Oilers center Connor McDavid has said it time and again since winning the Hart Trophy last season: "One season doesn't make a career."
Nobody in hockey thinks McDavid is going to be a one-hit wonder. The expectation instead is that McDavid, the only NHL player to put up 100 points last season, is a 20-year-old embarking on a Hockey Hall of Fame career.
More immediately, the panel of NHL.com voters tasked with making preseason trophy predictions thinks McDavid will be a two-time Hart Trophy winner three seasons into his NHL career.
McDavid received 11 first-place votes and was one of two players named on all 17 ballots submitted. The other player to be named on all 17 ballots was Penguins center Sidney Crosby, who received four first-place votes.
