“I’ve always said that I want to score more, that’s what I want to do,” McDavid said. “I want to find ways to score. I think I’m a good passer and can make plays and all that, but there’s definitely a knack to putting the puck in the net.”

We saw No. 97’s desire to light the lamp more this past season when he jumped from 30 goals as a sophomore to finding the back of the net 41 times as a third-year pro. Good enough for sixth in the league last season, similar progress this season could see McDavid add another trophy to his mantle: a Rocket Richard.
