EDMONTON, AB - Oilers captain Connor McDavid has been selected as the NHL's Second Star of the Week after scoring four goals and six assists in four games.
McDavid led Edmonton to a 3-1-0 record last week, recording his 10 points in the three victories. He tallied his ninth career regular season hat-trick on April 26 in Winnipeg as part of a four-point night and had three assists two nights later also on the road against the Jets.
He was held off the scoresheet last Thursday at home against Calgary but rebounded with one goal and two assists on Saturday in the final Battle of Alberta of the season.
The 24-year-old leads the NHL in points (87), assists (58), points per game (1.78), even-strength points (56) and power-play points (31), while ranking second in goals (29) and game-winning goals (10).
McDavid is on pace for 99 points in the 56-game regular season and is on track to win his third Art Ross Trophy as the NHL's leading point producer in the last five years.
Detroit Red Wings netminder Thomas Greiss was selected as the NHL's First Star of the Week, while New York Islanders goalie Semyon Varlamov was named Third Star of the Week.
