Winning the Art Ross Trophy as the National Hockey League’s leading scorer is incredibly difficult. Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks has already done it once in his career and he is looking to do it again. He has his eyes on it as he is tied for second in the league with Leon Draisaitl of the Edmonton Oilers. Patrick Kane has one more goal than Draisaitl so that is the tiebreaker but they have the same number of points at 34. They trail Connor McDavid of the Oilers who is in first with 40.
It is going to be really hard to catch McDavid as he has been the NHL’s best player pretty much since coming into the league. It will also be hard to keep up with Draisaitl because of the fact that he is one of the best scorers in the league and he plays significant power-play time with McDavid. There are also two Toronto Maple Leafs in Mitchell Marner and Auston Matthews on his tail as well. Mark Scheifele of the Winnipeg Jets isn’t that far behind them.
