The Connor McMichael 2019-20 success tour continues on. The Caps 2019 first round pick just won a gold medal with Team Canada at the World Juniors where he had five goals and seven points total in seven games.
Now in his second game back for the London Knights, he has recorded the fourth hat trick of his OHL season.

Before this season, McMichael had only grabbed one previous OHL hat trick in 127 games. He has his four this season in only 29 games. He is also second in the OHL in points per game with 2.17 (behind Marco Rossi at 2.35) after missing time to win the previously mentioned goal medal.
To put this sort of multi-goal game craziness into perspective, even Connor McDavid never scored four hat tricks in one OHL season.
McMichael continues to tear up the OHL in his first year back after being drafted by the Caps, already racking up multiple player of the week awards, multiple dynamite scoring nights, and as previously mentioned four hat trick outings.
