Connor McDavid’s NHL career is off to an incredible start. The 20-year-old — yes, he’s still just 20 — has already put together a 100-point season and won several awards, including the Hart Trophy for the league’s MVP in 2016-17. He even landed an eight-year, $100 million contract extension already.
Well, it doesn’t appear that the Oilers’ superstar will be slowing down in his third season.
McDavid scored two goals in a 92-second span during Edmonton’s preseason game against the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday night, including an absurd goal in which he flipped the puck into the air before then ripping it into the net.
Check out that incredible goal:

Is there even a point to trying to defend Connor McDavid anymore? pic.twitter.com/pIRDb2EUOQ

He’s arguably the best player in the sport, and he doesn’t turn 21 years old until 2018. Amazing.
