McDavid Adds Another Accolade to His Growing List

Published August 16, 2023 at 7:49

The career of Connor McDavid has been a true delight for many NHL fans and the Oilers nation. The Oilers' superstar center continues to demonstrate his growth as a player, even at the age of 26. In the previous season, he achieved a significant milestone, surpassing the 60-goal mark for the first time, scoring an impressive 64 goals during the 2022-2023 season. This achievement left him just one goal short of tying Alexander Ovechkin's record of 65 goals set in 2007-08.

Last year also marked the first instance in which two NHL superstars exceeded the sixty-goal mark. This milestone was achieved by McDavid and David Pastrnak of the Boston Bruins. The last occurrence of this feat within a single season was back in 1995-96 when Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr were celebrated as the heroes of the day.

As McDavid enters his 9th season with the Oilers, his statistics are nothing short of remarkable. He has participated in 569 games, accumulating 303 goals and 547 assists for a total of 850 points. Additionally, he holds a +114 rating and has accrued 219 penalty minutes. Notably, McDavid boasts 289 power-play points and 64 game-winning goals.

While these statistics are undoubtedly impressive, the hope is that they will continue to flourish. Both McDavid and his team, as well as the entire Oilers fan base, are eager to witness the lifting of the 6th Stanley Cup at the end of the year.

The future will reveal whether the changes implemented by General Manager Ken Holland and any potential moves at this year's trade deadline can contribute to this goal.
