Connor McDavid scores 1st NHL goal
Rookie beats Dallas netminder Kari Lehtonen, ties game in 2nd period
The wait is over for Connor McDavid, and perhaps all NHL fans, as the Edmonton Oilers rookie centre scored his first goal as a pro on Tuesday night.
McDavid found the net behind goalie Kari Lehtonen at the 12:18 mark of the second period to knot the score at two apiece on the road against the Dallas Stars.
Unfortunately, Jason Spezza played a big role in spoiling McDavid's special night by recording a hat trick in a 4-2 win for Dallas.
It's something that I'll remember for the rest of my life," McDavid said. "But like you said, obviously, not the way you want to end that game but pretty special to get it right away."
