The NHL announced today that forward Connor McDavid has won the Hart Memorial Trophy as the league’s MVP. This is the second Hart Trophy in his career.

McDavid Wins Hart Trophy

The Hart Trophy is awarded “to the player judged to be the most valuable to his team.” To say that Connor McDavid is valuable to his team is an understatement. Heled his team in scoring this season with 105 points in 56 games played. Taken at 1st overall in the 2015 NHL Draft, McDavid has exceeded expectations, helping his team to once again clinch a playoff berth in the 2021 NHL Playoffs. In his career, he has played 407 games. McDavid has scored 195 goals, 379 assists, for 574 career points.

What This Means for the Team

Winning the Hart Trophy is no small feat. As the MVP of the league, McDavid had to go above and beyond his expectations to help his team through the toughest of times. He played a key role in his team’s scoring all season long while putting up strong defensive numbers. It’s hard to judge just what makes a player the “most valuable” to their team. Having said that, McDavid more than brings value to his team’s table. While the Edmonton Oilers haven’t made it to the Stanely Cup Finals in McDavid’s career yet, a Hart victory is absolutely promising.

The Oilers have to be happy with the talent that is brewing within their organization. McDavid has now won his second career Hart Trophy. Last season, teammate Leon Draisaitl was the winner. The Oilers have two incredible young centremen to build around. The organization is set up for success so long as the two of them continue their trajectory.
