Connor McDavid Focused On Team Goals

You get the sense he could do it if he really wanted. He just might this season.

But Connor McDavid and 50 goals are a match that hasn’t happened — at least not yet.

“I definitely think he can,” linemate Kailer Yamamoto said. “He’s a pass-first guy, but his shot’s unbelievable.

“He’s been working towards that. He has a really good shot (to do it) this year.”

One thing is for sure: The Oilers captain isn’t going to compromise team success for any pursuit of one of hockey’s great scoring thresholds.

“This team has done the individual awards thing and the stats and all that,” McDavid said before his first preseason game Friday. “Our focus is on team only and winning games and getting ourselves into a good spot to continue to take steps forward.”
