A look at a good sign for the Caps' young Swede

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

18:30 - Ice time for Andre Burakovsky in last night's shootout loss, the highest TOI of his career to date, to go with a career-high 25 shifts. Amazingly, that ice time only included one shift in overtime (albeit a shift lasting over a minute).

Burakovsky made good use of his extended time, scoring the only two goals of the game (including one just under a minute into the game) to help his team pick up a well-deserved standings point.

More importantly, that trust from the coaching staff seems to bode well for a kid the team is hoping will take another step forward and provide plenty of secondary scoring this season.
