Connor McDavid Becomes The First NHL Player In Over 25 Years To Earn 140 Points In A Season
If there were any doubts that Connor McDavid is an absolute superstar, he earned his 140th point this season with his assist against the Arizona Coyotes (Edmonton won the game 5-4). The last time a player hit 140 points in an NHL season was during the 1995-1996 season when both Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr achieved the feat. McDavid became the first Oilers player since the Great One, Wayne Gretzky, did it in the 1987-1988 season to reach that mark. He is also only the seventh player in NHL history to earn at least 60 goals and 80 assists in a single season.
