McDavid’s 60th goal of the season came Wednesday night as an overtime game winner against Arizona.
EDMONTON, AB — Not content with being the NHL’s championship leader year after year, Connor McDavid has ensured he’s dominating all offensive categories this season.
The four-time Art Ross Trophy winner – awarded to the National Hockey League player who leads the league in points at the end of the regular season – is on track to end this season as the Maurice Richard Trophy winner as the league’s top scorer .
McDavid scored his 60th goal of the season in overtime against the Arizona Coyotes on Wednesday, and he did it well.
It was an attempt to try again, and McDavid credited his incredibly talented teammate with helping make it happen.

“Leon (Draisaitl) makes a great play on the first pass and I felt like I was pushing all night for the 60th and I was disappointed not to bury that one, you won’t get many better looks than that” , said McDavid, “It’s not every day you get two breakaways like that in a row. He made two incredible plays. Just ridiculous.”
McDavid’s previous career high in goals was 44, set last season on his way to a then-personal record 123 points.
He already has 138 points with 10 games left and has a 12-goal lead over second-seeded Boston Bruins David Pastrnak.
He is also one of four active players to have reached the 60-goal mark, along with Alex Ovechkin, Steven Stamkos and Auston Matthews.
McDavid already has a resume worthy of the Hall of Fame, but still has some important hardware to add to his trophy case, namely the Stanley Cup and a Conn Smythe Trophy as NHL Playoffs MVP.
Would it surprise anyone if they just decided to add a Selke Trophy for the league’s top two-way forward next season?
