McDavid's 26 points last month were the most by an Oilers player in November since Jari Kurri scored 10 goals and 16 assists for 26 points in 15 games during the 1988-89 season.
Seven playes recorded 20 or more points across the League in November, including Draisaitl who had four goals and 19 assists. Colorado's Nathan MacKinnon was right behind McDavid with 25 points, while Chicago's Patrick Kane had 24 points.
McDavid is looking to win his third scoring title in four years and will attempt to surpass his career-high 116 points from last season.
