By the time he was nine years old, Connor McDavid had already seen his share of adversity, but now he’s grown up to be a player who can be proud of the fact that he is the first player in the NHL to score 50 goals and become a five-time All-Star.
McDavid has been one of the NHL’s most popular stars since joining the Edmonton Oilers in the summer of 2015, and his remarkable transformation into a player of such high potential has seen him become one of Canada’s most recognizable faces.
After winning the Stanley Cup with the Edmonton 67s in 2016, McDavid has since become one the most recognizable players in the world, and is expected to be named the next captain of the Edmonton Stars in 2018.
He was even given the nickname “The Miracle” by the team after a memorable playoff series victory against the Vancouver Canucks.
The 21-year-old McDavid also won the 2017 Norris Trophy as the NHL leader in scoring, and the 2018 Vezina Trophy as a player.
His success has seen McDavid land in the top five in voting in the Puck Daddy NHL Prospects Rankings and has earned him an offer from the Nashville Predators, who have already offered him a contract worth $3.2 million per season.
Despite his success, McD is far from done with his growth as a hockey player.
He will now begin a new chapter in his life when he plays for the Edmonton Oil Kings in the Canadian Hockey League.
He is one of just three players in NHL history to reach 1,000 career points and a career-high 998 goals.

McDavid is also the first Canadian to reach 2,000 points in a single season, following Mark Messier in 2009-10.
In 2018, McDevill won the Hart Trophy as Canada’s top rookie, the Hobey Baker Award as Canada has produced the most rookies since the NHL began tracking them in 1971, and also finished in the Top 20 for scoring among players aged 17-24.
McDevill was also named the 2017 Rookie of the Year, the 2017-18 NHL Defensive Player of the Week, and was named the 2018 Hobey Bagger Award winner.
He also finished second on the club with four assists and scored one goal in the Oilers’ 6-1 win over the Calgary Flames in the Western Conference Final.

He had six goals and five assists in 54 games for the club in 2017-2018, his second season with the franchise, and won the Hobie Award as the league’s top player for the year.
McNabb also won a Hart Trophy in 2017 as the team’s best player, and he was the NHL Rookie of a Generation award winner in 2016.
McKenzie Blackwood became the first NHL player to record 50 goals in each of his first three seasons, and McDavid now has a chance to follow him.
McEvill also earned the Hart trophy as Canada had the highest scoring offense among players who had at least 100 games played in the league.
