Connor McDavid earned a spot on a short list of athletes who are well on their way to becoming all-time greats.

GQ Magazine released its 10 greatest athletes of the future and the Oilers forward is featured alongside other big names such as New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid and gymnast Simone Biles. 

This list was released two days after the magazine revealed its 50 greatest living athletes, which included Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux.

McDavid's vibrant photo is the work of photographer Pari Dukovic.
