who are desperate for a short-term option, but he'll need to establish himself as a capable offensive threat to merit consideration in standard leagues.

  • Capitals' Connor McMichael: Promoted to taxi squad

    McMichael was called up to the taxi squad Thursday.

    McMichael's promotion comes as Alex Ovechkin (COVID-19 protocols) and Evgeni Kuznetsov (COVID-19 protocols) are currently unavailable. McMichael shouldn't be expected to get into a game any time soon, even if those guys aren't available, as Daniel Sprong and Conor Sheary figure to have the inside track to increased minutes.

  • Capitals' Connor McMichael: Assigned to AHL Hershey

    The Capitals assigned McMichael (not injury related) to their AHL affiliate Wednesday, per TSN.

    McMichael began his mandatory seven-day quarantine after arriving in Washington on Saturday, so he won't be eligible to join the Capitals until this weekend at the earliest. The 2019 first-round pick is expected to join his junior team whenever the OHL season gets underway, but he could stick with Washington's taxi squad until then.

  • Capitals' Connor McMichael: Arrives in Washington

    McMichael has arrived in Washington and begun his mandatory quarantine, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    McMichael won't be able to practice with the Capitals before they leave on their four-game road trip, which begins Thursday in Buffalo, but he could join the team on the road once he's cleared. The 2019 first-round pick just put up four goals and eight points in seven games with Team Canada at the World Junior Championship and could find himself on Washington's taxi squad until the OHL season gets underway.

  • Capitals' Connor McMichael: Joining Capitals at training camp

    McMichael will join the Capitals training camp now that the IIHF World Junior Championship has concluded, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reported on Thursday.

    Fresh off a four-goal, eight-point stint for silver medal-winning Team Canada in the World Juniors, McMichael has a legitimate shot to make the Capitals taxi squad given that the OHL remains shut down due. The 19-year-old has tremendous upside in dynasty formats but is unlikely to garner enough of a role on a deep Capitals squad to pay dividends in standard leagues during the 2021 campaign.
