Only the best of the best players get enough points to become the top scorer of the league. This is a nuanced analysis of the NHL top scorer 2019 odds!
All ice hockey players combine skill, speed, agility, and balance into every single game. Have you ever imagined yourself on the ice in a high-level NHL game? The fast pace chasing of the hockey puck, swerving through players, dashing through the ice, gripping firmly onto the hockey stick and trying to get the perfect slap shot behind the goaltender! Well, players like Claude Giroux, Nikita Kucherov, Evgeni Malkin, Nathan MacKinnon, and Talyor Hall do that for a living, earning them awards and trophies.
Like last season, Taylor Hall was named the MVP and won the Hart Memorial trophy. While Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers accumulated a record 108 points to become the league’s top scorer according to reports by online sportsbook sites in Canada. There are 31 teams in the NHL, and all its players are trying to be the best to push their team to win trophies and awards. This article looks at who will be the top scorer of the league after seven months of gruelling games.
Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers could be the top scorer for three times in a row!
According to online sportsbook news sites Canada, Connor McDavid gathered 100 points in the 2016-2017 season and then 108 points in the 2017-2018 season! He has been in top form. It is unfortunate and underwhelming that his team, the Edmonton Oilers failed to make it to the playoffs last season! Currently, he is the favourite to be the MVP and win the Hart Memorial trophy. If Conner McDavid plays with much impetus as he did in the last 2 seasons he would certainly be the league’s top scorer. His odds are 2.50.
Pittsburgh Penguins’ Sidney Crosby might top the score leader board!
There is no doubt that ice hockey players have to be talented to participate in this back breaking sport. But a player that has won so many accolades because of this talent is “Sid the Kid,” is the captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins. In 2017, he was named one of the 100 Greatest NHL players in history. That same year he finished the league with 89 points and was second only to Connor McDavid.
He has already been MVP, winning the Hart Memorial trophy twice with the Penguins, once in 2007 and then in 2014. If he plays well this season and keeps healthy he will be topping the score leader board once again.
Any of these player can top the NHL scoring leader board!
It seems two of Toronto Maple Leafs’ star players are projected to top the score leader board this season, Auston Matthews and John Tavares. These two are some the rising stars in ice hockey to-date.
