Connor McDavid reached another career milestone on Saturday afternoon against the San Jose Sharks.

With his goal and assist in the first period, the Edmonton Oilers star became the first player since Pittsburgh Penguins legend Mario Lemieux in the 1995-96 season to reach 150 points. Via SportsCenter:

McDavid proceeded to add another goal in the third period and now sits at 151 points. Lemieux ended the 95-96 campaign with 161 points in total. While it’s well known the Oilers captain is in a league of his own in the NHL, he continues to get better with age.

The 26-year-old now has 64 goals and 87 assists in 80 games to lead Edmonton, who will be a scary matchup for anyone when the playoffs begin.

Connor McDavid becomes only the sixth player ever to reach the 150-point milestone. Aside from Lemieux, who surpassed that number on four occasions, Wayne Gretzky also accomplished the feat a whopping nine times, while Steve Yzerman, Phil Esposito, and Bernie Nichols also sit in the exclusive group.

After the Oilers’ 6-1 thrashing of San Jose, his teammates put together a congratulatory video for the impressive feat, which featured messages from the likes of Gretzky, Lemieux, and Yzerman.

I haven’t put a ton of thought into it,” McDavid said about his latest milestone, via CBC. “The guys kind of put a little video together of all the other five guys that have done it. It kind of hit me. That was special. To hear from all five was amazing.”

The Oilers currently sit in second place in the Pacific Division with a 48-23-9 record. Although notching 150 points in a single season in special, McDavid has made it clear time and time again that he’s more focused on finally leading Edmonton to a Stanley Cup. They got close last year before losing in the conference finals. With the West relatively wide open, anything is possible if McDavid is firing on all cylinders.
