Nathan MacKinnon is running away with the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie this season. The No. 1 pick has validated the Colorado Avalanche's decision to pick him over defenseman Seth Jones with his play this season.

Don't take our word for it, just watch this shift in Montreal on Tuesday night. Not only did MacKinnon get the goal, his 23rd of the season, but the entire shift was a thing of absolute beauty.

Just check out those hands. Filthy.

With all due respect to Ondrej Palat in Tampa Bay, you might as well just give MacKinnon the Calder now and when you do, this might be as good of a clip as any to play in the highlight package.
