McDavid now on pace for 116 points

After Friday night's dominant performance against the Wild Connor now sits with 40 points in 28 games (the Oilers have played 29 but 97 missed the recent game against Dallas).

After a quiet ten days his 4 point outing puts him on pace for 116 points, his best ever but a little off his pace of earlier in the season.

His recent cooling off I think can be attributed to three main factors:

  1. Adjusting to live with new coach Ken Hitchcock
  2. High amounts of ice time leading to tiredness
  3. A recent bout of illness that led to him missing the Dallas game

McDavid sits 4th in NHL scoring, 8 points behind leader Mikko Rantanen.

McDavid continues to score in most games, of the 28 games he has played in he has just 4 games with zero points, he then has:

14 one point games

6 two point games

2 three point games

2 four point games

Lets see what tonight brings in the Battle of Alberta!
