LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Connor McDavid scored a goal and showcased his speed and tenacity on the forecheck. He even impressed his coach, and Brent Sutter isn't the type of person to toss compliments around like souvenir pucks for the kids.
But ask McDavid how he played and the answer is a bit different.
"I'd say like a C-plus," the 16-year-old phenom said following Canada's 7-3 rout of Sweden here at Herb Brooks Arena. "I don't think it was my best game by any means, but certainly wasn't my worst. Lots of stuff I can build off of."
It's hard to see where McDavid, who is at development camp aiming to become the first 16-year-old to make Canada's national junior team since Sidney Crosby in 2004, still needs improvement.
