Connor McDavid Could Score 100 Points in 56 Games
A 100-point season is a benchmark of greatness in the N.H.L. That Connor McDavid is closing in on that total this season, with only 56 games to get there instead of 82, is simply remarkable.
With one point awarded for each goal or assist, one to five players get to 100 points in a typical season. McDavid hit the total in his first three full seasons. Last season, he reached 97 points; he would have made it four in a row, if not for the season’s being truncated to 68 to 71 games per team instead of 82.
