WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Washington’s 19-year-old rookie Andre Burakovsky, the 23rd overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, scored his first-career goal in his first-career period playing in the NHL, to give the Capitals an early 1-0 lead over the Montreal Canadiens Thursday night.
The winger-converted-to-second line-center’s goal came a little over six and a half minutes into the first period of the Capitals’ 2014-15 regular season-opener.
Caps winger Troy Brouwer kicked and intercepted a pass by Montreal defenceman P.K. Subban, and found an open Burakovsky sliding in front of Canadiens netminder Dustin Tokarski.
Burakovsky slapped it in to capitalize on a night of career firsts.
He was born in 1995.
