LA Kings' 2019 second-round draft pick Arthur Kaliyev continues to do what he does best, score goals.

As he scored his 115th and 116th goals on Saturday in a 9-4 win over the Niagara IceDogs, the right-winger set a new franchise record for most goals scored for his Ontario Hockey League team, the Hamilton Bulldogs.

As Kaliyev surpassed Matt Strome's previously held record, he became the highest goal scorer in franchise history.

To no surprise, Kaliyev's record-tying and record-setting goals came in vintage fashion, from the the power play. He has 12 goals with the man advantage this year, and sits fifth in the OHL in points with 76 and is fourth in goals with 35.

Though this may be one of the first milestones for Kaliyev, it surely won't be the last. He is currently ranked the seventh-overall NHL prospect according The Athletic
