Recently, Crosby made a huge prediction that McDavid would break a major point record, one held since 1989.
Crosby Thinks that McDavid Can Reach This Insane Number of Points in a Year
Last season, Connor McDavid
shocked the NHL world by putting up over 150 points, a feat that hadn't been done since 1996. What many think is a ceiling for McDavid, Sidney Crosby
thinks is just the beginning. Recently, the star made claims that McDavid could still improve on his point total recorded last year.
"I mean, I didn't think 150 was going to be in the cards for him but he found a way to get there," Crosby said. "So, I don't think anything is out of the question for him as far as numbers are concerned."
"He just finds a way to find another level time and time again, so I would never bet against him."
McDavid Could Reach 170 Points Which is a Major Point Milestone
It's getting harder and harder to score points in the NHL, as the game gets faster and the skill level keeps increasing. Reaching 100 points is a major feat for most players.
If McDavid were to hit 170 points, that's just over 2 points per game, assuming he plays in all 82 games. The last time someone scored more than 170 points was Mario Lemieux in the 1988-89 season, where he recorded an astounding 199 points. If McDavid can surpass this, it will break the 35-year mark the milestone has stood.
