McDavid, linemates excel in Top Prospects Game

Thursday, 01.22.2015 / 11:31 PM / News

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

ST. CATHARINES, Ontario -- The focus was on Erie Otters center Connor McDavid at the 2015 BMO CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game at Meridian Centre on Thursday.

But it was his linemates, left wing Timo Meier (Halifax Mooseheads) and right wing Travis Konecny (Ottawa 67's), who combined for three goals and three assists to lead Team Bobby Orr to a 6-0 victory against Team Don Cherry.

"It's the luck of the draw if you click at these games or not," Konecny said. "It's hard coming together but it's definitely not hard playing with [McDavid and Meier]. They make it easier for everyone around them; you just have to wait and when the puck hits your stick put it on net."
