Connor McDavid has been voted the league’s most outstanding player by his peers for the second straight season. McDavid finished first in Lindsay voting edging out Colorado center Nathan MacKinnon and New Jersey left wing Taylor Hall, both were also finalists for the Hart Trophy unlike McDavid this season.
Despite how poor the Oilers were, McDavid posted another fantastic season. McDavid scored a career high 41 goals and 108 points this season. That total was better than last season when he won the Hart Memorial Trophy, but the Oilers missed the playoffs in 2017-18 which no doubt altered voting for this year’s awards.
McDavid: “To the city of Edmonton, thank you for being patient with us. We’ll be back. I promise.” #Oilers
