Watch: Oilers rookie Connor McDavid scores first NHL goal

Wednesday October 14th, 2015

Edmonton Oilers rookie center Connor McDavid scored his first NHL goal on Tuesday in his third career game.

With the Oilers down 2–1 in the second period to the Dallas Stars, McDavid moved in on goal as defender Andrej Sekera ripped a shot from the left point. McDavid redirected it on goal, past goaltender Kari Lehtonen, for the score.

McDavid, a highly touted 18-year-old prospect, was taken No. 1 in June’s NHL draft. 


The team saved the puck afterwards, and marked it accordingly.

The Oilers went on to lose to the Stars 4–2.
