FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Riding on an air boat through the Everglades can make a guy hungry. And at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, Kingston Frontenacs left wing Lawson Crouse can put away some food.
That's how the top prospect for the 2015 NHL Draft found himself chomping on a worm during a trip to Everglades Holiday Park on Thursday.
"Eating worms isn't my specialty," he said.
But with $100 from Erie Otters center Connor McDavid on the line, Crouse chowed down.
"We saw only two alligators at that point and I wanted to spice it up a little bit," Crouse said. "I wouldn't normally do that but it was all fun."
