Capitals prospect Jakub Vrana scored a goal and an assist as his Linkoping defeated Lulea 3-1 in an SHL game. Vrana, who scored the game-winning goal on Saturday, now has five goals and five assists. That was his fourth two-point game of his SHL season.
The 18-year-old forward also had two two-point nights in the Champions Hockey League. This year, he has had six two-point nights in 21 outings.
Videos of Vrana’s highlights from Saturday are under the jump.
Vrana assisted on a goal by Mark Matheson. His hesitation on the half wall gave his teammate just enough time to find room in the slot. Vrana placed a perfect pass on Matheson’s tape.
Vrana’s goal came on the power play. After fetching a strong pass from Jeff Taffe at the side of the net, Vrana ripped a shot top-shelf from almost no angle, giving his team what ended up being the game-winning goal.
