McDavid named OHL Rookie of the Month

Erie Otters center Connor McDavid is off to quite a start in the Ontario Hockey League.

Just one day after being added to the Subway Super Series, McDavid was named the OHL's Rookie of the Month for October on Thursday. The Toronto native had six goals and six assists in 10 games.

The third player to receive "exceptional player" status by Hockey Canada for early entry into the OHL, McDavid has a league-leading 14-game point-scoring streak and leads all OHL rookies with 18 points (seven goals, 11 assists). He notched at least a point in each of the 10 games he played in October.

Wednesday, McDavid was selected to represent the OHL at the 2012 Subway Super Series, which will take place next Thursday against Team Russia in Guelph, Ontario. McDavid will be the youngest to play in that event, which helps determine Team Canada's roster at the World Junior Championships.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
