Oilers Beat Jets, McDavid Reaches 4 Incredible Feats in Win

Connor McDavid continues to amaze. He led the Oilers to another win over the Winnipeg Jets Wednesday and hit four feats in the process.

To say that Connor McDavid is special no longer does his game justice. He’s beyond incredible, electric, dynamic or astounding. There are really no words. But, a few stats that he reached on Wednesday night as the Edmonton Oilers beat the Winnipeg Jets might help describe just how good a player he is.

Most Consecutive Three-Plus Point Games

If McDavid has one more game with three points, he’s going to be in his own category of players to play the game in the last 25 years. Not since before 1995 has a player scored three or more points in more than four games consecutively. As it stands, McDavid’s outing against the Jets ties him with players like Tyler Bertuzzi, Keith Tkachuck, Patrick Marleau, and Peter Forsberg as the only players to do so since 2000.

It would be absolutely incredible if he did so against the Flames on Thursday night.

Nine-Game Point Streak vs. Jets

McDavid has factored in on the scoreboard in each contest versus the Jets this season. He becamse the first Oilers player in history to post a single-season nine-game point streak vs. one opponent. McDavid has 22 points (seven goals, 15 assists) against the Jets this season.

Consistent Point-Per-Period Player

It’s one thing to be a point-per-game player in the NHL. That’s an amazing feat on its own and only a handful of players reach that point each season. McDavid is well beyond that and has been most of the season. With 84 points in 47 games, he’s producing at a 1.78 points per game clip.

That’s just the tip of it though. Recently, he’s become a point-per-period player. As Eric Friesen points out on Twitter: “Connor McDavid has 14 points in his last 14 periods. Not games. Periods! He’s a point-per-period player right now.” Sure, others have done this in a game or over the course of two games. But 14 games?

20 Or More Points Against Multiple Opponents in One Season

Finally, McDavid is the first player since Wayne Gretzky to earn 20 or more points against multiple opponents in a single season. McDavid’s 22 points against the Jets this season isn’t the only 20-plus points total he’s achieved. He also reached that standard against the Ottawa Senators.

McDavid has figured in 84 of Oilers 153 goals this season. That alone is amazing.
