Kyle Connor points streak hits 24; natural hat trick in 2nd period

Three goals in the 2nd to give him 24 straight games with a point.

Kyle Connor

The Wolverines are in St. Paul taking on Penn State in the semi final of the Big Ten Championship series.  Of course all eyes in Winnipeg are on #18 Kyle Connor as he continues to excite fans with his play.  After a quiet 1st period for the Jets 2015 1st round pick his CCM line got things started in the 2nd as he picked up three goals in a row (aka the natural hat trick).

During the 2nd period intermission Wolverines coach Red Berenson was interviewed about the Jets prospect and had this to say:

“It’s special.  He has a gift and it’s amazing.  Whether its his release, his accuracy, his consistency, I mean this kid can score goals.  And they are not garbage goals.  They are big time goals. He’s showing us something special this year…..He does all the right things a scorer should do”

According to Michigan Hockey his 32nd goal (his third was #33) is a new Michigan Wolverines freshman record.

While I was transitioning from my house to the MTS Centre for tonight’s Jets and Blackhawks game appears that Mr. Connor put in goal number four of the game.
