Connor McDavid’s best game yet: Five points vs. Maple Leafs


The Oilers could be a big seller during the trade deadline, but that’s not the only reason to keep an eye on Edmonton.

Connor McDavid is making up for lost time from his freak injury, scoring highlight reel goals often enough that he’s almost doing so at will.

In many cases, he’s used his speed to leave opposing defenses helpless. In this case against his hometown team in the Toronto Maple Leafs, McDavid took advantage of a nice Benoit Pouliot pass. Check out that nice tally in the video above.

Update: It turned out to be special night for McDavid in more ways than just that one goal. With five points in Edmonton’s 5-2 win against Toronto, he set a new career-high in his young career.

Remarkable stuff … and likely just the beginning for the NHL’s latest wunderkind.

It was also a special night for Jordan Eberle, by the way.
