McDavid makes history with hat trick in season opener

Connor McDavid did not disappoint on the first night of the regular season.

The Edmonton Oilers superstar provided all of the offense in a 3-0 victory over the Calgary Flames, capping off a hat trick with an empty-netter in the final minute.

Watch: McDavid absolutely burns Flames for 2nd goal of game

McDavid scored three goals in a game for the second time in his young NHL career, and became the first Oiler to notch a hat trick in the club's first game of the season, according to TSN.

He's also the first player in franchise history to post multi-goal games in back-to-back season openers, according to Sportsnet.
