Connor McDavid scores pretty goal, gets flipped over against Plymouth

It was an eventful night for Erie Otters phenom Connor McDavid against Plymouth Monday night as far as YouTube highlights go. The Otters broke out offensively for the first time in nearly a month—they hadn't scored more than six goals since February 8 against London, but beat the Whalers by an 11-2 score on home ice. McDavid was a big factor on the scoreboard, scoring a goal and recording three assists.

His goal, coming midway through the second period, may not be one he'll soon forget. Unfortunately, 1996-born Plymouth defenceman Alex Peters won't soon forget it either. He wears No. 2 and the goat horns in this clip as he gets toyed by an unstoppable McDavid:

That goal made the score 6-1 for the Otters and was McDavid's 22nd goal on the season. The Whalers exacted some physical revenge a touch later after McDavid was hit by young defenceman Josh Wesley, prompting a minor brawl:

Peters declined to fight Cody Genovese, but Dane Fox unleashed some awkward agression on Cincent Scognamiglio a little bit earlier. Wesley got a rare two minutes for clipping on the play for flipping McDavid over.

McDavid would be okay, but he would only record one more assist for the rest of the game.
