Friday night in Portland, Maine, one Washington Capitals prospect had an odd milestone. 2013 first-round pick Andre Burakovsky scored his first American Hockey League goal. In an odd twist, it came 163 days after his first NHL goal earlier this season.

(I may or may not have taught this person how to GIF. Bravo!)
Burakovsky scored with a wicked wrist shot. It eluded former NHL goaltender Mike McKenna.
The goal gave the Bears a 3-2 overtime victory. It’s Burakovsky’s first goal in six AHL games.
Congratulations, I think.
