Connor McDavid entered the third period of Thursday's game against the Colorado Avalanche without filing a point.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that the Oilers Captain ended the night with two assists - both registered in the final 20 minutes - to make it 26 multi-point games this season, which is tops in the National Hockey League.

Tweet from @SNstats: #Oilers Connor McDavid has an NHL-high 26 multi-point games this season. He has 2+ points in 38 of 119 career NHL games (31.9%).

In 81 of his 119 career NHL contests, the sophomore Oiler has recorded at least a point. That's converting at a 68 percent clip.

McDavid's failed to record a tally of any sort in only 23 games in the 2016-17 campaign and has not gone three consecutive matches without one. 

The Newmarket, ON, product is on a six-game point streak, accumulating three goals and nine assists during that span. He has 26 goals, 61 assists and 87 points on the year.
