McDavids 100 points in 53 games garners plenty of social media reaction


Connor McDavid kept it 100 on Saturday.

The Edmonton Oilers captain picked up four points in a 4-3 victory against the Vancouver Canucks giving him 100 this season in just 53 games.

Only eight other players have scored 100 points in 53 games or less in NHL history: Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr, Phil Esposito, Marcel Dionne, Steve Yzerman, Jari Kurri and Bernie Nicholsl.

After putting up a goal and three assists on Saturday, social media lit up with wonder for the 2017 Hart Trophy winner who is undoubtedly in the mix for the 2021 award.

Hockey YouTuber Nasher summed up McDavid’s season simply with two emojis that would be hard to argue against.
