ARLINGTON, V.A. — With 3-on-3 scrimmages got underway at Washington Capitals development camp Wednesday, Peter Laviolette, son of the Capitals bench boss, got open in front and made an insane play that made Vincent Iorio’s jaw drop.

As Hendrix Lapierre’s team faced off against Martin Has’ team,  Has chipped a loose puck into the air. Laviolette caught sight of the puck and got in position, whipping around before smacking it out of mid-air and firing it past Mitchell Gibson.

It was by far one of the best plays at the team’s development camp so far, and a huge celebration broke out for the 6-4 center. Here’s how it all went down:

Laviolette plays for Plymouth State in New Hampshire and is coming off a strong season with the Panthers. Through 27 games, the captain dished 11 goals and 15 assists, as well as 123 shots and 13 blocks.

“Yeah, it’s been good. You’re watching development camp and you’re watching all your players, but he’s out there. And he did good. He’s looked good out there,” coach Laviolette said, adding, “It’s great to see everybody out there but when you have your son out there, it changes the look on it a little bit and I thought he’s done a good job.”
