EDMONTON, AB - Oilers captain Connor McDavid has been selected as the NHL's Second Star of the Week after scoring three goals and five assists in three games.
McDavid tallied once and picked up a pair of helpers during Edmonton's 6-5 win over Anaheim at home last Tuesday, scored twice with one assist during the 5-1 road drubbing over Arizona on Thursday, and chipped in with a pair of helpers during the 5-3 decision in Vegas on Saturday.
He hit the 200-goal milestone for his career in the win over the Coyotes. Among players to make their NHL debut with Edmonton, only three required fewer games than McDavid (411 GP) to reach the 200-goal mark with the franchise: Wayne Gretzky (242), Jari Kurri (328) and Glenn Anderson (348).
