For the second time this season, London Knights forward Connor McMichael has been named the OHL’s Player of the Week.

In a pair of weekend wins, the Washington Capitals prospect posted four goals and four assists, which included a career-high six points in London’s overtime win over Erie on Friday night.

To add to his big night, McMichael also potted the overtime winner. He is the first Knights player to record six points in a game since Robert Thomas on Oct. 27, 2017.

McMichael continued his strong weekend with a goal and an assist in Sunday’s 5-1 road win over the Oshawa Generals, extending his run of consecutive multi-point performances to six.

McMichael will represent Team OHL in this week’s CIBC Canada/Russia Series.

Also considered for the award this week were Hamilton Bulldogs teammates Arthur Kaliyev and Jan Jenik who each posted four goals, four assists and eight points over three games as the Bulldogs played to a 2-1 record.
