The NHL season is five days old and there have already been many great individual performances. We have seen 19 three-point (or more) performances thus far. Connor McDavid has two while 17 other players including Leon Draisaitl have one. Brad Marchand had a five-point game, Auston Matthews had a four-goal performance while Ryan O'Reilly and David Pastrnak each had a 2-2-4 performance. 

It has been fun to watch and hopefully the offence continues.
