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.

Tweet from @mike_p_johnson: 100 points for McDavid is an incredible accomplishment in any year, let alone 53 games. We know he���s great, but this night, like a Gretzky with 5 to get 50 in 39, he is on another level. One of the best games I can remember pic.twitter.com/mdLX4e59pk

Big time Oilers fan and musician Brett Kissel was fired up for the feat.

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