Players with milestones yet to hit

The list above noted already hit milestones, but here is a list of ones that are just on the horizon for players.

Connor McDavid

Yeah, I put Connor Mcdavid on both lists, big whoop wanna fight about it? :)

Anyway, one well-publicized milestone that Connor McDavid is poised to achieve before the end of the season is he has 97 assists on the season, so the hunt for 100 is on. With the torrid pace he's been going at, he might just get it in the next game they play against Dallas. If McDavid achieves this milestone - which I have no doubt he will - he'll join some elite company as only Bobby Orr, Wayne Gretzky, and Mario Lemieux have seasons with 100+ assists. He's also only a single point away from grabbing the league lead in points, so we'll see how that goes by the end of the season

Leon Draisaitl

Leon Draisaitl is but a mere point away from 100 points on the season, again likely to get that against Dallas. This will be the fifth time he's achieved that milestone, and I have no doubt the Deutschland Dangler will.

Evan Bouchard

Bouchard makes an appearance on both lists too. Although Bouchard hasn't scored since March 28, he has 16 goals on the season and if he rediscovers his touch, he could hit 20 on the season for the first time in his career. Possible with nine games left.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

The Nuge has 17 goals right now and is poised to get 20. He's been a bit snakebitten too, having scored only once in the month of March, but it's entirely possible.

Adam Henrique

Another double appearance guy, Henrique is only three points away from 50 on the season, having put up 47 points between Edmonton and Anaheim.

Mattias Ekholm

Ekholm has scored in the last two games and if he gets one more he makes it to 10, a mark he would hit for only the second time in his career and the first time since the trade.

Evander Kane and Warren Foegele

Might as well combine these two as they're shooting for the same milestone - 40 points. Kane only has one point to go while Mclovin has three.

Ryan McLeod and Darnell Nurse

These two are shooting for 30 points. Mcleod is four points away while Nurse is five. Nurse also only has one goal to go to make it to 10.

Corey Perry and Sam Carrick

Hail to the bottom six forward group, these two are shooting for 20 points - Perry is two points away at 18 while Carrick is five points away at 15 - the latter between Anaheim and Edmonton combined, of course.
