WATCH: Connor Carrick score first NHL goal
Every man has that one moment where they experience a massive amount of joy. Whether it’s the birth of a child, a new car, getting married (yes the beginning is fun haha) or scoring their first NHL goal. Connor Carrick got to experience the latter last night against the Calgary Flames.
A 5th round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft from the Plymoth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League, the Oraland Park, Illinois native and teammate of Tom Wilson both in Washington and Plymoth took a pass from Marcus Johansson, made his way past the Calgary defense, and put the puck past Kari Ramo with some nifty moves for the score.
Carrick signed a standard three year entry level deal with the Capitals on September 23rd. The 19 year old registered 44 points (12 goals 22 assists) in 68 games and helped the Whalers reach the OHL Playoffs, tallying 18 points (2 goals 16 assists) in 15 games. Carrick also helped the US win gold at the 2013 World Junior Championship back in January.
