Of course: Connor McDavid scores beauty in first game back

Hey, maybe all that “Can Connor McDavid win the Calder?” isn’t overblown.

The super-hyped No. 1 pick of the 2015 NHL Draft reminded us of how much we missed him – not to mention how absurdly fast he is – with a goal in his first game back from a freakish injury.

It’s just a jaw-dropper.

Feast your eyes on the goal McDavid scored in the video above, beguiling a group of Columbus Blue Jackets in a way that evoked a little bit of Datsyukian magic.

Update: The Oilers ended up winning 5-1, with McDavid chipping in three points.
