Connor McDavid Scores First NHL Goal Against Dallas Stars

The first overall pick unfortunately scores what should be the first of many NHL goals.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Connor McDavid, generational talent. The player so graciously gifted to the Edmonton Oilers in the NHL Draft Lottery after years and years of number one overall picks. Tonight he got his name on the scoresheet for the first time in his NHL career.

His first goal was a little tip in past Kari Lehtonen. If someday you're randomly playing bar trivia and you're asked which team allowed the first goal to McDavid you know the answer.

The goal tied the game 2-2. Both Edmonton goals against Kari Lehtonen in his season debut have been deflected past him from about the same spot.

That's great and all though, but how about we keep him at one NHL for a period eh Stars? A win against the lowly Oilers would be a pleasing way to end Tuesday night.
