Connor McDavid can surpass an NHL Legend if he does this

Published August 6, 2023 at 0:03

In the 2022-2023 season, Connor McDavid tallied an impressive 153 points, marking his third 100-point season.

Interestingly, he has only had two seasons in his entire career where he scored less than 100 points, those being 48 points in 2015-2016 and 97 points in 2019-2020.

Most points before turning 27 in NHL history:

1606 — Wayne Gretzky
1014 — Mario Lemieux
929 — Dale Hawerchuk
903 — Steve Yzerman
859 — Bobby Orr
850 — Connor McDavid

#97 has 38 more games as a 26yo.

Where does he place on this list by the time he's 27 years old?

It's worth noting that Wayne Gretzky had a staggering 1606 points before turning 27 in the NHL. However, McDavid has a chance to surpass Dale Hawerchuk and Mario Lemieux this season if he can add 164 points to his total with his exceptional speed.

Although he is not yet considered "The Great One," McDavid is certainly paving his own path to greatness, and his career is something to keep an eye on.
