Highest Rated Center in NHL 24

  • Connor McDavid (EDM)
  • Nathan MacKinnon (COL)
  • Leon Draisaitl (EDM)
  • Sidney Crosby (PIT)
  • Auston Matthews (TOR)
  • Tage Thompson (BUF)

This may be the easiest choice of them all. The number one Center in the NHL is Connor McDavid, and it really can’t be argued. Connor McDavid is basically guaranteed to get 100 point every season. He has reached at least 100 points in 6 of the 8 seasons that he has played in. The two seasons he didn’t reach 100 points was his rookie season where he was injured, but on pace for 100. The other season he got 97 points and only played in 64 games. Had he played two more games he probably would have gotten it.

Last year McDavid also achieved 153-point season. The first player to achieve at least 150 points in a season since Mario Lemieux did it in 1996. Connor McDavid is also a 6x All-Star, a 5x Art Ross winner, a 4x Ted Lindsay winner, a 3x Hart Trophy winner, and a newly Rocket Richard winner for his 64-goal performance last year. The list goes on and on when it comes to Connor McDavid. He is one of the greatest players to ever play in the NHL and we are witnessing something special every time McDavid steps onto the ice. Connor McDavid has been the highest rated NHL player in the video game since NHL 18 and I don’t see that trend stopping anytime soon.

Pick: Connor McDavid (EDM)
