On Wednesday night, in an important 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets, Edmonton Oilers captain Connor McDavid hit the first statistical checkpoint on the way to the Hockey Hall of Fame for the world’s best and most electrifying striker In its sixth season, only a handful of games with 500 career points, reaching the milestone in exactly the same number of starts – 369 – as the final titanic prospect of entry into the NHL, Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby

Together, McDavid and Crosby are the eighth fastest players in history to climb the 500-point barrier and follow a collection of incredible talent who have enjoyed the friendlier goal conditions of earlier eras

But the two also have one more thing in common in this very specific statistical milestone: although few got it faster, it took McDavid and Crosby longer than necessary to get 500 points due to circumstances beyond their control / p>

And at McDavid in particular, it’s what he has endured and endured through for more than five seasons that makes reaching the milestone all the more impressive

For the 24-year-old, it was hiatus after hiatus in the early stages of his hockey career, with some being specific to him and others not.He has sustained many minor injuries, as well as a handful of serious injuries, including a knee injury that spanned the career threatened to affect his career

Throughout it all, he’s just stayed tirelessly productive. When McDavid was producing at a time per game to start his rookie season before breaking his collarbone and crashing into the boards on one of his patented fearless trips into the net, he came back and only improved those numbers when one of the main ligaments in his knee ripped from the blunt force of a goal post in the final game of his most productive season at the time, taking one of the chicest rehabs in hockey history through the summer months and into training camp the following season, McDavid did miraculously Wise the opening line-up and improved his career highs with an improved average production in a season shortened by the COVID-19 pandemic

Regardless of whether his rhythm is broken or not, when McDavid has been on NHL ice, he has consistently achieved unmatched levels of production where he is already improving

It seemed almost fitting that McDavid’s Ride or Death, Leon Draisaitl, also hit a round number in defeating Winnipeg, one of the few players to have managed to stay in McDavid’s production orbit (if only partly through his connection with McDavid), reached 450 points for his career with his most recent multi-point performance

Although he can be mentioned in the same breath today, Draisaitl follows his teammate by a significant chunk of the points while appearing in 81 more games or essentially one regular season

The world’s best players travel along a curve, including McDavid.But his starting point is the culmination of most players who rely on producing for their teams, and his influence grows with every NHL game he plays , getting stronger

Jesse Puljujarvi scored his fifth goal in his last seven games for Edmonton, and goalkeeper Mike Smith averted 20 shots for his second straight win

He has had six goals and seven assists since February 1, when he scored a goal and supported the 4: 3- The Jets’ loss to the Flames scored Demko kept his team in the game on Friday with a series of clutch saves One of his best of the night came late in the first frame when the Vancouver netminder snapped a furious puck out of the air to give Kyle Connor a power play Robbing Goal “I thought you knew about puck dropping that it was the kind of game where a mistake would have a huge impact on the bottom line of the game,” said Demko, who stopped 29-of -30 shots for the Canucks (8-12-1) “Kind of a playoff game, but I thought our guys rose to the challenge and made a good effort. The Canucks pulled the goalkeeper 2:33 on the game clock, but Vancouver couldn’t n got puck past Brossoit to force overtime instead, Mason Appleton forced a giveaway on Canucks’ blue line and drove the puck into the empty net to seal the game.Brossoit was intermittently tested on Friday as the middle of the second half went Vancouver defender Nate Schmidt with the goalkeeper on a breakaway 1-1 Brossoit stopped the initial explosion but couldn’t control the rebound The puck bounced back into the crease and the goalkeeper fell on it just in time to prevent that he crossed the goal line The Canucks had a chance at a couple of power games but couldn’t finish “I’m just sick of saying we played a good game but we didn’t score”It was another one of those tonight,” said Elias Pettersson. It was a frustrating year for the Star Center, which has 14 points (five goals, nine assists) in 21 games, Pettersson said he and his linemates had opportunities on Friday but things could have made things more complicated than they needed to be “I’m trying to get the perfect pass when maybe I can shoot the easy shot and get through a fight and hopefully get a goal,” he said. “I don’t know, maybe If the puck doesn’t go in, I just have to simplify “Vancouver had a lot of puck on Friday, but didn’t provide enough traffic before Brossoit,” said coach Travis Green. “But there is also another team that has a say in what’s going on Ice is going on And sometimes you miss the net because they’re on the line of fire and ready to block a shot, “he said.” Every time it’s a 2-0 game with a clean sheet ibt it’s a highly competitive game and you can sit and find out why you didn’t score all day but we didn’t score at the end of the day teams will fight again in Vancouver on Sunday This report from The Canadian Press was first published published on February 19, 2021 Gemma Karstens-Smith, The Canadian Press
