The Washington Capitals have selected Connor McMichael with the 25th overall selection in the 2019 NHL entry draft.
McMichael is an excellent two-way player that brings a lot of different attributes to the table. While he primarily plays center, he can also play left wing and can be effective on the penalty kill.
The Canadian had 72 points in 67 games for the London Knights in the OHL and had a 56 point improvement from the previous season.
McMichael has the potential to become a top 6 centerman in the near future for the Washington Capitals but is still a few years away.
