Connor McDavid scores 500th NHL point with assist for Oilers, equals Sidney Crosby


Connor McDavid scored his 500th NHL point with an assist for the Edmonton Oilers against the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday.

“It’s a little milestone, I guess, a little thing along the way here which is nice,” McDavid said after he had two assists in a 3-2 win at Rogers Place. “To see and feel some of the reaction from my teammates and friends and family and stuff like that, it’s always special, so I really appreciate the support.”

The center reached 500 points in his 369th NHL game, the same number it took Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby to get to the milestone, which is eighth-fastest in history.
