Connor McDavid Is The NHL's Rookie Of The Month For October

The least surprising news of the day.

Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports

Earlier today Taylor Hall was named the NHL's third star of the week and now, in completely unsurprising news, Connor McDavid has been named the NHL's Rookie of the Month for October. Playing at a point per game pace - 5 goals and 7 assists - it was never going to be anyone else. Perhaps the only thing about this that is the least bit surprising is that the NHL didn't use the opportunity to pre-emptively name him Rookie of the Month for November, December, January, February, March, and April as well.
