Notable Art Ross Trends

  • Connor McDavid is the only NHL player to win multiple Art Ross trophies this decade, (2017, 2018, 2021 & 2022). McDavid is a generational talent and the consensus best NHL player.
  • A single player racking up multiple Art Ross trophies isn’t uncommon. For two decades, from 1980-2001, only three players won the Art Ross (Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr).
  • Only one player over age 30 has led the NHL in points since 1997. Martin St. Louis won the Art Ross Trophy with Tampa Bay at age 37 in 2012-13.
  • St. Louis’ win came in a 48-game shortened season, however, which is further evidence the Art Ross has become a sub-30 award. The NHL is played at a speed now that favors younger players.
