Connor McDavid is the second unanimous winner of the NHL’s MVP award in league history. It’s a very rare accomplishment in sports.
Connor McDavid was named the NHL’s Hart Trophy winner on Tuesday as the “player adjudged to be the most valuable to his team.” McDavid posted a ridiculous 105 points in the pandemic-shortened, 56-game season, scoring 33 goals and tallying 72 assists.
It’s the second time the shifty and speedy Edmonton Oilers center has won the NHL’s MVP award. He previously won the Hart in 2017 after hitting the century mark in points (100) in his second season pro.
But the biggest takeaway is that voting for McDavid was unanimous – a rare feat that neither Sidney Crosby or Alex Ovechkin have achieved. McDavid received all 100 first-place votes on all 100 ballots despite a strong season from Auston Matthews who lead the league in goals (41, Rocket Richard winner).
