SJHN Daily: McDavid Calls Losing to Sharks This Season ‘Low Point’ of His Career

Losing to the San Jose Sharks this season was the low point of Connor McDavid’s career.


On Nov. 9, the spiraling 2-9-1 Edmonton Oilers lost 3-2 to the 2-10-1 Sharks at SAP Center.

“That was a low point, I would say even in my career, it felt like,” McDavid told Pierre LeBrun on Wednesday, after the Oilers eliminated the Los Angeles Kings in the first round of the playoffs.

Edmonton would make drastic changes after losing to San Jose, replacing Jay Woodcroft with Kris Knoblauch as head coach, and going 47-18-5 after Nov. 9, pacing the NHL with a .707 Points %.

McDavid also spoke with LeBrun about a “good” team meeting after the loss to the Sharks.

The Oilers are set to take on the Vancouver Canucks in the second round of the playoffs.

Hopefully, losing to the 2024-25 edition of the Sharks is a little less humiliating!
