Edmonton Oilers forward Connor McDavid wins Art Ross Trophy

The news we all knew and expected is now official: Connor McDavid has won his third Art Ross Trophy.

It was made official Wednesday afternoon with the NHL’s regular season with nobody coming close to McDavid’s 105 points on the season. Even teammate Leon Draisaitl, who was 21 points back of McDavid, really didn’t come close.

McDavid becomes the ninth player in history to win the award and becomes the third player to win the Art Ross three times before his 25th birthday joining Wayne Gretzky (five times) and Gordie Howe (three times).

The 21 point gap over his next closest competitor is the largest since 1990-91 when Gretzky (41-122—163 in 78 GP w/ LA) finished with 32 points ahead of Brett Hull (86-45—131 in 78 GP w/ STL).
