Athletistic / Hockey. The Ottawa Senators defeated the Edmonton Oilers last night in an NHL regular season home game with a score of 5:3. However, that didn’t stop Oilers captain Connor McDavid from achieving another statistical feat.

McDavid recorded two assists during the meeting in the Canadian capital. In 67 games this season, Connor has 117 points – 26 goals and 91 assists. McDavid became the first player since the 2006-2007 season to exceed 90 assists in a regular season. 17 years ago, Joe Thornton, then playing for the San Jose Sharks, succeeded.

Connor McDavid also became the first Edmonton player since Wayne Gretzky to reach the 90 assist mark. The legendary Canadian has conquered this level several times.

Edmonton is in fifth place in the Western Conference standings with 88 points after 69 games. The Oilers have 13 games remaining before the end of the regular season.
