Looking Back at McDavid's Stellar Season



It's challenging to envision an improvement on Connor McDavid's recent year, yet the signs suggest he is only going to get better and better.

The 2022-23 season saw McDavid attain remarkable feats; with 64 Goals, 89 Assists, and 153 Points, he became the first NHLer to reach the 150 Point mark since Mario Lemieux's 161 in the 1995-96 season, despite playing 12 more games than Lemieux.

McDavid's monumental points total ranks second only to Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux's scores. With 153 points, he fell just two short of Steve Yzerman's 155 points in the 1988-89 season with the Detroit Red Wings.

The Hart Trophy was almost unanimously awarded to McDavid due to his exceptional performance, with just one voter not ranking him at 1st.

Despite having several Hart, Art Ross, & All-Star accolades to his name, McDavid is still chasing the elusive Stanley Cup.

This coveted victory, accomplished by his competitors, remains absent from McDavid's achievements. However, with his intense desire for success, an even more determined McDavid might just be unstoppable.
