McDavid edged Buffalo Sabres teammates Sam Reinhart (4-8—12 in 15 GP) and Jack Eichel (6-4—10 in 14 GP), Arizona Coyotes left wing Anthony Duclair (3-7—10 in 14 GP), and St. Louis Blues center Robby Fabbri (3-6—9 in 12 GP) for the honor.
McDavid, the No. 1 overall selection in the 2015 NHL Draft, picked up at least one point in 11 of his 15 March appearances, highlighted by a seven-game point streak (1-9—10) from March 14-26. He also registered five multi-point performances, led by a pair of goals -- including the overtime winner -- on March 1 in his first NHL meeting with Eichel (the No. 2 overall pick last year).
The 19-year-old Richmond Hill, Ont., native paces all rookies -- and ranks third in the NHL -- with an average of 1.07 points per game this season (15-30—45 in 42 GP). McDavid also won Rookie of the Month honors in October (5-7—12 in 12 GP) and February (5-12—17 in 14 GP).
