WATCH: Travis Konecny scores before anyone even knows what's happened

New, comments

Konency is on pace for over 100 points in the OHL this season.

Travis Konecny, the Philadelphia Flyers' 24th overall pick from the 2015 NHL draft, spent his entire OHL career with the Ottawa 67's - until he was traded to the Sarnia Sting. But even though he only played 29 games with Ottawa, he's still the 67's second-highest point scorer, with seven goals and 38 assists.

Seven goals really isn't a lot, though. But since ending up in Sarnia - and though he's only played 16 games with them, he's already fourth in team scoring - he has 12 goals and 16 assists.

Konecny wasn't scoring that much himself in Ottawa, but in Sarnia? Well, via Brady Trettenero, here's his latest:

Konecny goes for a spin - and then the puck is off his stick and in the net before anyone is quite sure what happened. It was the game-tying goal; Sarnia won 2-1.

He now has 19 goals and 54 assists - 73 points - through 45 games, good for sixth overall in OHL scoring. The only players ahead of him his age are third and fourth overall picks Dylan Strome and Mitch Marner, as well as the draft-eligible Matthew Tkachuk, who is currently projected to go fourth overall this upcoming draft.

Remember, Konecny was chosen 24th overall, and that's the company he's keeping.

Konecny still has another 17 regular season games with Sarnia this season. If he keeps up his current pace, he'll have 101 points in junior this season. He's a March birthday, so next season, it's either the OHL or NHL for him - and where are you supposed to go from a 100-point season?
