McDavid finished fourth in league scoring with 99 points (28 goals, 71 assists) in 56 games. He also recorded just 20 penalty minutes, the lowest amount among the league's top 12 scorers.

"It's a tremendous honour to win this award," said McDavid, a native of Newmarket, Ont. "It's really important to me to be respectful on the ice and there's a reward for that."
