Connor McDavid 2023-24 Profile
Connor McDavid, a 6-1 center, is the key player for the Edmonton Oilers, the team that drafted him first overall in 2015.
McDavid is already considered one of the best players ever, even though he is still only 26 years old.
Not many players in NHL history have been faster than him, even fewer have been able to make plays at the speed he works with. The puck handling puts him atop of the league at the moment, and it seems like he scores the way he wants at times. Given his age, McDavid is still not in his prime, but with his experience and from what we have seen from him now, it is safe to say that he is the best player in the league at the moment, and it may take a while before anyone else steps in that place.
Connor McDavid General Information
Connor McDavid was born in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada, on January 13, 1997.
His father, Brian, played hockey in high school and later became a coach, while his mother, Kelly, played one year of recreational ice hockey as a child before turning her attention towards skiing.
McDavid was introduced to hockey at the age of three, and the very next year, he started playing organized hockey. He had to play against older children since he was that good and stood out early in his childhood.
Connor McDavid Background
At the age of 14, McDavid joined the Toronto Marlboros of the Greater Toronto Hockey League. He won the GTHL Player of the Year Award in 2012 after scoring 33 goals and recording 39 assists in 33 regular season games. He had another 19 points in seven OHL Cup games, the most by any player since Sam Gagner recorded 17 points in five games during the 2005 tournament.
After that season, McDavid applied for exceptional player status through Hockey Canada, and after passing through evaluations, he was allowed to enter the junior hockey draft at the age of 15 rather than 16. Soon after, the Erie Otters selected McDavid first overall in the 2012 OHL Priority Selection.
McDavid won the Player of the Month award in the first two months of the season and became the youngest OHL player ever to participate in the Subway Super Series. He finished his rookie season with 25 goals and 41 assists in 63 regular season games. In addition to being named to the OHL First All-Rookie Team, McDavid took home the 2013 Emms Family Award for OHL Rookie of the Year.
The following season, McDavid won the 2014 Bobby Smith Trophy for the OHL’s Scholastic Player of the Year and was named the 2014 CHL Scholastic Player of the Year.
In the 2014-15 season, McDavid struggled with injuries but still managed to score 100 points despite playing in only 38 games. That season, he won the Bobby Smith Trophy and CHL Scholastic Player of the Year for the second consecutive year. McDavid was also named to the OHL First All-Star Team, received the Red Tilson Trophy for the most outstanding player in the OHL, the CHL Player of the Year title, and the CHL Top Draft Prospect Award, meaning that he was ready for the big league.
Connor McDavid’s NHL Career So Far
The Edmonton Oilers selected McDavid with the first overall pick at the 2015 NHL Draft. He scored the first goal in his third NHL game against the Dallas Stars. Unfortunately, soon after, he suffered a fractured left clavicle after a collision and played only 45 games in his rookie season. However, he finished fourth in scoring among rookies and finished third in the Rookie of the Year voting.
The following season, McDavid became the youngest captain in NHL history at 19 years and 266 days. He failed to score in ten consecutive games that season but came back with his first-ever hat-trick. He earned his first All-Star selection, leading the league with 16 goals and 56 points by that point. He led the league in scoring with 100 points that season, becoming the youngest player to win the Art Ross Trophy for the NHL scoring leader since 19-year-old Sidney Crosby won in the 2006–07 season. The Oilers were back in the Playoffs for the first time in 10 years.
At the end of the season, McDavid won both the Hart Memorial Trophy for the most valuable player in the NHL and the Ted Lindsay Award for the most outstanding player.
McDavid started the 2018-19 season with a hat-trick, and right after the All-Star break, he had his first NHL four-goal game with a 6–2 win over the Lightning. That season, McDavid set career highs with 41 goals and 108 points, and he led the NHL with 84 even-strength points. He became the first player to receive the Art Ross Trophy in back-to-back years since Jaromír Jágr in 2000 and 2001.
In the 2019-20 season, McDavid set an NHL record with his third Fastest Skater victory. He finished the season with a career-tying 41 goals, as well as a career-high 75 assists and 116 points, and he came in third in Hart Trophy voting. Unfortunately, in the last game of the season, he suffered a knee injury after colliding with the post at 25 miles per hour.
McDavid recovered just in time for the next season and reached 400 NHL points in 306 games, joining Sidney Crosby as the only other active NHL player to reach the milestone in that many games and also became the eighth player ever to reach that milestone before his 23rd birthday.
His 500th career point came on an assist against the Winnipeg Jets in the 2020-21 season. In only the 53rd game of the pandemic-shortened season, McDavid reached his 100th point of the year, becoming the first player to reach the milestone in so few games since Mario Lemieux during the 1995–96 season and later won his third career Art Ross Trophy.
McDavid started the 2021-22 season on a 17-game point streak. However, the Oilers were not playing well, and head coach Dave Tippett was fired. The team played better under head coach Jay Woodcroft and reached the Playoffs. McDavid finished the season with 44 goals, 79 assists, and 123 points in 80 games to secure his fourth career Art Ross Trophy. The Oilers made it to the Western Conference finals where they lost to the Colorado Avalanche.
In the 2022-23 season, McDavid scored a career-high 64 goals. He had a total of 153 points, winning his fifth Art Ross Trophy and, for the first time in his career, earning the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy for leading the NHL in goal-scoring.
Connor McDavid 2023-24 Season Forecast
McDavid has won every individual award in the NHL, and the only thing that is missing on his resume is the Stanley Cup trophy. The Oilers have improved a lot since drafting him, making it to the Playoffs for four consecutive seasons, but has yet to advance to the final. The sole thing that separates McDavid from the greatest players ever is the team’s success, and both he and the Oilers hope this will be their year.
