BUFFALO -- Erie Otters center Connor McDavid got a taste of what it will be like to be a big star.
McDavid joined Otters general manager Sherry Bassin and coach Kris Knoblauch here Thursday for the announcement of an Ontario Hockey League game between Erie and the Niagara Ice Dogs at First Niagara Center on Oct. 22.
That's just one game in a NHL arena, but it's all part of what's to come for the 17-year-old.
"It's going to obviously be pretty different," McDavid said. "It's starting to be pretty crazy. I'm just really excited to be there and get going and get this crazy year started."
