Among active players, Connor McDavid was the fourth fastest to 100 points.
McDavid reached that milestone on Wednesday, which was when he played in his 92nd career game. Alex Ovechkin needed 77 games to reach that mark, Sidney Crosby took 80 contests, and Evgeni Malkin reached the milestone in 89 games. As far as McDavid is concerned, getting to 100 career points doesn't mean much. "I guess it’s (100 points) nice. But it’s not much of a milestone," said McDavid. "Tough to be excited about it when you see a guy like that (Jagr) coming in and the numbers he’s got." Jaromir Jagr, who ranks second in points behind only Wayne Gretzky, needed 118 games to get to 100 career points. Jan 19 - 8:44 AM

He's also celebrating his birthday Friday and is now 20 years old. That leaves him with 30 goals and 98 points in 89 contests as a teenager.

News flash, Connor McDavid has been amazing in calendar-2016.

As the proverbial next one gears up to play in his third calendar year, let's take a quick twirl through the first two. McDavid got just 13 games in 2015 before suffering a broken collarbone in early November, though he still managed to post five goals and 12 points with 24 shots. In 2016 McDavid has tallied 24 goals and 78 points with 183 shots in just 68 games. He's not quite Crosbian-level, but give it a bit more time because he'll get there.

Connor McDavid scored a goal and assisted on another in a 3-2 overtime loss against the Sharks on Friday.

McDavid got a couple nice bounces for his 13th goal of the season. He currently has 23 points in his last 18 games. The speedy center has just been way too much too handle for even the best skating defensemen in the NHL on a nightly basis. McDavid currently leads the NHL with 42 points, three ahead of any other player.

Connor McDavid registered an assist in Edmonton's 3-2 overtime win against St. Louis on Monday.

With that, McDavid became the first player to reach the 40-point milestone this season, a feat which he did in 34 games. He's slowed down lately with two points in his last five contests, but we expect McDavid to get hot again before too long as he should continue to be one of the league's top forwards this season.

Connor McDavid scored his first ever goal in a shootout.

The kid leads the NHL in scoring with 39 points but has only one assist in his last three games. Look for McDavid to start busting out offensively again as the NHL heads into Christmas time.

Connor McDavid had a lot to say about Philadelphia's Brandon Manning after Thursday's game.

Manning was involved in the incident that led to McDavid suffering a broken collarbone last season. The play looked more like an unfortunate accident rather than Manning intentionally trying to injure McDavid. McDavid and Manning were seen exchanging words after McDavid had scored a goal. "I did all I could defending him last year in the media. Everyone wanted to make a big deal saying he did it on purpose, and they wanted me to to say some comments today (morning) about what went on last year," said McDavid. "I thought it was one of the (most) classless things I’ve ever seen on the ice. He said some things. I guess we can put the whole if he did it on purpose thing to rest because what he said out there kind of confirmed that. Shows what kind of guy he is the way he doesn’t step up and fight some of our guys." After hearing McDavid's comments, Manning denied having intentionally tried to hurt him.

Connor McDavid collected his 11th multi-point game of the season during Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Sabres.

Simply amazing. The sophomore phenom is now up to 25 helpers and 36 points in 28 games thus far in his first season as Captain. Seems safe to say that he's pretty good at the hockeys.

Connor McDavid went through concussion protocol Sunday.

The NHL has concussion spotters now and the one in Edmonton misread a signal that McDavid gave and had the referees send him to the quiet room in the second period. "I was pretty shocked, to be honest," said McDavid, who had no idea why anyone thought he was concussed. "I hit my mouth on the ice. You reach up and grab your mouth when you get hit in the mouth, it’s a pretty normal thing. It kind of sucks because that’s the rule - you hit your head, you reach up (to grab it), they take you off the ice I guess." McDavid told officials he didn't reach for his head but was checking his mouth for blood. Nevertheless he missed ice time but returned for the third period. McDavid was held off the scoresheet but still leads the NHL in points with 34.

Connor McDavid extended his point streak to seven games during Thursday's 6-3 win over the Jets.

And if that weren't enough, he has five multi-point games with a trio of games, like tonight's, in which he's posted three points. Tonight, though, he had merely a trio of helpers giving him nine assists and 15 points during the streak. McDavid has 23 assists and 34 points in 25 games. Wow.
