Connor McDavid has been named a finalist for the Calder Trophy.

McDavid missed a good chunk of the year because of a clavicle injury, but he still managed to post an impressive 16 goals and 48 points in 45 games. The 19-year-old may not have put up the highest amount of points for rookies in 2015-16, but his point-per-game pace will surely put him in contention for the award.

Connor McDavid will be glad to be on the other side of the draft lottery equation this season.

"It was so stressful, not just for myself but for my family," McDavid recalls. "It’s going to be so different for me this year, rooting for my own team to win the lottery instead of sitting down waiting to find out how my life is going to be impacted in so many different directions." With the odds extremely high that McDavid would go first overall, he was essentially waiting for an envelope to determine what city and organization he would live and work in for years to come. This year Auston Matthews, the presumptive first overall pick, is going through that process and McDavid feels for him. Of course, if Matthews goes to Edmonton there will be no shortage of other first overall picks that will be able to relate with him.

Connor McDavid will play for Canada in the 2016 World Championships.

It will give McDavid a chance to extend his campaign after he was limited to 45 games due to a broken collarbone. "There wasn’t much to play for late in the season but I’m definitely excited to play for a championship whether that’s in the worlds or the World Cup (playing for Team North America in September). It’ll be fun," McDavid said. He had 16 goals and 48 points in his rookie campaign.

Connor McDavid has been named the NHL rookie for the month of March.

McDavid scored five goals and 16 points in 15 contests last month. That brings him up to 15 goals and 45 points in 42 contests. The next best rookie in March was Buffalo's Sam Reinhart, who had four goals and 12 points in 15 games.

Connor McDavid scored his 15th of the season to stretch his points streak to seven games.

The NHL's best rookie likely won't win the Calder as he sat out 37 games with a broken clavicle but don't be fooled by the vote because McDavid is heads and shoulders above anyone else including Artem Panarin and Jack Eichel. McDavid has 45 points in 41 games as he also chipped in with an assist. McDavid should be a top five pick next season in most hockey pools.
Mar 27 - 9:01 AM

Connor McDavid recorded an assist in a 6-3 victory over San Jose Thursday night.

That extended McDavid's point streak to six games. He now has 14 goals and 43 points in 40 contests in 2015-16. He's now tied with Dylan Larkin for fourth place in the rookie scoring race.
Mar 25 - 10:59 AM

Connor McDavid picked up two assists in a 4-2 loss to Arizona on Tuesday.

Mar 23 - 2:18 AM

Mar 21 - 8:39 AM

Connor McDavid is on a three-game point streak.

McDavid reached that point by registering an assist in Edmonton's 2-0 victory over Vancouver Friday night. He now has 14 goals and 39 points in 37 contests in 2015-16, which puts him in a tie for fifth place in the rookie scoring race.
Mar 19 - 5:07 AM

Connor McDavid registered two assists in Edmonton's 6-4 victory over St. Louis Wednesday night.

McDavid has 14 goals and 38 points in 36 contests in 2015-16. If he had been able to stretch his current point-per-game pace throughout an entire campaign without getting injured, he would be the frontrunner for the Calder Trophy right now. As it is, he's at least lived up to the hype, which is saying a lot given how high the bar was set for him.
Mar 17 - 10:59 AM

Connor McDavid had five shots on goal in the Oilers’ 4-0 loss to the Coyotes on Saturday night.

McDavid was a minus-two in 19:25, too. What’s wrong with him? We kid. McDavid has 14 goals and 35 points this season. Patrick Maroon and Zack Kassian each had 12 penalty minutes.
Mar 13 - 12:59 AM

Connor McDavid scored the game winning goal in Thursday night's 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild.

The rookie genius is one of the hottest scorers in the NHL since his return from a broken collarbone. McDavid has 14 goals and 35 points in 33 games this season and 23 points in 20 games since his return to the lineup last month.
Mar 10 - 11:24 PM

Connor McDavid is expected to play alongside Taylor Hall on Thursday.

McDavid and Hall have played together before, but since McDavid returned from a broken collarbone he's played primarily on the first line while Hall has been paired with center Leon Draisaitl. McDavid and Hall have the potential to be a potent combination and given that Edmonton isn't making the playoffs either way, they might as well experiment with different line setups.
Mar 10 - 8:47 AM

Connor McDavid scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

McDavid picked up an assist on Taylor Hall's second period goal and he added one of his own to cut Columbus' lead to 5-3 in the third period. The 19-year-old has 13 goals and 34 points in just 30 games this season. He'll continue to be an impact fantasy forward down the stretch. He must be owned in every single fantasy format.
