McDavid was named the winner of the Ted Lindsay Award, presented annually “to the most outstanding player in the NHL,” as voted by fellow members of the NHLPA.
He’s the first Oilers player since Mark Messier in 1990 to win the award, which was previous known as the Lester B. Pearson Award.
McDavid scored the most points (100) in the 2016-17 regular season to win his first Art Ross Trophy. He also led the NHL in assists (70), points per game (1.22), even strength assists (45) and even strength points (71). In his second NHL season, the 20-year-old McDavid joins Crosby and Mario Lemieux as only the third player in the Award’s 46 seasons to be selected by his peers as the “most outstanding player” before the age of 21.
