NEW YORKEdmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid, who led all rookies with 5-7—12 in 12 games, has been named the NHL's Rookie of the Month for October.

McDavid edged Arizona Coyotes left wing Max Domi (5-6—11 in 11 GP), Chicago Blackhawks left wing Artemi Panarin (2-8—10 in 11 GP), Winnipeg Jets right wing Nikolaj Ehlers (4-4—8 in 11 GP) and St. Louis Blues defenseman Colton Parayko (4-3—7 in 11 GP) for the honor.

McDavid, the first overall selection in the 2015 NHL Draft, made his League debut Oct. 8 at STL. He recorded his first goal Oct. 13 at DAL, notched his first multi-goal/point game Oct. 17 at CGY (2-1—3), registered his first game-winning goal Oct. 21 vs. DET and compiled a seven-game point streak from Oct. 17-29 (4-7—11).

The 18-year-old Richmond Hill, Ont., native spent the past three seasons with the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League, where he collected 97-188—285 in 166 appearances. That included 44-76—120 (all career highs) in just 47 games last season as well as 21-28—49 in 20 playoff outings, earning him the OHL's Red Tilson Trophy (Most Outstanding Player) and Wayne Gretzky '99' Award (Playoff MVP).
