With his first five points of the game, McDermott passed Bob Harstad (2,110) and the next six helped him overtake Buford (2,116), the last two players ahead of him on the Bluejays’ career scoring chart.
It took Buford and Harstad four seasons to amass their point totals. McDermott has notched his in 105 games over three seasons.
