Ivan Miroshnichenko, the Capitals’ talented first-round pick from the 2022 NHL Draft, scored his fourth goal of his rookie season in North America.
Taking a lob pass from Bears defenseman Nicky Leivermann, the young Russian shed his man and broke in all alone on goaltender Jakub Skarek. Miroshnichenko quckly deked before his shot squeaked by Skarek five-hole.

The tally is Miroshnichenko’s second in the last three games. He also scored Sunday against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on Hockey Fights Cancer Night — a year after beating Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Miroshnichenko has eight points (4g, 4a) in his first 15 games in North America after impressing Capitals brass in Washington during Training Camp.
