Connor McDavid continued his successful season as arguably the top NHL prospect in the OHL on Wednesday night.
The forward posted six points, including four goals to capture his first OHL hat trick. But it might have been one of his goals that stole the show.
McDavid added another goal to his highlight tape, this time making it appear he was going to split the defense. Instead, he turned on the jets and went around the defense thanks to some help from impressive stick-handling, then slotting a goal in the Erie Otters' 8-4 win over Guelph.
McDavid, who is projected to be the No. 1 or No. 2 selection in the 2015 NHL draft, now has 98 points in 37 games. The 2.64 points per game pace is ahead of his total last year when he tallied 99 in 56 games.
London’s Mitchell Marner is first place with 104 points.
