Connor McDavid enjoyed another spectacular season in 2020-21, claiming the Art Ross Trophy while racking up an NHL-best 105 points, and also winning the Hart Trophy as the league MVP for the second time in his career.

More of the same is expected from the Edmonton Oilers captain in the upcoming NHL campaign. McDavid now leads the way as the favourite to become the first player to win the Hart Trophy in consecutive seasons in over a decade, sporting short +400 odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

McDavid has emerged as the dominant force in the NHL since being selected first overall in the 2015 NHL Draft. The 24-year-old has cracked the 100-point mark four times over the past five seasons, and has led the league in points on three occasions during that stretch. The four-time NHL All-Star has benefited from playing alongside Leon Draisaitl, who took home the Hart Trophy in 2020, and sits just short of the favourites as a +1200 wager at sports betting sites to do it again next season. McDavid also enjoyed a stronger supporting cast in Edmonton that lifted the Oilers to seventh overall in goals scored last season.
