McDavid then was held off the scoresheet in a 2-1 triumph over the Calgary Flames Feb. 19 before bouncing back with 3-2-5, including his eighth-career regular-season hat trick, in a 7-1 win over Edmonton's provincial rival Feb. 20.

He also leads the League in assists (25), power-play assists (T-11) and power-play points (16).
