The 2022-23 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs are days away. The Boston Bruins dominated the regular season from start to finish and there is renewed hope in Toronto as the Maple Leafs look destined to end their 20-year drought of not winning a playoff series. However the one team that has everyone talking right now is the Edmonton Oilers. The Oilers have been the best team in the NHL since the start of the calendar year. Over the past four seasons that have one of the top winning percentages down the stretch. This team has more depth than they have had in a number of seasons. The posted the NHL’s best powerplay of all-time. The Oilers are led by their captain, Connor McDavid who had a spectacularly insane season this year.
Connor McDavid All Time NHL Playoff Stats
Last season, and arguably for the past five seasons, Connor McDavid was the best player in the game. Eastern-based hockey writers and some sports fans thought that Auston Matthews was “the guy” last season… nope it was McDavid all along and now (like he needed more motivation) he is poised to have an exceptional playoff run after a remarkable season where he became only the sixth player in NHL history to put up over 150 points in a season (153).
Here is a look at Connor McDavid’s playoff performance to date.
Connor McDavid has 21 goals, 34 assists and a plus-minus of +17 in 37 games in the playoffs in his career. Should the Oilers go on to the Stanley Cup Finals and win it all this year, you have to think that McDavid could put up 40-50 post season points this season. Which puts him close to 200 points if you combine the regular season and playoffs).
It would not be a surprise if Connor McDavid in his fifth post season wins the Stanley Cup. It took the Edmonton Oilers five seasons to win their first Stanley Cup in 1984. Hockey works in mysterious ways some times. Regardless expect McDavid and the Oilers to enjoy some great playoff success this Spring.
