Connor McDavid skates through an entire team for goal of the year (VIDEO)

Connor McDavid scored a goal last night that will make your head spin.

Late in the third period down 5-4 against the New York Rangers, the Edmonton Oilers superstar decided to take the game into his own hands.

After the puck hopped into the neutral zone, McDavid skated through basically the entire Rangers team and scored on one of the most remarkable efforts you’ll ever see.

Here’s the video of the goal, via Sportsnet:

“The bench went crazy,” teammate Zach Hyman said. “At that time of the game, to score a goal like that, it was pretty special. Only he can make a play like that. It was just Connor being Connor.”

The Oilers won the game 6-5 in overtime by the way of a Leon Draisaitl strike.

But beyond the Oilers getting the win, just about anyone reacting on Twitter couldn’t believe what they saw when McDavid scored the game-tying marker.

Adding two assists to his goal, McDavid now has 22 points through ten games this season, second to only Draisaitl’s 23 in league scoring.

Even the normally mild-mannered McDavid was in shock with his own skillset.

The Oilers uploaded an alternate angle, but it doesn’t make the goal by McDavid any easier to comprehend.

McDavid and the Oilers play next on Tuesday night against the Detroit Red Wings. Maybe he’ll score with a blindfold on this time.
