Connor McDavid Joins Elite Company: 6th Player Ever to Reach 150 Points in a Single Season

The captain of the Edmonton Oilers, Connor McDavid, has consistently shown that he is a very unique talent. On Saturday, he joined an extremely select club of players in the annals of the National Hockey League.

McDavid became just the 6th player in NHL history to accumulate 150 points in a single season on a Saturday when every team in the league was in action. When he picked up a rebound in front of an open Sharks goal in the first period of a game between the Edmonton Oilers and the San Jose Sharks, McDavid achieved the feat. Although it was a significant accomplishment, McDavid’s goal may have been the easiest of the season.

The only players to ever surpass 150 points in a single season are McDavid, Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Steve Yzerman, Bernie Nicholls, and Phil Esposito, all of whom are NHL legends.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
