19-year-old Andre Burakovsky has already scored his first NHL goal, and we’re not even ten minutes old! Skating between Troy Brouwer and Marcus Johansson, Burakovsky continued his torrid pace from the preseason, scoring a one-timer from the slot.
Troy Brouwer forced a key turnover from fartypants PK Subban.
The new second-line center celebrated by smiling and taking a leap into the boards– like Alex Ovechkin.

The goal itself drew comparisons to the Great Eight’s first career NHL goal from nine years back. See for yourself.
Burakovsky’s mom, dad, and grandparents are in attendance tonight. It’s like a fairy tale.
Ovechkin congratulates Andre on the bench.
