Kyle Connor picked up an assist on the opening goal of the game for the Jets which sets a new career high for the Michigan Man who now has 77 points (39G 38A) in 63 games. It also establishes a new high for him in assists and a career best seven-game points streak. He then set a new career high in goals as he scored his 39th.
