2018 Fantasy Outlook
McDavid finished last season with a league-high 108 points en route to securing the Art Ross Trophy and Ted Lindsay Award for two years running. Having produced the first 40-goal campaign of his career, the only knock on the world-class center's game is his lack of creating with the man advantage; in fact, less than 25 percent of McDavid's career production is derived from his power-play exploits. Still, given his soft hands, unparalleled skill set and the presence of established top-line cohort Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, fantasy owners will be hard-pressed to pass on McDavid if lucky enough to land him with the first overall pick.

Factors into team's lone goal

McDavid recorded an assist in a 3-1 loss to Pittsburgh on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
After Leon Draisaitl opened the scoring, the Penguins scored three unanswered. McDavid drew the primary assist on the German's goal, but that would be it for No. 97, as Pittsburgh would limit Edmonton's captain to a single point. While it wasn't a good result for his team, McDavid is now up to 82 points in 2018-19 and well on his way to a third straight 100-point campaign.

2015
McDavid's injury-shortened rookie year offered plenty of promise, but his second act was nothing short of spectacular -- this time, he played all 82 games and blew away the competition with 30 goals and 70 assists for an even 100 points. That’s 11 more than Sidney Crosby and Patrick Kane, who tied for second, and McDavid rounded his line out with a plus-27 rating while leading the formerly cellar-dwelling Oilers two rounds deep into the Stanley Cup playoffs. Just 20 years old, McDavid has quite arguably unseated Crosby for the title of best player in hockey -- you may not find anyone outside of Pittsburgh willing to argue otherwise. What’s next for McDavid, who inked an eight-year, $100 million contract extension over the summer? Well, as long as he can stay healthy (unlike Crosby, whose illustrious career has been dogged by concussions), a decade-plus of utter domination would be a reasonable expectation.
If not for a broken clavicle that knocked him out for two-plus months, McDavid would have fully lived up to the hype of being drafted first overall in 2015, as he put up 16 goals and 32 assists for 48 points in the 45 games he suited up for. The 19-year-old phenom has been compared favorably to Sidney Crosby, so expect McDavid to again manage a point-per-game pace as the Oilers’ top-line center, this time finishing among the league’s top scorers if he can stay healthy. Thanks to defensive improvements to the roster as well as his own projected growth as a player, McDavid should also see improvement from last season’s minus-1 rating. The sky's the limit for the Canadian teen, even on an Edmonton team where first overall picks go to die.
McDavid is a generational talent whose pro peak should -- and likely will -- exceed Sidney Crosby's peak. The 18-year-old has elite hockey smarts and sublime skills, but what separates him from everyone else is his ability to execute at warp speed. He's certainly faster than Sid the Kid at the same age and his change of pace -- which leaves opponents twisted like pretzels -- will translate immediately into the NHL. That means the ceiling for the next captain of the Oil is through the roof. But Edmonton fans and fantasy owners need to temper their expectations for him in 2015-16. The NHL was a very different league when Sid the Kid delivered 102 points as a rookie. That being said, McSavior will pair well with the speedy Taylor Hall, and both will pile up the points. A hundred-point campaign will eventually come, but not for a few more seasons.
