Connor McDavid continues to bolster his status as the world's top hockey talent.

The Edmonton Oilers star reached the 100-point mark in just his 53rd game this season when he notched his fourth point Saturday against the Vancouver Canucks.

McDavid has now totaled four or more points in seven games this season and leads the NHL scoring race by 21 points.

The 24-year-old is averaging 1.88 points per game, which is the highest mark since Mario Lemieux's 2.30 in 1995-96. He's on pace for 155 points over a full 82-game campaign.

If McDavid closes the campaign at this pace, he'll join Lemieux, Adam Oates, Bernie Nicholls, Steve Yzerman, Phil Esposito, and Wayne Gretzky as the only players to average at least 1.88 points per game over a season (minimum 50 games).

The Oilers defeated the Canucks, 4-3, and will finish the season as the North Division's No. 2 seed.
