EDMONTON, AB - Connor McDavid was named the NHL's 'First Star' for the month after leading the NHL with 20 assists and 27 points in 14 games in March.

The Oilers captain powered the Oilers to a 7-5-2 month as McDavid found the scoresheet in 12 of his 14 appearances. This included 11 multi-point performances and an eight-game multi-point scoring streak (3G, 15A), the longest such run by any NHL player since 2007 when Vincent Lecavalier recorded 21 points over eight games with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

McDavid also became the fifth player in League history to reach the 100-point milestone in three seasons before his 23rd birthday with two assists against the New Jersey Devils on March 13 (following Sidney Crosby, Wayne Gretzky, Dale Hawerchuk and Mario Lemieux, each with four).

The 22-year-old ranks second in the NHL with a career-high 74 assists and 115 points. McDavid tied a career high in goals with his 41st of the season on Monday night against the Vegas Golden Knights. The centreman is also tied for the League lead in game-winning goals with nine.

Columbus Blue Jackets netminder Sergei Bobrovsky was named the NHL 'Second Star' of the month with nine wins and four shutouts in 13 appearances while Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand was named the NHL's Third Star with 23 points (9G, 14A) in 15 games.
